A summary of Federal Government activity from July 1, 2019 to September 30, 2019

Ana Brennan, J.D.

 

As was to be expected, Congress did not accomplish much this summer and this includes a lack of action on abortion or any other life issue of concern. One thing to watch out for are appropriation bills where pro-abortion amendments to restore or expand abortion funding could possibly be sneaked in.

Except for remaining vigilant against abortion funding on the federal level, Congress has not done much. When it comes to pro-life legislative activity, the States are where it's at.
