into law last month.A biological father will not have to pay anything if the mother has an abortion without his consent, unless the abortion is medically necessary to keep the mother alive or if the pregnancy was the result of incest orrape. If a man disputes paternity, he would not pay anything until paternity is established.
The bill’s chief sponsor, Republican state Rep. Brady Brammer, told The Associated Press the bill was not intended to lower the number ofabortions, but he said that could be a result. He said he was frustrated with the number of anti-abortion bills and wanted to do something to make it easier to bring babies into the world.
“We want to help people and actually be pro-life in how we do it as opposed to anti-abortion,” Brammer said. “One of the ways to help with that was to help the burden of pregnancy be decreased.”Anti-abortion groups praised the bill.“Anything we can do to support women in these circumstances will help them be able to give birth to their babies, feel good about that choice, and feel supported along the way,” said Merrilee Boyack, chairman of the Abortion-Free Utah coalition. headtopics.comRead more: WebMD »
