Pro-abortion Radicals in US House Vote to codify Roe v Wade in Federal Law
On Friday, by a vote of 218 to 211, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act (H.R. 3755).
This bill is a blatant attempt by the pro-abortion majority in the House, led by Nancy Pelosi, to prevent the passage of any new pro-life laws and to nullify all current state laws that save unborn children’s lives.
The bill would also undo most previously enacted federal limits on abortion, including federal conscience protection laws and most, if not all, limits on government funding of abortion.
Virginia state laws that would be nullified include the Parental Consent law and Partial Birth Abortion ban.
“This dangerous bill would prevent the passage of new laws such as a pain capable unborn child protection act, dismemberment abortion ban, or a law that would protect babies who survive an abortion attempt. It would also mean we would not be allowed to restore Virginia’s life saving Women’s Right to Know informed consent law!” said Olivia Gans Turner, president of the Virginia Society for Human Life. “This bill that pretends to be concerned about women’s health care is nothing more than an effort to protect the abortion industry and its promoters. Women and their babies will pay the deadly high price”
All of Virginia’s Republican Congressmen voted against the bill, all the Democratic House Members voted for it.
Virginia Society for Human Life is the oldest state-wide pro-life organization in the nation with chapters throughout the Commonwealth supporting life issues and the Virginia affiliate of the National Right to Life Committee.
