Reintroduced Abortion Bill in Congress

Last week Wisconsin US Senator Democrat Tammy Baldwin reintroduced legislation to prohibit government restrictions on abortion. The bill would prohibit states from implementing restrictions on abortion earlier in pregnancy, such as waiting periods and mandatory ultrasounds. It would also ensure states can’t limit access to abortion later in pregnancy if it jeopardizes the life or health of the mother and protects out-of-state travel for an abortion.

Essentially what this bill would do is force every state, even those like Wisconsin, with an abortion ban in place, to allow abortion on demand. Baldwin says abortion is health care; she couldn’t be more wrong. Fortunately, this bill will die in the US House because right now pro-life Republicans have the majority there.
