Pro-Life implications of the Paycheck Fairness Act, H.R. 7

Yesterday, April 15, the House of Representatives passed the Paycheck Fairness Act (H.R. 7) by a vote of 217-210. The bill was amended in Committee on March 24, 2021. The amended version contains pro-life concerns:

The bill would add to the Fair Labor Standards Act a definition of sex that can be argued to include abortion. The Committee on Education and Labor amended the bill to add to the Fair Labor Standards Act an expanded definition of sex that includes “pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition.” The term “related medical condition” has been identified by the courts and by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) as a coded reference to abortion.
