With a Republican majority in the House, Republicans have begun to pass pro-life measures despite objections from their counterparts.
The first act of House Democrats was a vote demanding legislation on abortion on demand in all 50 states. However, Republicans are committed to prioritizing the lives of the unborn, with their majority in the House.
Yet, the legislation would not limit abortion in any way, as the 15-week abortion ban proposed by Republicans would have.
Liberal media has begun to attack the House GOP for their legislation. The Washington Post reported, “House Republicans turn their attention to restricting abortion rights.”
Accordingly, the Guardian illustrates, “Republican-controlled House pushes for new abortion restrictions.” However, the measures would not seek to limit abortion in any way.
The first bill, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, would effectively mandate life-saving treatments for babies who survive abortions. In no way will the bill abate abortion.
Also, the legislation would criminalize the failure of abortionists to administer proper care for infants who are born alive.
The GOP believes that every baby is a precious life, however, their Democrat counterparts do not.
The second resolution by Republicans is a condemnation of the violent acts conducted nationwide against pregnancy centers, pro-life centers, churches, and other institutions.
The Federalist reports that the resolution urges the Biden administration and the Department of Justice to bring the perpetrators involved in attacking pro-life centers to justice.
Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA) inquired, “Who could be opposed to that?” However, 212 Democrats voted against the bills aforementioned, while all House Republicans voted in support of it.
Due to the striking down of Roe v. Wade, pro-life laws have saved more than 10,000 lives.
House Republicans just passed a resolution condemning the nationwide wave of violence, property damage, threats, trespassing, and intimidation against pro-life organizations.
