Despite there being no issues with abortions based on gender or race occuring in the state, one legislator wants to ban them just in case.
In a remarkable vote, an anti-choice dominated House of Representatives failed to pass HR 3803, a bill that would have imposed a 20-week abortion ban on the District of Columbia.
The anti-choice group has released this year’s round of endorsments, and Amash’s name is missing.
The Republican senator is taking the lead on a doomed piece of senate legislation.
VAWA. PRENDA. Aderholt. What do all these words (and acronyms) have in common? They represent the escalating attacks on the health and rights of women of color, and immigrant women in particular.
While researching PRENDA, RH Reality Check reached out to Lila Rose’s PR representative with some questions about her video and the pending legislation. And we got… crickets.
A Republican Congressman comes out and admits that criminalizing women for obtaining an abortion would be just fine with him.
Not that anyone is surprised, but yes, Franks just wants to provoke a court challenge.
PRENDA was the legislative equivalent of a troll writing, “Have you considered that HALF of fetuses aborted are FEMALE?”, before high-fiving himself for finally achieving the rhetorical chops necessary to flunk high school composition.
There is a medical consensus on fetal pain, but it’s not the one Franks is pushing.
