Tuesday, the Senate Law and Justice Committee heard panels in support and in opposition SB 6612, a bill that would make it unlawful to provide an abortion simply on the fact that the baby was a different gender than what the mother wanted to give birth to. We’ve provided two videos of testimonies given that show a stark contrast in world view.
Michael Pauley, a resident from Snohomish, Washington, gave an excellent testimony in support of the bill:
Afterwards, the committee heard from Dr. Anuj Khattar, an abortion doctor and family care physician at Swedish Family Health. Senator Steve O’Ban asked Dr. Khattar if he would perform an abortion even if he was aware that the woman was requesting it simply because she was unsatisfied with the gender of the baby.

Regardless of where you stand on the issue of abortion, we must all come together to fight this reprehensible action against babies.
