Democrats Quietly Scrub Abortion Bill Language Saying Men Can Get Pregnant

The latest version of the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA), which would effectively make abortion a statutory right, scrubbed references to transgender and nonbinary people’s pregnancies as well as language related to “reproductive justice.”

Earlier versions of the bill used language tying race and transgenderism to the issue of abortion in its non-binding “Findings” section. Democratic Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, the bill’s sponsor, told Politico the language had been removed from the bill due to objections from some Democrats.

Hispanic Catholics in Arizona and Nevada Urged to Hold Democrat Senators Accountable over Recent Vote in Favor of Radical Abortion Bill

CatholicVote launched a six-figure digital ad campaign Wednesday, in both Arizona and Nevada, that urges Hispanic voters to hold accountable so-called “Catholic” Democrat Senators Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) over their recent votes in the U.S. Senate to advance a radical abortion bill that would have overridden state pro-life laws.

Arizona’s Kelly and Nevada’s Cortez Masto both voted with all Democrat U.S. senators, save for Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), in favor of what Democrats dubbed the Women’s Health Protection Act, legislation that would have embedded abortion on demand, at any time during pregnancy, into federal law, making invalid most individual state pro-life laws.

Texas Bill Banning Abortion If Roe Is Overturned Heads to Governor’s Desk

Baby sleeping

The Texas state Senate has sent a bill banning abortion if Roe v. Wade is overturned to the pro-life governor’s desk for signing.

The Human Life Protection Act of 2021 is a trigger bill that would ban abortion if the United States Supreme Court overturns the landmark decision Roe v. Wade. The court announced in mid May that it had agreed to take up a major Mississippi abortion case that could directly challenge Roe v. Wade, sparking hope in pro-life advocates and fear among abortion proponents.

Under the Texas trigger bill, which the Senate voted to send to Republican Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk Tuesday night, doctors or individuals attempting to perform abortions would face a second degree felony, and if the unborn baby died “as a result of the offense,” the penalty would increase to a first degree felony with the potential of a life sentence.
