Providing for consideration of the bill (H.R. 7) to prohibit taxpayer funded abortions.
Sets forth the rule for consideration of the bill (H.R. 7) to prohibit taxpayer funded abortions.
If you really cared about reducing abortions, you need to increase education and people's access to birth control. In 2011, abortions were lower than before Roe vs Wade. And this is before all the BS laws making it harder to have an abortion. Forcing people isn't going to get the outcome you want in this fight. Not funding planned parent (which provides birth control) is going to make it worse.
You may pass laws to restrict or limit abortion. However, that will do nothing to stop abortion. Women are entitled to safe healthcare. Women will die as a result. Religious views have no place in health care. My question to you: What are you going to do in order to adequately take care of these unwanted pregnancies? You are very interested in life before birth , however, the Republican Party is quick to cut social programs that support those unwanted pregnancies once they are born. Shame on you.
Please don't approve anything that will threaten women's healthcare, including planned parenthood. Our country is seriously divided already, any vote passed that would threaten our already fragile civil rights would be a tragic mistake for millions of men and women.
