Abortion proponents are pushing Montana to become a totally wide-open state for aborting preborn children.
As it had previously done in Maine, the American Civil Liberties Union filed suit asking the Montana court to rule that nurse practitioners and midwives – not just doctors and physician assistants – be allowed to perform abortions.
Gregg Trude, the state director for Right to Life of Montana, tells OneNewsNow that the ACLU is seeking totally unrestricted access to abortion.
“Montana has no restrictions, guidelines, or rules for clinic regulations on abortion as it is,” says Trude. “So here they are talking about allowing nurse practitioners [to perform abortions] with no thought of possible primary or secondary trauma.”
Trude lists examples of trauma documented by physicians at the abortion clinic in Billings, such as perforated uteruses and excessive bleeding.
Despite the fact that under the proposed law, Montana women would face such medical traumas without an attending physician, winning the court decision would just be another feather in the cap of abortion activists.
“I think people just need to understand that Planned Parenthood, ACLU, and NARAL have an agenda,” Trude declares, “and the agenda is to make it so women have total, complete access to abortion through 40 weeks of gestation.”
Montana already has an influx of underage girls from nearby states obtaining abortions and according to Trude, Montana doesn't need anything else to open the floodgates.
