ABC News: House Passes Bill To Codify Roe

In related news, the House also passed a bill to codify abortion into federal law a few days ago.

ABC News:

“The House of Representatives on Friday passed two measures to restore abortion rights after the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade.

The action comes as Democrats ramp up their political messaging on abortion ahead of the November midterm elections, hoping the issue will drive voters to the ballot box to preserve the party’s majorities in Congress. …

The measure passed in a 219-to-210 vote. No Republicans voted in favor of the bill.

The Women’s Health Protection Act now goes to the Senate, where it previously failed to move forward after the House first passed it in September 2021. …”

Every single House Democrat also voted for that bill.

Every single House Republican voted against codifying Roe.

These back to back votes on abortion access, gay marriage and interracial marriage illustrate something important that is evident in the polling. These things aren’t separate issues.

Social liberals support and celebrate sodomy, gay marriage, interracial marriage, drug abuse, divorce, feminism, “trans,” abortion, illegal immigration, gun control and so on. The same people in Congress vote the same way on all of these issues. They are a package deal that rose and will fall together.

The Supreme Court ruled on interracial marriage in Loving v. Virginia in 1967. It ruled on abortion in Roe v. Wade in 1973. It took only five years for social liberals who were ascendant on the Supreme Court to advance from legalizing interracial marriage to abortion. It was a domino effect.

Democrats understand this which is why they are trying to simultaneously fortify abortion, interracial marriage and gay marriage in federal law. The people who passionately believe that mothers should have the right to kill their own offspring are “pro-choice” almost to a man on sodomy, gay marriage and interracial marriage. Those who are bothered by abortion (i.e., White evangelicals) are also significantly more likely to be bothered by other things like gay marriage and interracial marriage.

  1. It doesn’t matter what the constitution or SC says, the enemies will always find ways around it and put in their own rules to offset the rulings.

    • This is the question I keep asking myself on a whole host of legislation that has been passed. Under what authority does the congress claim to have the power to make decisions on these things?
      We collectively ignore the lawlessness of the lawmakers to maintain our momentary comforts, truly The Republic is dead.

  2. There is a connection between abortion and gay rights, the victims in both are to be children.

    I know, I know, I know, the Muslims and the Chinese and the Russians are all God awful.

  3. With all due respect, it appears your analysis on this was wrong. As evidenced by the vote today on the “Respect for Marriage Act”, 267-157, with 47 Republicans joining all 220 Democrats. It appears that sodomite marriage and child grooming/molestation is far more popular among Republican representatives than abortion.

    • Abortion is a litmus test issue in the GOP. There is a strong organized activist constituency built up around the issue which has a record of purging pro-choice Republicans in the primaries.

      Gay marriage and interracial marriage are not. There isn’t a comparable level of activism and organized opposition. The polls are about 70/30 on gay marriage, 94/6 on interracial marriage and 60/40 on abortion. The fact that 2/3rds of House Republicans voted against the bill shows that they are becoming more afraid of their base than the media

  4. How does this make sense?

    From a ‘muh Constitution’ point of view, note two things: 1) SCOTUS just ruled that there is no explicit or implied ‘right’ to abortion contained in the Constitution (i.e. at the federal level), and 2) the Constitution does explicitly say that any federal responsibilities/duties, which one can very reasonably extend to ‘rights’, not mentioned, or deemed to be present, as interpreted, in the Constitution, devolve to the states.

    So I don’t see how a federal law attempting to codify the ‘right’ to abortion could possibly withstand a test before the current SCOTUS.

    The action comes as Democrats ramp up their political messaging on abortion ahead of the November midterm elections, hoping the issue will drive voters to the ballot box to preserve the party’s majorities in Congress. …

    I see, it’s about ‘messaging’ — there is something very sick about that — there is something very sick about a party that wants to center its ‘messaging’ around a ‘right’ that, as just ruled, does not exist — I saw it said that ‘political correctness makes you stupid’ — you could also say that secular moral absolutism makes you stupid.

  5. “The struggle of our time is to concentrate, not to dissipate; to renew our association with traditional wisdom; to establish a vital connection between the individual and the race. It is, in a word, a struggle against Liberalism!” T.S Eliot.
