Taking action on two of the most controversial pieces of legislation this session, Gov. Phil Scott has signed an unlimited abortion bill and vetoed a gun control bill.
Lawmakers should pass in the next legislative session a proposal for a Vermont Constitutional Amendment patterned after the abortion rights amendment giving parents the liberty to choose the appropriate education for their children.
An ideology that denies natural law’s order of nature is an ideology that can then deny this amendment to Vermont’s H.57 abortion bill: “The State of Vermont recognizes that a viable human fetus is a person under Vermont law.”
Gov. Phil Scott’s office has indicated that the governor will let a controversial abortion rights bill become law, but how he goes about it has become a hot topic for abortion proponents and pro-life groups alike.

Democrats claimed the abortion ban is sentencing women to death. “Alabama’s law won’t stop abortion, but it will kill women,” Democratic California Rep. Harley Rouda wrote on Twitter.
Luckily, we have two more stages in this constitutional amendment process — another legislative round in 2021, and a full-fledged referendum to the public if the legislation passes a second time. Time to start talking to our neighbors.

Kansas wishes to ignore fetal personhood in the name of women’s second-trimester abortions, no matter how much the babies suffer. Vermont seeks to blindly do the same, through the third trimester and delivery. But not all Americans are blind.
The state’s largest hospital on Thursday sent employees a letter describing its new abortion policy and its support for a constitutional amendment enshrining the unlimited right to abortion.
We must end our societal schism of treating that thing in the womb as both precious gift and pesky, unwanted nothingness. But also at issue is what rights health professionals possess to be disassociated from such procedures.
