At the urging of pro-abortion advocacy groups, the Democrats who hold majority control in the U.S. Senate are pushing forward a radical bill that would eliminate nearly all state and federal laws that in any way limit abortion.
The bill (S. 1696) is formally titled the “Women’s Health Protection Act,” but is more accurately described as the “Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act.” Among other things, it would invalidate state laws that place even minor limits on abortion, including waiting periods, ultrasound laws, regulations on abortion clinics, limitations on late abortions, and conscience protection laws. Language in the bill would also have the effect of requiring funding of abortion on demand in most if not all federal and state health programs, such as Medicaid.
On July 15, 2014, the Democrat-controlled Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on S. 1696, at which NRLC President Carol Tobias presented the case against the bill.
As of mid-July, 2014, the legislation has been cosponsored by 35 senators, all Democrats, which is nearly two-thirds of the majority party caucus in the U.S. Senate. In the House of Representatives, a companion bill, H.R. 3471, has been cosponsored by 125 Democrats.
