Two “Aggressive” Abortion Bills Pass Through House

The U.S. House of Representatives passed two bills aimed at protecting abortion rights on Friday, exactly three weeks after the overturning of Roe v. Wade.

The Women’s Health Protection Act of 2022 passed mostly along party lines, with every House Republican and one Democrat — Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) — voting against it.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said the measure “is is strong, focused legislation to once again make the central protections of Roe v. Wade the law of the land.”

“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.

    Liberalism/leftism/democratism is a mental disease.

  2. Maria says:

    This country, especially politicians in Washington, need to take a refreshing course in the Constitution rather than “appease” the very small minority for political gain.

    1. Peter Hollyoake says:

      Try actually reading the Constitution. Nowhere is abortion or the right to one mentioned. While I agree in principle with Rowe Vs. Wade, it was decided by an ultra liberal majority who made up the law, not interpret it. Now people are whining because a conservative majority on the Supreme Court did the same. What’s sauce for the goose baby.

  3. Centurion says:

    Fortunately, it’s not likely these two bills will get past the Senate.

  4. Nick says:

    But then they can use this , as ridiculous as it is, to come down hard on conservatives just before midterms. The fed has no right to go over the states. Let each state work out how to deal with this.
    Oh by the way why don’t we have 50 governors telling is yes that is up to our state to legislate.

    I pray one day we can have a decent government that plays by the rules that made this country so great and lasting( at least until now).
