The House of Representatives passed a bill on Thursday that would prohibit states from limiting the possession and distribution of contraceptives and abortifacients, even if they have not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Democratic North Carolina Rep. Kathy Manning’s Right To Contraception Act passed mostly along party lines, 228-195. Only eight Republicans joined all 220 Democrats in supporting the legislation. GOP members led by Iowa Rep. Ashley Hinson proposed legislation that would make most forms of birth control available over-the-counter, but it failed a motion to recommit.
“Almost all women will use birth control at some point in their lives, and more than 96% of voters support access to birth control. Yet, the right to birth control is under attack by Republican lawmakers who are pushing disinformation about how contraceptives work,” Manning said in a floor speech. Source: Daily Caller
