Congress

The Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA) of 2021, was re-introduced on June 8th, a rabid pro-abortion bill that would nullify all pro-life legal protection and codify abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy. The Act states:

 

A health care provider has a statutory right to provide abortion services, and may provide abortion services, and that provider’s patient has a corresponding right to receive such services, without a limitation or requirement that… impedes access to abortion services.
