The U.S. House Voted On Abortion

Jul 15, 2022

Legislators in Congress are desperate to return America to the bloody reign of states being forced to allow abortion.

The U.S. House just passed two radical abortion bills: the Women's Health Protection Act of 2022 (HR 8296) and Ensuring Access to Abortion Act of 2022 (HR 8297). These bills, now headed to the Senate, are more radical than Roe v. Wade. Just one of these bills could erase all efforts in the courts and in state legislatures to protect innocent human life!

In addition, governors are facing incredible pressure and rapid-fire litigation regarding abortion. Fax members of the Senate and our state leaders to urge them to protect life and end abortion —Your Faith & Liberty team

Now there are at least five major pro-abortion bills that have already passed the U.S. House. They need only two more senators willing to discard the filibuster to become the law of the land.

The Women’s Health Protection Act states it will do all of the following:

Specifically, governments (including at the state level) may not limit a provider's ability to: 

  • Prescribe certain drugs.
  • Offer abortion services via telemedicine.
  • Immediately provide abortion services when the provider determines a delay risks the patient's health.

Furthermore, governments may not require a provider to:

  • Perform unnecessary medical procedures.
  • Provide medically inaccurate information.
  • Comply with credentialing or other conditions that do not apply to providers whose services are medically comparable to abortions.
  • Carry out all services connected to an abortion.

Abortion is not a constitutional right.

In 1973, the High Court invented a “right” to abortion. There is nothing in the Constitution declaring a right to kill innocent babies.  

There is nothing in the 14th Amendment about abortion or personal “privacy.” If anything, properly applying the 14th Amendment to abortion should protect the right to life of the child as a “person.” It states, “nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.”

In Dobbs, the U.S. Supreme Court correctly ruled that “Roe was egregiously wrong from the start.” However, if this bill is allowed to pass, it will make abortion permanent once again.  

We must fight to protect the lives of these precious children. Send faxes right away to block this bill and give these children a chance to grow, laugh, play and learn. And encourage the governors to Protect Life and End Abortion.

These bills are far outside the limited powers given to the federal government. No authority has been given to Congress to tell state legislatures and local governments how they will treat abortion providers.  

This is a desperate, last-ditch attempt by radicals on Capitol Hill to keep murdering innocent children. If they are successful, so many hard-fought state legislative limits on abortion providers will be erased. In addition, the victories approving three Justices under Trump will be rendered ineffective.

With Rule 14, the bills already passed in the House can be voted on at any moment in the Senate. There is no time to delay. Send your urgent fax to as many U.S. senators as possible to oppose this bill.

God cares deeply for these children even when they are still hidden from the rest of the world.

King David writes, “My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; and in Your book were all written the days that were ordained for me, when as yet there was not one of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!” (Ps. 139:15-17).

Join me in thinking about, praying for and acting on behalf of these little children.
