The Leader’s Floor Lookout: Wednesday, January 11, 2023
Washington, January 11, 2023
Here’s what to watch for on the House Floor today:Republican Conference Vice Chair Mike Johnson’s legislation, H. Con. Res. 3, condemns the attacks on pro-life facilities, groups, and churches.Condemning Violence on Pro-Life Institutions Ever since the draft of the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision was leaked to the public, pro-life institutions, including crisis pregnancy centers, and churches, have been subjected to a recent uptick in violence and destruction. In communities across our country, crisis pregnancy centers are providing life-sustaining resources and education to pregnant women, infants, and families. Diapers, formula, access to safe housing, parenting, and newborn care classes are just some of the critical services provided by pro-life and religious organizations. Rather than supporting the organizations that are supporting our most vulnerable, Democrats and the Biden Administration are turning a blind eye to the violence targeting these places. It’s time for the House of Representatives to condemn this violence and put the needs of women and infants ahead of the outrage machine from far-left, pro-abortion activists.
Congresswoman Ann Wagner’s legislation, H.R. 26, the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, secures medical protections for babies that survive an attempted abortion. The Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act:Babies Born Alive Deserve Protection It’s time we pass legislation that protects the sanctity of life and safeguards the rights of the unborn.
Every single Member of Congress should be able to agree that newborn babies deserve protection regardless of the circumstances under which they are born.
