Geee Posted July 16, 2014 Share Posted July 16, 2014 Heritage Foundation: A sweeping bill that could eliminate many commonsense state laws protecting women from the harms of abortion was considered in a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday. “Imagine the vast majority of pro-life laws wiped out with the enactment of a single piece of federal legislation. That is the purpose behind S. 1696,” summarizes Bill Saunders of Americans United for Life. The misleadingly named “Women’s Health Protection Act,” S. 1696, sponsored by Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., would do just the opposite of its euphemistic title. Effectively, it would strip states of the ability to protect the health and safety of women and defend the lives of unborn children. “[s. 1696] is an extraordinarily broad, blunt instrument that through its ranging words would substitute the special interests of the abortion industry for both the well-being of women and the value of human life,” Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., explained yesterday during testimony. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
