The Vermont House voted to pass a staggering bill that would allow abortion at any stage of pregnancy and for any reason whatsoever.

Critics say the legislation is more expansive of abortion rights than the extremist bills passed in New York and Virginia.

“Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry a pregnancy to term, give birth to a child, or to have an abortion,” the bill reads.

It passed by a vote of 106 to 36.

The bill would also strip unborn children of any rights or recognition of their personhood by the state.

“A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus shall not have independent rights under Vermont law,” it reads.

Republicans introduced several amendments to the bill, including one that would require women to receive an ultrasound before aborting their baby, but the objections were voted down by Democrats.

Another amendment would require minors to have parental consent before aborting a child — that was voted down as well.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review excoriated Democrats who support the law, saying it “makes a frightening statement about the Democratic Party’s increasingly extreme view of abortion rights.”

The bill goes to the Vermont Senate next, where Democrats hold a supermajority. Vermont Gov. Phil Scott has already indicated that he will sign the bill if it passes.
