In Context: Implications of H.R. 3755

Last week, we looked at the contrast between America's founding heritage and the subsequent vote on H.R. 3755 in this coming Monday's Senate schedule.

This week, we take a closer look at the implications of what that abortion bill would mean for pro-life policy in America.

The Virginia Society for Human Life notes, H.R. 3755 would establish abortion-on-demand in all 50 states, regardless of the status of Roe v. Wade.

Among the protective laws this legislation would nullify:
  • Nearly all federal limits on taxpayer funding of abortion;
  • Conscience protection laws allowing medical professionals to opt-out of providing abortions;
  • Requirements to provide women seeking abortion with specific information on their unborn child;
  • Laws providing reflection periods (waiting periods);
  • Laws requiring parental consent or notification for minors seeking an abortion;
  • Laws limiting the performance of abortions to licensed physicians;
  • Bans on elective abortion after 20 weeks when an unborn child is capable of feeling pain;
  • Requirements to provide women with information on alternatives to abortion;
  • Bans on the use of abortion as a method of sex selection, and abortions done based on a diagnosis of a disability, including Down Syndrome.
