President Joe Biden and Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi (California Democrat) pledged to take action on Thursday after a new Texas law banning most abortions goes into effect.
Pelosi said in a statement that after the adjournment of the House of Representatives, a bill will be passed that will restrict states to restrict abortion opportunities.
Women’s Health Protection Act will “Health care providers are allowed to provide abortion services without restrictions or requirements, because these restrictions are more onerous than those imposed on medically comparable procedures, do not significantly promote reproductive health or the safety of abortion services, and make abortion services more difficult get.”
Late Wednesday, the Supreme Court refused to block Senate Bill 8 of the new Texas law, which triggered an angry statement from many Democrats.
Pelosi said the law “needs to be codified Rowe v. Wade“The Supreme Court’s ruling a few decades ago ruled that abortion is a constitutional right. She also said that the House of Representatives will vote and debate the pro-abortion bill written by Congressman Judy Zhu (California Democrat) and others.” Incorporate the reproductive health care of all women in the United States into the law”.
Abortion is the act of ending the life of an unborn baby.
Both Pelosi and Biden are Catholics who support abortion, which violates their religious beliefs. Catholic leaders considered refusing to be in communion with them because of their pro-abortion position, and Biden was refused to be in communion with them at least once.
Biden also condemned the Texas law on Thursday, describing it in a statement as an “unprecedented violation of women’s constitutional rights. Rowe v. WadeThis has been the law of this land for nearly fifty years. “
The law allows ordinary citizens to sue doctors who perform abortions after detecting the heartbeat of the fetus or anyone suspected of helping or abetting illegal abortions.
At the same time, state officials are prohibited from enforcing the law.
This unusual arrangement helped the law withstand the preliminary review of the U.S. Supreme Court. Most of them stated that it is not clear at this time the defendants in the lawsuits brought by abortion providers, including Texas Attorney General Ken. Paxton, “Whether we can or will seek to enforce Texas law against the applicant in a way that might allow us to intervene.”
Biden said: “Complete strangers will now have the right to participate in the most private and personal health decisions women face.”
Biden directed his gender policy committee and the White House Office of Legal Counsel to work hard to respond to the Supreme Court’s decision.
They will focus on whether the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Justice can take steps to “ensure that women in Texas have access to safe and legal abortions that are protected by law.” roe, And what legal tools do we have to protect women and providers from the strange plan of Texas to outsource law enforcement to private groups,” he said.
On the other hand, Republicans widely applauded the new law and the court rulings that kept it in effect.
“The Supreme Court just made the Texas anti-abortion law effective, saving countless innocent lives,” Senator Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said in a statement.
“Most Americans think that your abortion extremism is the radical position here-this common-sense law protects babies with heartbeats,” Rep. Ron Estes (R-Kan.) added.
