    The passing of this travesty into law on the heels of the protest marches is unacceptable. Freedom is not exclusive to males, it is a human right. Please do everything in your power to keep this from passing.

    STOP voting against the interest of your constituents. Support and expand the ACA. NO Devos, 100,000,000. Women marched for a reason - pay attention. We vote!!!

    You weren't elected to legislate morality. This won't stop abortion, but it will kill more women.

    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.

    Banning abortion does not eliminate abortions, it only eliminates SAFE abortions!

    A more-than-adequate law exists. Quit wasting time on non-issues for the goal of restricting abortion access. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyde_Amendment

    Removing or reducing funding for women's health services will lead to increased abortions, not fewer. Trust that women make the best decisions for their health, not government officials.

    Sir, you want small government - just small enough to fit into women's bodies?

    This is exactly the type of legislation we were protesting against last Saturday. Stop targeting women's healthcare and let us decide what to do with our bodies!

    Banning abortions do not stop abortions. Banning abortions stop safe abortions. Do not put women's lives at risk!

    You are not voting for women's best interests. I am not happy with you as our representative. If you're going to "represent" pay attention, we marched for a reason. :(

    Leave women's healthcare decisions to them and their doctors. You are not our doctor.

    Facilities such as Planned Parenthood, provide life saving services for those who can't afford it. I am a strong Christian but I believe women have rights to medical services such as abortions

    Please do not punish women. Reproductive rights are a fundamental right. We can not go backwards on this issue.

    Do not keep voting against women's health care. Abortions are health care.

    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.
