    how does a law "ban[ning] abortions after 20 weeks except in a medical emergency" eliminate "exceptions for rape and incest."

    Where is the "thus"?

    If you insist on a "thus" in that sentence, it would fit between "emergency" and "eliminate(ing)."  Obviously, under this bill, rape and incest are not considered medical emergencies.  In legislation, if exceptions are not specifically enumerated, they are not part of the law and do not exist.  

    Did you actually want an answer to your question or did you have some other reason for asking?
