Southern Baptist agency warns ‘eugenics is real’ in Supreme Court brief about Down syndrome and abortion

"The SBC Ethics and Religious Commission filed a legal document Nov. 15 asking the [U.S. Supreme Court] not only to uphold a 2016 Indiana law criminalizing abortions performed for reasons of race, sex selection or 'diagnosis of Down syndrome or any other disability,' but to accept the case as an opportunity to overturn Roe v. Wade." - BNG News

"North Dakota has signed a new law prohibiting some abortions as soon as six weeks."

The New York Times reports that the measure, which is scheduled to take effect in August, will “ban nearly all abortions,” including “abortion once a fetal heartbeat is ‘detectable,’ which can be as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.” In addition, the law also would ban sex-selective abortions and abortions based on genetic defects, such as Down Syndrome.
