Council questions the mental health of a woman when it comes to allowing abortion

Opponents to Speaker Mike Flood’s bill making abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy illegal is being challenged by Senator Brenda Council of Omaha in the Judiciary committee.
“The mother’s mental health if it’s such that there is a real concern that she may take her own lifeĀ or physically impair herself we’re going to say you’re going to have to continue that pregnancy?”
Leslie Griffin of the University of Houston Law Center agrees with Senator council saying the bill does not follow the constitutional right of women.
