House Democrats Plan Vote Protecting Abortion On Demand

No matter what the polls say, having the Democrat controlled House focus on federal plans to keep abortion on demand legal, easy to obtain, and with no restrictions might not play well with voters, especially with the economy (and Joe’s approval rating) in free fall

With Roe Under Threat, House Plans to Vote on Bill to Counter Abortion Curbs

House Democrats plan on Friday to push through broad legislation to uphold abortion rights, taking urgent action after a major Supreme Court setback as they brace for a ruling next year that could further roll back access to abortion nationwide.

The House vote will be largely symbolic given that the bill, the Women’s Health Protection Act, has little chance of advancing because of Republican opposition in the Senate. But House Democrats’ decision to consider it reflects their view that the issue could resonate strongly in the midterm elections next year, particularly if female voters see the Supreme Court action as a threat to rights that many believed had been long settled.

Democrats moved swiftly to schedule action on the measure after the court refused this month to block a Texas law that prohibits most abortions after six weeks of gestation. It would guarantee the right to abortion through federal law, preempting hundreds of state laws governing the procedure around the country. Democrats argue that it would codify Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that established a constitutional right to abortion.

But, even if they could get it to pass, would it survive the numerous court challenges, since the Constitution does not specifically give the federal government the power to regulate abortion, meaning the 10th Amendment comes into play. There is, though, little chance that the infanticide bill would be brought up in the Senate, as all Republicans would vote no, and there are several Democrats who would vote no.

The Democrats’ strong push for the abortion rights measure reflects a changing political dynamic in the party. In the past, Democratic leaders were reluctant to emphasize measures such as the women’s health bill for fear of putting centrists in swing districts in a tough position and potentially alienating voters.

But as the ranks of centrist Democrats have shrunk, so have the numbers of lawmakers in the party who oppose abortion rights. Chu said she had found that her colleagues from competitive districts had been eager to sign onto the measure.

As the unhinged, hardcore Leftists have become dominant they are willing to push for more and more extreme stuff.

(Heritage) Supporters’ claims that the bill would simply “codify Roe v. Wade” are misleading and inaccurate. The bill would effectively repeal existing state laws, expressly prohibit future laws that regulate abortion and the abortion industry, and place at risk long-standing federal policies that reflect more than 40 years of bipartisan consensus. Since 1973, states have enacted more than 1,300 life-affirming policies—more than 500 in the past decade alone.

These laws have been enacted by policymakers duly elected by their constituents, and some have been litigated all the way to the Supreme Court and deemed constitutional. The WHPA simply ignores numerous long-standing laws protecting critical interests such as “protecting the integrity and ethics of the medical profession” and “regulating the medical profession in order to promote respect for life, including life of the unborn.”

The bill prohibits government entities from imposing any limitation or requirement that “expressly, effectively, implicitly, or as implemented singles out” and “impedes access to” abortion. The bill does not define what it means to “single out” abortion. The bill provides narrow exceptions if a requirement “significantly advances the safety of abortion services or the health of patients” and such safety “cannot be advanced by a less restrictive alternative measure.” However, the factors “a court may consider” in deciding whether a requirement “impedes access to abortion” include overly broad examples such as whether the limitation or requirement “interferes” with an abortion provider’s ability to perform an abortion and whether the limitation or requirement is “reasonably likely to directly or indirectly increase the cost of providing…or obtaining abortion services (including costs associated with travel, childcare, or time off work.)”

In other words, there would be no state policies allowed, including the regulation of abortion facilities, such as inspection and treating them the same as other medical facilities. It would disallow restrictions on abortion for sex, race, and diagnosis of abnormality, any sort of eugenics.

It would also prevent states from enacting policies that protect children after they can survive outside the womb—something that more than half of the states currently address. The bill disallows post-viability abortion restrictions if the abortion provider believes that continuing the pregnancy would “pose a risk to the pregnant patient’s life or health.” The term “health” is never defined in the bill and has been considered elsewhere, in courts and in states, to include factors like emotional health, age, and financial health.

So, let them die if born. As for health, the abortion fetishists believe it’s health when the woman just no longer cares and changes her mind.

It would also mostly do away with all religious objections, which could kill the bill if had any chance of passing the Senate. Too bad the House can’t be sued, since the 1st Amendment says “Congress shall pass no law…” in regards to religion. And this “women’s health” bill would essentially create taxpayer funded abortions for those who were too irresponsible to use birth control.

So, yeah, go ahead and pass it, show America just how extreme you are. Of course, if I’m being honest, the elected Republicans will mostly fail to take advantage of this during election season.

    No matter what people say about the right and Donald J. Trump the left has a serious issue within their own party.

    They just rebelled to remove 1 billion from Israel. A billion for the Iron Dome defense project which is 100 percent defensive and in no way attacks the Palestinians.

    Joe Biden in order to have any credibility with his party has to keep a very fractured coalition together and NOW.

    BLM IS REBELLING AGAINST VAX MANDATES.

    Progressives are refusing to vote if….. BLM is Rebelling against VAX mandates.
    Joe’s poll numbers are in the gutter and so is Kakklin Harris’s whom the Democrats are keeping HIDDEN. You know, Out of sight, Out of mind.

    Not only that but several unions have voiced anger over Vaccine Mandates because it says no vax no job but you can’t tell a union member he can’t work if he refuses to get a vaccine, because the sole function of a union is to protect jobs from everyone and everything.

    Again Folks everyone with half a brain knows that IF YOU ARE VACCINATED YOU ARE SAFE…Arent you?

    Well something hardly even reported was Duke University had a huge break out of covid cases 3 weeks ago(397 students) and of those sick…97.8 percent WERE VACCINATED STUDENTS. Didn’t hear much about that in the news did ya?

    The CORPORATE PRESS….IS RUN BY COMMUNISTS whose sole purpose now is to destroy America, because they honestly believe socialism which will hurtle head long into communism is better than a free country where you have a chance to become something.

    Yeah, with all our problems the democrats are voting on Abortion to kill even more people. That will sit well with about 10 percent of the voters….the other 90 percent are like WTF and much of our polling shows that the left is losing this abortion debate because of Covid, Afghanistan, and the economy. They only win within a fractured segment of their own base.

    Here’s the text of H.R.3755, including preventing:

    A prohibition on abortion after fetal viability when, in the good-faith medical judgment of the treating health care provider, continuation of the
    pregnancy would pose a risk to the pregnant patient’s life or health.

    A limitation on a health care provider’s
    ability to provide immediate abortion services when
    that health care provider believes, based on the
    good-faith medical judgment of the provider, that
    delay would pose a risk to the patient’s health.

    William Teach: having the Democrat controlled House focus on federal plans to keep abortion on demand legal, easy to obtain, and with no restrictions

    The bill allows restrictions on abortion post-viability, consistent with Supreme Court rulings on the matter.

    William Teach: But, even if they could get it to pass, would it survive the numerous court challenges, since the Constitution does not specifically give the federal government the power to regulate abortion, meaning the 10th Amendment comes into play.

    The Supreme Court ruled that abortion is a right under the Fourteenth Amendment. The Fourteen Amendment grants power to Congress to enforce its provisions.

    (3) to invoke Congressional authority, including the powers of Congress under the commerce clause of section 8 of article I of the Constitution of the United States, its powers under section 5 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States to enforce the provisions of section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment, and its powers under the necessary and proper clause of section 8 of article I of the Constitution of the United States.

    William Teach: In other words, there would be no state policies allowed, including the regulation of abortion facilities, such as inspection and treating them the same as other medical facilities.

    Actually, it states: “(6) A requirement or limitation concerning the physical plant, equipment, staffing, or hospital transfer arrangements of facilities where abortion services are provided, or the credentials or hospital privileges or status of personnel at such facilities, that is not imposed on facilities or the personnel of facilities where medically comparable procedures are performed.”

    In other words, the state can regulate, but can’t over-regulate to make it difficult for abortion providers to provide services.

      The left does not abide by SCOTUS RULINGS> Why should the right Zach? Why should anyone. Their is anarchy by both sides running rampant in the streets and in the houses of the people all across the land. You know you want civil war. You bask in favorable Supreme court rulings when it suits you and ignore them when it does not.

      I say pack the court with 20, nay a 100 liberal justices and just do away with America. WTF MATE. You know you want it. You know you covet communism. It oozes from Elwoods pours.

      Let in a 100 million illegals so and give them citizenship. Help I am near retiring and believe it or not, I’m moving to Ecuador where the people are really good and decent people who work hard. My family will not be here when the USA falls and it is literally months from collapse.

      Why you ask….Because China’s economy is a ponzi scheme and it will slow bleed. The only other organization in the world that is a greater ponzi scheme than Chian is the FED which must owe the US people 200 trillion by now.

        est1950: The left does not abide by SCOTUS RULINGS

        The vast majority of people on the political left and the political right abide by the law, including Supreme Court rulings. That doesn’t mean they necessarily agree with those rulings.

        est1950: You know you want civil war.

        No. Rather, we recognize the conservative principles as found in the Prudence Clause of the U.S. Declaration of Independence.

        Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

        What is wrong with you?

        We’re not even sure you know the meaning of “communism”.

        That aside, I don’t covet communism or even support it. In general, I DO support Western European type policies on healthcare, taxation, environmental regs, labor unions and regulated capitalism for the US.

        Do you believe/”feel” Israel, Germany, Sweden, the UK, Japan, etc are communist countries?

        According to experts the five communist nations on Earth are China, Cuba, Laos, Vietnam and North Korea.

        Best wishes on your new life in Ecuador. Rather than abandoning America, we’ll stick it out. America’s problems can be solved and the nation is unlikely to collapse within months.

          As for me. You can have America. I’m moving back to Ecuador where I am originally from. Bet you didn’t realize I was a Latino did ya?

          NO? That is because you are too busy calling me a white supremacist because I disagree with you.

    est1950: They (Dems) just rebelled to remove 1 billion from Israel.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The House overwhelming passed a bill Thursday to provide $1 billion for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system as Democrats moved to quash criticism from Republicans that their party is wavering in support of Israel.

    Democrats initially sought to put the Iron Dome funding in legislation this week to fund the government past Sept. 30, but removed it after some members of the caucus objected. Leadership moved quickly to instead provide the aid in a separate, stand-alone bill. It passed by a vote of 420-9.

    est1950: Duke University had a huge break out of covid cases 3 weeks ago (397 students) and of those sick…97.8 percent WERE VACCINATED STUDENTS.

    Do your own research! This was the first week of September. Duke University requires students, staff and faculty be vaccinated, resulting in 98% of students and 92% of staff being vaccinated, so of course most of the infected are vaccinated! In addition, Duke requires testing once per week, so they miss very few infections! Duke has over 52,000 faculty, staff and students yielding an overall infection rate of less than 1%.

    And since?

    (Sept 14) Duke University is loosening some campus COVID-19 restrictions after reporting a drop in cases on campus this week. Students and employees will no longer need to wear face masks outdoors, except at large outdoor events such as home football games Duke reported 28 cases among students and nine cases among faculty and staff over the past week, according to the university’s coronavirus case tracker.

    The downward trend comes after two weeks of tighter COVID-19 restrictions at Duke, including requiring masks indoors and outdoors and suspending indoor dining. Professors were also allowed to teach their undergraduate classes remotely for two weeks because so many students were absent due to isolation and quarantine.

    The university set the new rules after a surge of hundreds of cases among vaccinated students and said it would review them in two weeks.

    • est1950 says:

      It does not take any research by me since I cover girls sports which Includes college and especially the ACC for particular reasons to know that Duke was nearly 100 percent vaccinated.

      Learn to understand what is being said rather than losing your gawd dayum mind everytime someone says something about a vaccine.

      Do you not find it odd that 400 cases of Corona virus occured suddenly in the vaccinated?

      Of course you dont.

      ELWOOD CLAIMS: est1950: They (Dems) just rebelled to remove 1 billion from Israel.

      READ what I actually wrote: They just rebelled to remove 1 billion from Israel. A billion for the Iron Dome defense project which is 100 percent defensive and in no way attacks the Palestinians.

      Supporting documentation: An internal dispute within the ranks of the Democratic Party led on Tuesday to the removal of a provision granting $1 billion for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system from a key funding bill. The removal came after behind-the-scenes pressure from several progressive Democratic lawmakers.

      2 days ago · Progressive Democrats on Tuesday pressured the party to remove $1 billion for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system from a bill to keep the United States government funded.

      2 days ago · However, a provision in the Democratic bill to spend $1 billion funding Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile defense system infuriated progressive lawmakers. According to multiple congressional reporters, progressives told House Democratic leaders they would vote against the bill unless the money for Israel was removed.

      anti-Semitic Democrats demand removal of Iron Dome funding …

      Sep 21, 2021 · NEW: A little bit of drama with the Dem passage of the CR/ Debt ceiling in the House. A group of progressives have told leadership they will not vote for the bill if it includes $1b in funding for Israel’s Iron Dome. The flap has led to the Rules Committee to go into recess. — Ryan Nobles (@ryanobles) September 21, 2021

      NO matter the final vote, the fact is relevant. The progressive, Jew hating Loons on the left cannot stomach Israel.

      • Zachriel says:

        est1950: Do you not find it odd that 400 cases of Corona virus occured suddenly in the vaccinated?

        Not particularly. Vaccination is not 100%, and vaccination rates are woefully low, so the virus is still in wide circulation. However, the case rate is much lower than in unvaccinated populations.

        est1950: They just rebelled to remove 1 billion from Israel.

        Only 9 members voted against the bill, while 420 voted for the bill, so “they” is apparently a very small sliver of the House of Representatives.

        • Kye says:

          Do you not find it odd that 130,000 ballots just appeared at 2am?

          Not particularly. Election integrity is not 100%, and voting rates for the senile idiot were woefully low, so the ballots were stuffed as needed. However, the “steal” rate is much lower than we could have pulled off had people not been watching.

          They just rebelled to demand an audit of an obviously fraudulent election.

          Only a few thousand Trump supporters marched to stop the steal, while the 330 million other Americans ignored the stolen election, so “they” is apparently a very small sliver of the American electorate.

          All systems normal, the bullshit continues. Now go get your “vaccination” that does not stop the disease.
