Pro-Abortion Democrat March On Senate Chanting ‘’My Body – My Decision’’

A group of pro-abortion House Democrats marched on the Senate this Wednesday as the upper chamber got ready to vote on a bill legalizing abortion. It’s known as the Women’s Health Protection Act.

It will fail in the Senate but is being voted on to rally Dems for the mid-term elections in the middle of the leak of a draft Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade that would return abortion matters to the states.

Three dozen members got into the Senate Chamber, where they had to be shushed for applauding a speech by Sen. Patty Murray.

Below you can read an excerpt from Vox explainer:

The Women’s Health Protection Act would enshrine into federal law the right to access and perform an abortion, and it would supersede state laws on the issue. It would effectively neutralize laws in 19 states that have sought to severely curb access to abortion or ban it altogether.

Specifically, the act would bar six-week and 20-week bans on abortions. It would also prohibit policies, like ultrasound requirements and waiting periods, that attempt to make it more burdensome to obtain an abortion. The legislation’s text makes it clear that it’s a direct response to what the bill’s sponsors say are more than 500 state and local laws limiting abortion access implemented in some way since 2011.

Such restrictions have disproportionately harmed low-income people — particularly Black and Hispanic people — who are already less likely to have health care coverage for abortions, and who face more obstacles accessing alternative options if their states erect barriers.

While the WHPA would provide sweeping abortion protections, it wouldn’t supersede laws addressing insurance coverage for abortions. There have been strict limits on Medicaid coverage of abortions because of the Hyde Amendment’s restrictions on the use of federal funding for such health care. Democrats had hoped to get rid of the rule, which typically hitches a ride on appropriations legislation, but couldn’t get the Republican votes they needed to do so.
