“Biden Democrats’ anti-life, anti-democracy attack on Texas and other pro-life states proves how out of touch they are with the American people,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The Texas Heartbeat Act is a response to fifty years of Supreme Court interference in states’ legitimate interest in protecting life and their right to debate and pass laws reflecting their people’s values. Biden, Pelosi and their radical allies want to permanently stifle that debate and impose abortion on demand up until the moment of birth, paid for by taxpayers.
“We are proud to endorse our friend and ally Senator James Lankford for re-election. He has proven his courage and dedication to unborn children and their mothers again and again. Most recently he has spearheaded the ongoing fight in the Senate to preserve the Hyde Amendment, longstanding policy that has saved nearly 2.5 million lives by keeping taxpayers out of the abortion business, from attack by pro-abortion Democrats.
“Nancy Pelosi, emboldened by Joe Biden, continues to work with her Democrat colleagues and the abortion industry in their relentless attempt to destroy the Hyde family of pro-life policies and cement a national mandate for abortion. This must be stopped. The American people rely on the Hyde family of policies to stop their tax dollars from funding gruesome, painful late abortions both at home and overseas.”
“We commend Governor Noem for taking this bold action that will save lives from dangerous chemical abortions, which have a fourfold higher rate of complications compared to surgical abortion. The Biden administration would turn every post office and pharmacy into an abortion center if they had their way, leaving women alone and at risk of severe heavy bleeding, physical, emotional, and psychological stress, and more. States must take action. Governor Noem is setting a courageous model today that we hope more state leaders across the nation will soon follow.”
“The deceptively named ‘Women’s Health Protection Act’ should really be called the ‘National Abortion on Demand Act.’ Existing laws at risk if the legislation passes include limits on late-term abortions, waiting periods, informed consent laws, and limits on discriminatory abortions, and many others.
“Washington Democrats are out of touch with the majority of Americans who want to follow the science and humanize our extreme and outdated abortion laws – not make them even more extreme.”
The American people are hungry to finally let this debate play out across the country and be given the opportunity to catch our laws up with compassion for women and children and science. After nearly 50 years of suppression, we are hopeful that the Supreme Court will soon afford Americans the opportunity to finally let their voices be heard on the greatest human rights issue of our day.”
