Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Westernjournal.com: “Liberal California Representative Makes Insane Suggestion for Military Bases in Pro-Life States”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Democratic Rep. Jackie Speier of California suggested Tuesday on the House floor that 128 U.S. military bases in states with abortion restrictions should be relocated to other states.

Speier spoke in front of a color-coded map of the United States indicating which states have taken action to restrict or ban abortion following the Supreme Court’s June ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization that overturned Roe v. Wade.

She was promoting the Access to Reproductive Care for Servicemembers Act, a bill she and Democratic Rep. Jason Crow of Colorado introduced that would “codify and expand access to abortion care for US servicemembers,” according to their news release Tuesday.

In her argument on the House floor, Speier said that under the new bill, the Department of Defense would be compelled to “pay any travel expenses associated with an abortion and ensure servicemembers are able to take leave for their care.”

The congresswoman said her office has been “inundated with outreach from former and current servicemembers who are anxious and despondent about being stationed in what they are referring to as ‘forced pregnancy states,'” according to a House transcript.
