Yesterday I was proud to join with @RepJayapal (left) and @aijenpoo to discuss the Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, which we will introduce to guarantee domestic workers the dignity, benefits, and legal protections they deserve. From U.S. Senate Office of Kamala Harris. Via Wikimedia Commons.

Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal is now asking the Senate to change its rules so it can codify Roe vs. Wade into law without Republicans getting in the way.

As The Daily Wire reports:

Since Senate Democrats managed to get to 50 seats in the 2020 election, many progressives have called upon lawmakers to nix the filibuster — which sets a 60-vote threshold for passing legislation. Indeed, the rule has inhibited several key Democratic agenda items — including bills to assert federal control over elections and extend federal power over nondiscrimination laws in cases related to self-identified LGBT individuals.

On Monday, Jayapal added to those calls — suggesting an end to the filibuster in order to federalize abortion law.

The Women’s Health Protection Act aligns with the Biden administration’s promise to codify Roe v. Wade — the 1973 case in which the Supreme Court claimed that abortion is protected under the Fourteenth Amendment. According to a press release from Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), the legislation — which already passed the House of Representatives — would “guarantee equal access to abortion everywhere… free from medically unnecessary restrictions that interfere with a patient’s individual choice or the provider-patient relationship.”

Among other state-level actions, Baldwin’s release noted an attempt to ban abortion completely in Oklahoma. The ministers and activists behind this effort explained to The Daily Wire that Jayapal’s argument tips the Democrats’ hand — specifically, by admitting that there is no right to abortion to which state governments are obligated to heed.

Jayapal’s has long been one of the far-left and radical Democrats in the House of Representatives.

A question to ask all these pro-abortion people is this. If Roe is overturned and the issue is to be determined by each state and there are still several states that allow abortion on demand, then what the hell do you care about the other states that will not permit abortions or restrict them? Is it money and the loss thereof that concerns you and your friends?

No. They are NOT “Pro Choice”, they are pro death. They are Eugenicists. They want population reduction world wide. Eventually they will want women to get Govt. permission to have children.

Too bad Jayapal’s mom didn’t think like her.
