I Vote Pro-Life (woman holding sign)The governor of Maine is demonstrating her support for abortion in the state legislature.

A bill is before both houses of the legislature that would allow physician assistants and nurses to perform abortions.

Teresa Tumidajski of Maine Right to Life tells OneNewsNow pro-lifers are fighting against a bill that reduces the standard of care for women.

“And it’s important to realize,” she stresses, “that the majority of states right now require a physician --- only a physician --- to perform or commit an abortion, so that's roughly 70 percent of all states.”

Governor Janet Mills, who took office this year, introduced the bills and pro-lifers say she is proving just how pro-abortion she is.

“As a matter of fact,” the pro-lifer says of her governor, “she's one of the early founders of the women's lobby here in Maine, and our legislature has a majority of Democrats that support abortion in the House and the Senate."

Tumidajski says it appears the governor will sign the bill if it passes, unless Maine residents start making calls and sending emails to their elected representatives.
