WASHINGTON — Today, the narrow anti-abortion rights House majority of the 118th Congress voted on two anti-abortion bills: a bill that peddles misinformation about abortion to address a made-up problem, and a resolution that disingenuously condemns violence at anti-abortion facilities while ignoring the mounting violence and threats against people seeking health care and abortion providers. 

Despite voters’ overwhelming support for abortion rights during the 2022 midterm elections, extremists in House leadership chose to bring this legislation–some of the first bills considered in the 118th Congress–up for votes. 

Alexis McGill Johnson, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, released the following statement after the votes:  

“Today’s votes make clear what we have always known to be true: out-of-touch, anti-abortion politicians in the House do not care about the will of the American people, and will forever prioritize their dangerous political agenda over fundamental rights. They are using their razor-thin majority to fearmonger and stigmatize abortion, ignoring the clear message that voters delivered in November: they want to protect and expand reproductive health care and rights. 

“We are grateful to the abortion rights leaders in the Senate and the executive branch who will stop these bills from moving forward, and for all of the reproductive health champions in the House who spoke up and voted against these dangerous pieces of legislation. Extremists in the House should abandon their futile efforts to restrict their constituents’ rights and instead focus on the priorities of the American people.”
