At the same time the racial make up of the US is changing. Currently white children ( age 5 and under) are the minority.
Some are suggestion that the new abortion restrictions are because there is a fear ( mostly of Republicans) that minorities are becoming the majority. The thinking us that making abortion much more difficult to obtain will help to ensure more white children are born.
I think this sucks . Who cards who the majority is? And controlling the make up of the Country is disgusting.

Require doctors to give women a verbal description of the ultrasound, including an audible heartbeat, if available. (The bill notes, however, that a woman can refuse to view ultrasound images or listen to the sounds detected by a fetal heart monitor.)
• Compel abortion providers to tell patients that fetuses and embryos can feel pain, and that a woman who has an abortion increases her risk of breast cancer.
• Extend the waiting period for abortions to 48 hours instead of 24.
• Require doctors to tell patients seeking abortions in writing how much money they earn and how much income they would lose by not performing abortions.
• Eliminate "medical necessity" as a reason to waive the waiting period. Medical necessity had been defined as a medical condition that complicates the pregnancy so that it warrants an immediate abortion.
