WASHINGTON — This week, the finally sworn-in, narrow anti-abortion rights House majority of the 118th Congress is expected to vote on a House rules package that paves the way for votes on three anti-abortion bills. This will be the first time members of the House vote on abortion since the 2022 midterm elections, when voters overwhelmingly turned out to support abortion rights.  

Alexis McGill Johnson, president of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, released the following statement ahead of the vote:  

The first order of business of the narrow anti-abortion rights majority in the House directly contradicts the clear message that voters delivered in November: to protect and expand reproductive health care and rights. Instead, the majority is pushing its dangerous and unpopular agenda forward, and making it clear that they will stop at nothing to take away our rights. Thankfully, abortion rights leaders in the Senate and executive branch can stop them. But the House’s actions will not go unnoticed to voters, who overwhelmingly support abortion access. The midterms should have put anti-abortion politicians on notice. It’s past time they listen.

The three anti-abortion bills aim to: expand the Hyde Amendment, with the ultimate goal of making the policy permanent, and enact other discriminatory restrictions on insurance coverage for abortion; peddle misinformation about abortion care to address a made-up problem; and disingenuously condemn violence at anti-abortion facilities while ignoring the mounting violence and threats against people who get abortions and abortion providers. 


Planned Parenthood Action Fund is an independent, nonpartisan, not-for-profit membership organization formed as the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The Action Fund engages in educational, advocacy, and limited electoral activity, including grassroots organizing, legislative advocacy, and voter education.
