Standing for Life at the S.1696 Senate Hearing

On Tuesday, Senate Democrats advanced a radical bill, deceptively titled the “Women’s Health Protection Act” (S.1696), which seeks to wipe out almost every pro-life law on the books, including those aimed at protecting women undergoing dangerous abortions and state limits on abortion after 20 weeks. 

Watch pro-life congressmen from the House and Senate standing up to the pro-abortion Senate and shedding light on the true nature of S.1696:

Diane Black (R-TN)

I strongly urge you to reconsider advancing S.1696 and any other effort that would undermine current laws that exist to protect the health and well-being of women and unborn children…” 

Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)

The Women’s Health Protection Act is grossly misnamed legislation that seeks to destroy common ground and defy the will of the American people.” 

Ted Cruz (R-TX)

The legislation this committee is considering is extreme legislation. It is legislation designed to force a radical view from Democrats in the Senate that abortion should be universally available, common, without limit, and paid for by the taxpayer.

Chuck Grassley (R-IA)

“These laws have saved lives. They’ve saved women from horrible, life-threatening procedures. They’ve saved babies. If the bill we’re discussing today, the Women’s Health Protection Act, were to become law, [those] laws would become invalidated.”

Lindsey Graham (R-SC)

“Medical encyclopedias… encourage parents to talk to the baby at 20 weeks, they can hear sounds, they react to your voice, they can hear your heart beat as a mother, they can hear your stomach growling, and they can react to loud noises.”

Orrin Hatch (R-UT)

“I don’t recall Congress ever passing a law that inhibits states from passing entire categories of laws simply because Congress says so…. Why is abortion so unique?”
