Arrogant Democrats Push New Bill to Eliminate EVERY Pro-Life Law on the Books
This must be nice, eh? So you are a politician and you want to turn back the clock on some law or another, so what do you do? Why write a bill that simply eliminates all at once every law you don’t like.
Seriously! What arrogance.
Few Americans are aware that a “Gosnell Prerogative Act” has been introduced in Congress. This bill would permit the grisliest abortion providers–like the now-convicted murderer, Kermit Gosnell–to set the standard of care for abortion.
Unsurprisingly, this bill is not actually called the “Gosnell Prerogative Act”–instead, S.1696 is deceptively titled the “Women’s Health Protection Act.” However, it is difficult to imagine a bill less protective of women and their unborn children.
In spite of court interference, we have made great strides in the enactment and defense of state legislation that regulates and limits abortions since Roe v. Wade, with approximately 160 laws enacted across the country between 2011 and 2013 alone.
Now, imagine the laws in 32 states requiring varying degrees of informed consent prior to an abortion invalidated overnight. Twenty laws prohibiting partial-birth abortion — gone. Twenty-nine state laws requiring abortion clinics to meet some degree of safety standards–gone. Other abortion bans, admitting privileges requirements, regulations on abortion-inducing drugs, ultrasound requirements, and limitations on the use of public funds and facilities for abortions and abortion training—all gone.
Imagine the vast majority of pro-life laws wiped out with the enactment of a single piece of federal legislation. That is the purpose behind S. 1696.
Unbelievable, isn’t it?
