Delaware Legalizes Abortion Through All Nine Months Of Pregnancy

Fact checked
Delaware now allows abortion through all nine months of pregnancy

Delaware has caved in to pro-abortion activists by legalizing the ability to have an abortion through all nine months of a woman’s pregnancy. 

Governor John Carney signed a bill last week making it legal to kill an unborn baby – even if the woman is just days away from giving birth. reports: Proponents of the bill drafted it out of fear the Supreme Court might someday overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide.

“This is a reaction from the abortion lobby to President Trump winning, and Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation, and the anticipation of President Trump appointing additional Supreme Court justices,” Susan B. Anthony List spokeswoman Mallory Quigley told me.

The pro-life group spent nearly $100,000 to run radio ads and digital campaigns, send mail, and call constituents to encourage opposition to the bill.

While many states, including Delaware, have adopted more protections for unborn babies, the new law does away with all restrictions on abortion—including an existing parental consent law for minors and a 24-hour waiting period—until viability. The law defines viability as a likelihood to survive outside the womb without “extraordinary medical measures” and allows abortion past that point if an abortionist thinks the mother’s life or health is in danger.

Pro-abortion activists applauded the new law. Amanda Allen, a lawyer with the Center for Reproductive Rights, said it “will protect women’s access to critical reproductive health services in the face of threats at the federal level.”

But pro-life leaders see it as a regression to unmitigated abortion practices in the state.

“Delaware is headed backwards. This bill would open the floodgates to Gosnell-style ‘houses of horrors’ abortion clinics in Delaware,” RNC national Committeewoman Ellen Barrosse said in a statement last week, referencing convicted Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell.

Pro-lifers have recently pushed legislation protecting unborn babies after they are thought to feel pain, at about 20 weeks gestation. Tennessee, Ohio, and South Dakota all recently passed 20-week abortion bans. President Donald Trump has vowed to sign federal legislation banning abortion after 20 weeks if Congress approves it.

Meanwhile, other efforts to write abortion rights into state law failed this year in Connecticut and New Mexico. In Illinois, Gov. Bruce Rauner vowed to veto recently passed abortion-codifying legislation.


  1. This is absolutely gruesome. Abortion is wrong to begin with. THE LORD will soon bring his judgement upon this nation and all others that harm the innocents. WHAT would these Idiots in Delaware be thinking…

  2. Only the demented psychopaths could support the murder of the unborn infant. ” Psychopaths says Robert D. Hare of the University of British Columbia, can be charming but deadly. Their hallmark is a stunning lack of Conscience. Their game is self gratification at the other person’s expense. Many spend time in prison and mental institutions, but unfortunately many are unregonized and do not.”

  3. Does anyone know how to contact Governor John Carney? Maybe a few thousands phone calls flooding into his office daily voicing the concerns of us citizens would make a difference. We can’t continue to accept things, complain about them and then turn our heads as if it didn’t happen. Not on our watch! Please make your voice heard lovingly of course and pray. What seems to be horrific God will use to change a nation.
