The U.S. Senate on Monday is scheduled to vote on a bill that would nullify state restrictions on abortion and permit unborn children to be killed even up to the moment of their birth, for any reason.
Titled the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA), the measure would radically reshape abortion law in the United States, regardless of whether or not the Supreme Court later this year overturns the landmark decisions that effectively legalized abortion-on-demand nationwide nearly 50 years ago.
“This is the most extreme piece of abortion legislation to ever receive a vote in the U.S. Senate,” says Michael Warsaw, chairman of the board and chief executive officer of the EWTN Global Catholic Network, writing in the National Catholic Register, where he is the publisher.
“This bill would nullify every single state law regulating abortion. That includes state laws that limit painful late-term abortions and laws that prohibit abortions from being performed because of the race, sex or condition of the child. It would even end basic informed-consent laws that ensure that mothers have all the relevant information before choosing an abortion," Warsaw writes.
