Congressional Democrats Hold 5 Hearings in 7 days & Push for 4th Vote on Failed “Abortion on Demand Act”
Washington, D.C. – Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America today slammed Democrats’ extreme abortion agenda including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s call for another vote on H.R. 8296, the Women’s Health Protection Act, legislation better known as the Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act. New national polling conducted by this month by OnMessage Inc. and released today by SBA Pro-Life America finds the bill’s provisions are deeply unpopular:
- 70% of voters oppose abortion without restrictions, including majorities of both pro-choice and pro-life voters.
- 63% of voters disapprove of legislation that would overturn nearly all state-level prohibition on abortion, even limits on late-terms abortion.
Reflecting on the poll, SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser offered the following comment:
“Pro-abortion Democrats are dramatically out of touch with a majority of Americans who reject abortion extremism. Already in this new Dobbs era, more than a dozen states have implemented life-saving protections for unborn children and their mothers. Yet Democrats and the abortion industry are spreading fear and lies about the Dobbs decision to push their unpopular, unsafe agenda – including the deceptively named Women’s Health Protection Act. This legislation, which has already failed three times, would enshrine a virtually unlimited ‘right’ to abortion in federal law and block new and existing pro-life laws.”
The U.S. House will vote on the legislation this morning, following a week of hearings in both chambers led by pro-abortion Democrats to push their agenda, as well as Senator Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) dangerous comments stoking violence against pro-life pregnancy centers. SBA Pro-Life America has documented more than 80 incidents of violence, vandalism and intimidation toward pro-life individuals and organizations, including pregnancy centers and houses of worship, since the leak of the Dobbs draft opinion.
Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America is a network of more than one million pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
