Susan Collins is a pro-abortion politician, but she is not supporting the Democrat Party’s latest attempt to codify Roe v. Wade into federal law by ramming an abortion up-to-birth bill through Congress.
The Daily Wire reports:
On Wednesday, Majority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced that the Senate would vote on the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA). That act “would establish a right to abortion through all nine months of pregnancy in all 50 states,” National Review reported.
On Thursday, Collins told media reporters that she has serious concerns about the bill.
“It supersedes all other federal and state laws, including the conscience protections that are in the Affordable Care Act,” Collins lamented.
“It doesn’t protect the right of a Catholic hospital to not perform abortions. That right has been enshrined in law for a long time,” she also explained.
Schumer claimed, “Some are saying that this legislation would tell hospitals — certain religious hospitals — that they have to perform abortions.” He added, “That is simply not true. This bill simply gives providers the statutory right to provide abortion care without medically unnecessary restrictions. That’s plain and simple. So, this rumor is false.”
