Nance: “Democrats exalt aborting babies as the ultimate empowerment of a self-made life. God weeps.”
Washington D.C., – The U.S. House of Representatives will vote this week on a bill Democrats are calling the Women’s Health Protection Safety Act (H.R. 3755). This deceptive bill does nothing less than advance a culture of death by abortion in America. It aims to codify and expand Roe v. Wade, invalidating nearly every state restriction on protecting pregnant women and unborn children from abortion nationwide.
Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee, expressed outrage at the Democrat’s push for abortion on demand until birth:
“With this bill, the Democrat party has rejected every restraint on abortion. For them, aborting unborn children is nothing more than just another medical procedure. It’s a sick perspective that reflects the moral bankruptcy of their party, and it is infecting our country. Democrats exalt aborting babies as the ultimate empowerment of a self-made life. God weeps.
“Supporters of this tragic legislation want young women to believe having a baby is a cold calculation of convenience and capacity, not a unique life to be cared for and cherished. They are leading our culture to certain destruction.
“Concerned Women for America’s mighty prayer warriors are on our knees against the evil of abortion. We firmly believe in the power of prayer and action. You can rest assured that we will not only remain prayerful, but we will also hold our legislators accountable for this vote.”
Today, Concerned Women for America LAC sent a letter to Congress in strong opposition to the bill. Text of the letter can be viewed HERE. A fact sheet on H.R. 3755 can be found HERE.
