U.S. Bishops are calling the “Women’s Health Protection Act” the most unjust and extreme abortion bill the U.S. has ever seen.
Aborting unborn children is the opposite of healthcare, the U.S. Bishops declared Monday in a statement condemning the Women’s Health Protection Act as “the most unjust and extreme” abortion bill our nation has ever seen.
On Friday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Women’s Health Protection Act (H.R. 8296), a bill that would impose abortion-on-demand nationwide at any stage of pregnancy and would eliminate pro-life laws at every level of government.
In response to the vote, Baltimore Archbishop William Lori, chair of the bishops’ Committee on Pro-Life Activities, and New York Cardinal Timothy Dolan, chair of the Committee for Religious Liberty, have issued a joint statement on behalf of the bishops’ conference (USCCB) deploring the move.
“The majority in the House of Representatives voted last Friday to pass the most unjust and extreme abortion on demand bill our nation has ever seen,” the bishops write. “Answering the needs of women by promoting taxpayer-funded elective abortion, as this bill would do, is a grave evil and a failure to love and serve women.”
A flurry of U.S. Bishops have rallied behind San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, who has barred Nancy Pelosi from receiving Holy Communion because of her aggressive abortion advocacy. https://t.co/n1iEJpaz3b

The Democrats are all for abortion passing the bill without Republican help.
