Women across the country will be up in arms when they find out what the Republicans have in store for them. It is not bad enough that they have been taking down Planned Parenthood clinics across the country with ridiculous restrictions. This time, the Republicans have gone too far, way too far.
The Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice is holding a hearing on a bill to ban all abortions – before women have a clue they are pregnant – at six weeks. Republicans are acting in spite of seven out of every 10 women believing in abortion. These legislators seem to have forgotten about the separation of church and state.
If this bill goes into law, abortion will not be an option at all. That means no abortions in the cases of rape, incest, danger to the mother’s health or life, and severe deformities such as a condition that leaves a child with virtually no brain.
Women across the country formed a resistance after Donald Trump took office. This will surely be at the top of their list for attention. If this bill passes, Republicans will try to ban birth control next.
State Communications Director for NARAL, James Owens, just tweeted this:
‘BREAKING: GOP announce hearing on bill to ban abortion at 6 weeks–before many women find out they’re pregnant.’
NARAL is a pro-choice organization, which fights to protect and expand reproductive freedom for all. Women and men across America are outraged. Here are some of their very best tweets:
