(Worthy News) – The House passed two bills on Friday to codify the right to an abortion in federal law and to protect interstate travel to receive the procedure.
Democrats passed the Women’s Health Protection Act, which would supersede state abortion bans and guarantee access to the procedure, in a 219-210 vote. No Republicans supported the measure and Texas Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar voted against it as well, The Hill reported. The House approved the same bill last year but the Senate blocked its advancement twice.
Also clearing the House in a 223-205 vote on Friday was the Ensuring Access to Abortion Act, which aims to protect women who travel to another state to receive an abortion. This measure earned unanimous support from Democrats present and the votes of GOP Reps. Adam Kinzinger, Ill., Brian Fitzpatrick, Pa., and Fred Upton, Mich. [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
