(Salem, OR)  --  Republican lawmakers in Oregon want late-term abortions to be illegal in the state. House Bill 3017 was introduced yesterday. It would prevent doctors in the state from performing an abortion for a fetus that's more than 20 weeks old, which is about halfway through a normal pregnancy. Current Oregon law does not have mandatory waiting periods or parental notification for abortions and is one of the few states to allow them to be publicly funded. The new bill, like several others that have been filed by GOP legislators this year, isn't expected to get past the Democratically-controlled Oregon legislature and governorship.
