Two “Aggressive” Abortion Bills Pass Through House
ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY…
1940: Adolf Hitler orders preparations for the invasion of Britain (Operation Sea Lion).
“A woman’s health decisions are her own to make, not to be dictated by far-right politicians,” Pelosi continued. “[House Democrats] will continue fighting ferociously to defend Americans’ fundamental freedoms and ensure the central holdings of Roe v. Wade become the law of the land.”
Meanwhile, the Ensuring Access to Abortion Act of 2022 passed with three House Republicans voting in favor. The measure prohibits “the provision of interstate abortion services, and for other purposes,” according to its text.
Both bills now head to the Senate.
“Democrats are once again doubling down on their efforts to nationally enshrine abortion at the expense of democratically passed state laws, our Constitutional order, and the natural, pre-political right to one’s own life,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) told The Daily Wire.
Roy called the passage an “aggressive action” that is meant to “appease the most radical, profit-driven elements of the abortion industry.”
“It only strengthens the argument for federal action to protect this fundamental right for our unborn fellow Americans,” he said.
