surgical instruments 1Abortions in the state of Maine just became more dangerous and deadly thanks to the governor’s signature, warn pro-lifers.

Gov. Janet Mills has signed into law a measure that allows nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, and physician assistants to perform abortions.

 Mills, a first-term Democrat, introduced the bill herself, Fox News reported. 

A pro-abortion lawmaker called it "outdated" for states to require medical doctors to perform surgical abortions. 

Carroll Conley of the Christian Civic League of Maine says the new law is a sign of the times compared to past decades of the pro-abortion movement.

Conley, Carroll (Christian Civic League of Maine)“This is a situation that goes so much against the mantra that you would hear from the pro-abortion [movement], back in the '90s, that you want abortion to be ‘legal, safe and rare,’” he tells OneNewsnow. “And they've really pulled the curtain back. All they care about is that it's legal.”

The state’s action is likely a response to the difficulty in finding doctors willing to kill the unborn.

Conley says women seeking an abortion in Maine have another reason to fear the new law: lawmakers rejected health regulations for surgical rooms.

So pro-lifers argue that an abortion facility could be set up in Maine with shoddy practices, dirty instruments, with no oversight.
