Democrats To Curtail Abortions
According to descriptions from people who have seen the measure, the package also would provide grants for sex education with an “abstinence focus” but would require that the programs include complete instruction on contraceptives.
Abortion providers would be required to notify patients of procedure risks. In the past, abortion-rights groups have often fought such patient notification proposals because they considered the wording overly alarmist. But the abortion providers would fashion notifications with guidance from medical groups, such as the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which does not oppose abortion rights.
There are also provisions for adoption tax credits, funding for nurses to make home visits for teenage and new mothers, funding for day-care programs and expanded funding for health care for low-income mothers and children.
Encouraging. But are Republicans willing to compromise on issues like sex education???
