Republican Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte has signed three pro-life bills into law, a major victory for anti-abortion advocates.
The three bills ban abortions after 20 weeks (when an unborn child can feel pain), require an ultrasound to be offered prior to an abortion and mandate that abortion drugs need to be administered in person, stipulating that women desiring an abortion engage in a medical consultation prior to being given drugs to end a pregnancy.
“Life is precious and ought to be protected,” Gianforte tweeted Monday.
“Today, I proudly signed into law bills to protect the life of our most vulnerable, the unborn.”
