Last week the Obama Administration issued a set of rules and regulations it said would alleviate concerns Christians and others have about the mandate that employers–including many religious employers–pay for contraception and abortion-inducing drugs under the new healthcare law. The new rules, however, change little.
Today members of the House Public Health Committee voted to pass HB1037 by Representative Andy Mayberry.
Sen. Gary Stubblefield (R-Branch) has filed a bill essentially allowing a pregnant woman to use the same sort of physical force defending her unborn baby as she could herself or one of her other children.
SB170 acknowledges that pregnant women are often the victims of assault or abuse, and specifies that a pregnant woman can use force to defend her unborn baby from an attack.
