The House of Representatives voted to approve the Women's Health Protection Act on Friday morning, a sweeping bill that pro-life advocates warn would wipe away state pro-life laws across the country. The measure passed with a vote of 218 to 211, so now it's up to the Senate.
Melanie Israel, a research associate for the Devos Center of Religion and Civil Society at the Heritage Foundation, told CBN News the bill is an attempt to overturn health protections for women and the rights of unborn persons that have already been upheld by legislatures and courts.
"It's really meant to roll back existing policies, many of which have been on the books for many years, litigated all the way to the Supreme Court and deemed constitutional," she said. "The goal of this bill is to enshrine unfettered abortion access into federal law across the country and take away the American people's ability to have a say at all." Israel also wrote about it in a new report from Heritage saying it's a danger to pro-life efforts of any kind, even efforts to prevent eugenics and gendercide.
"The bill would prevent state protections for children from abortion based on their sex, race, or diagnosis of a genetic abnormality such as Down Syndrome—policies that, in the words of Justice Clarence Thomas, 'promote a State's compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics'," she wrote.
