  • New Jersey: Rutgers 'Family Cap' Study To Be Released Today
    welfare During the same period there were 14 000 fewer births among women on welfare than would be expected without the family cap provision The study found that while the national birth rate among women of childbearing age dropped 7 8 over the four years the birth rate plummeted 24 among women on welfare in the state The law prohibits welfare recipients from receiving an additional 64 a month to support children born while the mother is on welfare Bergen Record 11 2 However the provision specifies that a welfare client who has a child will receive increased food stamps Medicaid coverage and even child care The Rutgers study marks the nation s first attempt to document the impact of the family cap pioneered in New Jersey and adopted by 21 other states Leusner Newark Star Ledger 11 1 New Jersey s family cap provision has fueled the abortion debate throughout the state even prompting some groups on both sides of the abortion issue to unite against the provision Bear Atwood president of New Jersey s NOW chapter said The policy has not only put children at risk but has also pushed women into having abortions Marie Tasy of the

  • Family Cap Causing Abortions
    most predictable outcomes of the family cap child exclusion policy as implemented by twenty three states are the likely increase in the number of babies aborted by indigent women many of whom will feel financially trapped and abandoned and the further impoverishment of children born to women on welfare Recently my worst fears regarding abortion and the family cap were confirmed by a Rutgers University draft study prepared for the state of New Jersey which estimated that New Jersey s abortion rate increased by 240 abortions per year as a result of the state s family cap As a result since 1993 nearly 900 abortions have occurred in New Jersey due to the family cap Thousands of other children have also been left to fend for themselves because their parents are not allowed to receive assistance on their behalf I led a broad based coalition of groups opposing the state s original request for a waiver in 1992 to implement a family cap policy because we knew that the family cap would only drive women into greater depths of poverty and despair and consequently increase the likelihood that they would abort their child Sadly our concerns were confirmed by the Rutgers study We knew at the time that money or more precisely the lack of it heavily influences a woman s decision to abort her child A major study by the Alan Guttmacher Institute a research organization associated with Planned Parenthood found that 68 of women having abortions said they did so because they could not afford to have a child now Among 21 of the total sample this was the most important reason for the abortion no other factor was cited more frequently as most important Demographers have pointed out that young poor and minority women are more likely to have abortions than older more affluent and white women even though these same groups are also more likely to oppose the right to abortion Seven in ten 70 percent women with incomes of less than 25 000 disapprove of abortion compared with 52 percent of more affluent women Yet poorer women account for two thirds 67 percent of abortions One expert observes Few would say an abortion is a good thing but many women who believe that abortion is wrong find themselves unable to support a child when they become pregnant The family cap is likely to tip the balance for each poor woman who feels that society has no real interest in the survival of her baby She will get a powerfully negative message that her child has no value especially from those states where Medicaid abortion is readily available Then one of two things will happen The woman will have an abortion or the family will descend further into poverty Mr Speaker the family cap child exclusion might present a close question if the incremental payment for a new baby were really so high that it might encourage women and girls to get pregnant and have babies

  • Indiana State Senate Overrides Governor's Veto of Feticide Law
    feared it would make doctors who perform abortions criminally liable I was shocked especially when I read the governor s veto message said pro life Rep James Buck R Kokomo who introduced the legislation Buck said he introduced the bill because of a 1995 Indianapolis drive by shooting The case stemmed from a dispute over a parked car escalated into a racial argument and culminated in the shooting of Melanie Elmore and her husband Kevin Melanie 8 1 2 months pregnant was struck in the abdomen by shotgun blasts Her baby was mortally wounded and stillborn Two brothers Judge and Troy Hatchett were charged with feticide attempted murder and conspiracy A jury found the two Indianapolis men not guilty of all charges in a 1996 trial What shocked Buck at the time was that under Indiana law the unborn baby s killer could not be charged with murder because an unborn child is not legally considered a person until birth A charge of feticide a Class C felony carries a two to eight year prison sentence Buck s legislation would allow for a murder charge Right to life organizations such as Indiana Citizens for Life and Indiana Democrats for Life

  • Kansas Lawmakers Ponder When Life Begins
    the fetus can now be medically determined to be clearly a separate person from his or her mother Rep Jan Pauls D Hutchison said at the House Judiciary Committee hearing Roe vs Wade stated that if personhood is established then the fetus has a right to life guaranteed by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution and Section 1 of the Bill of Rights of the Kansas Constitution To back up their assertions the sponsors and Right To Life of Kansas Inc brought in Dr Paddy Jim Baggott from the Pope Paul VI Insitute of Omaha Nebraska Baggot an obstretician gynecologist perinatologist and geneticist delivered what amounted to a lecture on conception and fetal devilopoment using a projector and illustrations Baggot explained that in the first five days after conception a human embryo goes from a single cell to 120 cells This is what I did in the first five days of my life Baggott said using a laser like light to highlight a series of illustrations We are anything but a clump of stagnant cells in our first five days of existence At one point Baggott displayed pictures taken of an unborn child in the uterus in which the heart eyes and backbone were clearly visible Here s what I looked like and any of us looked like four weeks after conception he said Denise Everhart a former state representative from Topeka who now represents the Pro Choice Action League said the concept of fetal personhood hasn t been established Everhart urged the committee to reject the resolution which would require Stovall to challenge state laws and regulations that allow public funding of abortions or authorize them to be performed at public institutions Elmer Feldkamp president of Right To Life of Kansas said such a challenge likely would force a

  • States moving further to protect life in 1998
    override Clinton s veto of the bill last October That s what we set out to do and that s still our goal Canady added A federal judge last month blocked enforcement of New Jersey s partial birth abortion ban which the legislature enacted over pro abortion Republican Gov Christie Whitman s veto Trial has been set for June 3 This is a process that s going to be fought out over an extended period of time until ultimately the Supreme Court I believe will address the issue Canady said Ohio was the first state in 1995 to ban the partial birth abortion procedure In November a federal appeals court upheld a lower court finding that the law imposed unacceptable burdens on a woman s life health and right to choose an abortion Right to life supporters however don t consider Ohio s law as a legitimate partial birth abortion ban because it doesn t use the phrase partial birth abortion and not written in the constitutionally valid language of the federal bill While the House has more than enough votes to buck the president the Senate by most accounts is still three votes short of the two thirds majority
