After a poor performance in the midterms and a humiliating mess Believe it or not, House Republicans are trying to overtake not just one two abortion-related measures in their very first week of home inspection.

On Monday, Republicans reintroduced the misleadingly titled “Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act,” which threatens medical providers with up to five years in prison if they fail to attempt to resuscitate supposedly “liveborn” babies after attempted abortions, even if the abortion was performed because of fatal fetal abnormalities . (Medical organizations indicate that one already exists Federal Law 2002 on the topic, and additional calculations are unnecessary. Even voters in ruby ​​red Montana declined an elective measure that would have forced physicians to provide care even nonviable infants against the will of the families.)

The second vote is a resolution Condemnation of threats against abortion pregnancy centers. (I’m not holding my breath for an actual solution force at abortion clinicsincluding the 2009 murder dr George Tiller and several more recent high-profile ones incidents from arson.)

In short, the GOP proposes solutions to problems that don’t exist, primarily to portray the Democrats as the extreme party when they vote no to these malicious measures.

Republican clowning has reached the point where Anti-abortion activist Nancy Mace (RS.C.) sounds like the voice of reason. “We didn’t learn anything from the midterms, whether we will work like this in the first week. Millions of women across the board were furious at the upset Roe v. calf,” morning star told Reporter Tuesday. “What we are doing this week is paying lip service to life. Nothing we do this week to protect life will ever make it through the Senate.”

Mace added that Republicans should work on it address Residues from rap kits and protect access to birth control. Ultimately, she said she would like a “more centrist direction” on abortion:

Nancy, almost 200 of your colleagues voted against Protection of the right to contraception thereafter roe fell. There will be no switch to the middle on their side, but you can switch parties at any time!

Republicans initially wanted three-take abortion joined votes after a memo of December 30, but decided to take a break from one of them – one that would have made the ban permanent Federal funding for abortion. What incredible restraint.

Don’t worry, more stupid votes are likely to come as anti-abortion groups want the House to pass a nationwide six-week ban priorities this year. in one Letter Heritage Foundation Presidents Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America and Americans United for Life, sent out in December, wrote that their wish list is “the bottom, not the top, of what we think of as a pro-life Majorities expect the House of Representatives.”

Planned Parenthood Action Fund (PPAF) President Alexis McGill Johnson called the GOP’s anti-abortion agenda “dangerous and unpopular” in a statement Monday.

“The actions of the House of Representatives will not go unnoticed by voters who overwhelmingly support access to abortion,” Johnson said. “The Midterms should have alerted anti-abortion politicians. It is high time they listened.” House Republicans start week one of Congress with 2 votes on abortion
