House Republicans are pushing a bill that would ban abortion after 6 weeks of pregnancy. Because that is before many women even know they're pregnant, this would amount to a COMPLETE, FEDERAL BAN on abortion.
It is crucial that we lay down a firm marker in opposition to this piece of legislation before it gains traction. Please sign our petition to Congress saying you oppose this dangerous, unconstitutional, extreme ban on abortion.
The "Heartbeat Protection Act" requires doctors to check for a fetal heartbeat and if a heartbeat is detectable, the doctor would be prohibited from performing an abortion. The bill does not make exceptions for victims of rape or incest, and only allows for an exception if the pregnancy would endanger the woman’s life. The GOP is trying to make abortions illegal, plain and simple.
This is a direct attack on Roe v. Wade, and it's blatantly unconstitutional. We've got to stop it — but we need your help. Please sign our petition demanding that Congress halt this bill in its tracks >>>
Thanks for fighting,
