It Should be Called the "Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act"

The founding principle of the United States is that Americans are guaranteed life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. House Democrats are stripping America’s most vulnerable citizens of the right to life by passing a bill with the erroneous title of the “Women’s Health Protection Act.” A better name for this legislation is the  “Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act.”

This extremist policy will create a national standard allowing abortions for any reason and at any stage of pregnancy, even up until birth. This includes discriminatory abortion on the basis of sex, race, and disability. Americans have long believed that all people are created equal. How can pro-abortion Democrats claim to support that fundamental, American, moral law and still justify abortions that directly discriminate against a child before he or she is even given a chance at life? Children with disabilities aren’t less than those born with normal abilities. Baby girls aren’t inherently less important than baby boys. And children of all races deserve the opportunity to succeed. Promoting abortion on demand for any reason is a sickening display of blatant discrimination. 

If passed by the Senate and signed into law, this bill will override pro-life laws in states like Arkansas and prohibit new legislation that would protect unborn children. This is federal government overreach at its worst. I can not emphasize enough how much I oppose this legislation. Every American deserves a chance at life. I will continue to be a voice for the voiceless and work towards policy that gives every unborn child the rights they can’t fight for themselves.
