Hawaii Governor Josh Green Signs “Kill More Babies” Bill to Expand Abortions

Hawaii Gov. Josh Green signed an expansive pro-abortion bill Wednesday that allows non-doctors to perform life-destroying abortions and excludes parents from their underage daughter’s decision to abort her unborn child.

Green, a pro-abortion Democrat, said he signed state Senate Bill 1 to “reaffirm a woman’s right to choose” in Hawaii because of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling Dobbs v. Jackson, which overturned Roe v. Wade and allowed states to protect unborn babies from abortion again.

The legislation will “explicitly provide stronger, clearer protections for reproductive health care services, and increasing access to those services,” the governor wrote on Twitter.

Hawaii has very few restrictions on abortion, and 1,809 unborn babies were aborted in 2020, according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute.

The new law gets rid of a number of safety measures that protected mothers and unborn babies. Now, physician assistants may abort first-trimester unborn babies using abortion drugs or surgery, and abortions no longer must be done in hospitals or medical clinics. That means abortion drugs may be sold through the mail or telemedicine without the pregnant mother ever having any direct contact with a medical professional.

Additionally, the law allows underage girls to have abortions without their parents’ knowledge or consent, and protects abortionists from prosecution.

Democrats control the state legislature, and the bill passed by a strong majority in both houses.

During the bill signing ceremony, state Sen. Joy San Buenaventura, D-Puna, welcomed out-of-state abortionists to come to Hawaii to practice and described them as “noble” for their life-destroying work, according to Fox News.

“To those noble physicians, I say, ‘E Komo Mai. Hawaii welcomes you,’” San Buenaventura said. “Because today Hawaii has shown that we will stand by our medical providers, that we will stand with our physicians, and that those who provide safe abortion and contraception — even if it’s just to offer advice to tourists — will not have to fear arrest, extradition, subpoena.”

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that abortion is not a right in the Dobbs case last summer, and 14 states now protect unborn babies by banning or strictly limiting abortion.

Many Republican-led states are working to pass pro-life legislation or battling in court to defend their laws that protect unborn babies. They also are expanding support services and medical care for pregnant and parenting mothers.

But Democrat-led states have been moving in the opposite direction, working aggressively to expand abortions through legislation and taxpayer funding. Many of these states now allow nurse practitioners and midwives to abort unborn babies, and force taxpayers to fund elective, life-destroying abortions.

For almost 50 years under Roe v. Wade, approximately 63 million unborn babies were killed in abortions, including nearly 1 million annually in recent years. Now, with Roe gone, abortion facilities are closing and more women are choosing life for their unborn babies.
