U.S. House Passes Extreme Abortion Bill

Capitol With Flag

The U.S. House of Representatives voted last Friday to pass one of the most extreme abortion bills ever. The so-called Women's Protection Act, H.R. 3755, would allow abortion on demand at every stage of pregnancy, ban state and local pro-life laws, allow public funding of abortions, and would likely eliminate conscience protections for doctors who do not want to perform abortions. All Republicans present voted against the bill, while all but one Democrat present, Representative Henry Cuellar of Texas, voted for the bill. 

In a statement responding to the vote, Archbishop Joseph Naumann, Chairman of the USCCB Committee on Pro-Life Activities, called the bill "the most extreme pro-abortion bill our nation has ever seen... H.R. 3755 is built on a false and despairing narrative that utterly fails women," he said. Though the Senate is not expected to have enough votes to pass the bill, the House vote sets a bad precedent. If you haven't already contacted your legislators regarding these extreme bills, you can do so here.
