Oppose National Abortion Bill, a Divisive Attack on Life and Human Dignity

For immediate release: February 25, 2022

Dear Senator: 

The Senate will soon consider H.R. 3755, the so-called “Women’s Health Protection Act of 2021.” This  legislation advances the false narrative that abortion on demand is health care, demonizes those who  recognize the scientific reality of human life in the womb, undermines religious freedom, and injects the  federal government into an area of state jurisdiction. We urge you to oppose this radical legislation. 

H.R. 3755 would override the judgment of every state legislature in America and impose a national  regime of abortion on demand up until the moment of birth. While the bill purports to address  abortion prior to “viability,” it cites a judicially-created “health” exception [Sec. 2(a)(2)] that  encompasses any kind of social or emotional circumstance to eviscerate any state limitation on abortion  after viability (effectively up until the moment of birth). 

This legislation would eliminate even the most modest and publicly-supported provisions like parental  notification laws [Sec. 2(a)(3)] and it would preempt application of the Religious Freedom Restoration  Act [Sec. 5(a)(1)] – a bill that was sponsored in the House by then-Rep. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), passed  the Senate by a vote of 97-3, and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton.  

While H.R. 3755 attributes good faith to late-term abortion practitioners [Sec. 2(a)(2)], it seeks to link  pro-life Americans to “systems of oppression . . . white supremacy, and anti-Black racism” [Sec. 2(a)(5)].  This inflammatory rhetoric is especially ironic when you consider that the largest abortion provider in  America has a history of targeting women in economically distressed communities and was founded by  an avowed eugenicist who wanted to eliminate “human weeds” from American civilization. Conversely,  pro-life Americans have established thousands of pregnancy care centers to provide compassionate  support to women and their babies, before and after they are born. 

The protection of human life is the first obligation of every level of government. As scientific  understanding of life in utero has advanced, it is appropriate for legislators to widen the circle of  protection for every American. It is also appropriate that these advances have coincided with enhanced  civil rights protections for people of every race, ethnicity and religion.  

Sadly, H.R. 3755 seeks to divide Americans along lines of race and gender, and intrudes into areas that  are not the appropriate domain of the federal government. Instead, we should be coming together in  common purpose to build upon scientific and societal achievements. We urge you to oppose H.R. 3755  and to pursue a respectful dialogue about protecting human life and dignity. 

Sincerely,
