Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Senate will vote on a bill – the so-called, Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA) – that, in their words, would codify the court’s decision in Roe v. Wade.  The House, which already passed a version of this bill this Congress, plans to hold another vote soon.  There’s just one problem: The WHPA goes well beyond Roe in ways that most Americans disagree with. 

The WHPA would also override nearly every state law on abortion made post-Roe, including:

  • Parental consent laws are supported by 70% of Americans.
  • A 24-hour waiting period that Americans support by a 41-point margin. 
  • Requiring abortionists to inform women of abortion alternatives, a provision Americans support by a 77-point margin.

Recent NRSC polling also backs up these numbers.  

Democrats are not trying to codify Roe.  They are trying to go much further than Roe and go well beyond where Americans are on this issue.  

Given the lack of accomplishments Democrats have, and the state of chaos that our economy and world are in, it’s no surprise that they are trying to change the subject from record gas prices and sky-high inflation.  But in typical fashion they are shooting themselves in the foot by going too far and will spend the next six months trying to sell the American people on a radical abortion agenda they do not want. 

This will backfire on Democrats.
