This has raised many eyebrows.
The leaked draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade by Justice Alito, has been widely condemned by Democrats. The Democratic party is currently trying to pass a bill that would allow for abortion through the nine months of pregnancy.
On Tuesday, Democratic senators were seen pushing for a vote on the Women’s Health Protection Act. The Act was passed last year after Texas and other Republican states started passing abortion laws with many restrictions.
Senator Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and others have been pushing for a vote in the upper chamber, however, that is unlikely to happen as they would need a 60 for the bill to be rehashed, which they can’t do with the 50-50 Democrat majority.
Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser noted the dangers of that legislation which she dubbed as “extreme” and “deeply unpopular.” This is why the bill did not pass the first time.
“Pro-abortion Democrats will stop at nothing – even threatening judges and destroying foundational American institutions – to impose their radical agenda nationwide,” Dannenfelser said in a statement to Fox News Digital on Wednesday. “The Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act would enshrine a virtually unlimited abortion ‘right’ in federal law and block common ground pro-life laws around the country, including limits on late-term abortions when unborn babies feel pain, bans on lethal discrimination abortions, and many more.”
“It failed in the Senate once already this year because it is extreme and deeply unpopular. The overwhelming majority of Americans support limits on abortion, but Biden-Schumer Democrats who call abortion ‘sacred’ want to block them,” she added. “The stakes of the Dobbs decision and midterm elections are higher than ever for countless unborn children, their mothers, and America.”
“While the abortion lobby led by Planned Parenthood spends $150 million to elect pro-abortion Democrats, our pro-life ground team is working to reach eight million battleground-state voters at their homes to educate them and hold extremists accountable,” she further noted
