In a heated showdown on Capitol Hill, House Republicans flexed their muscle and scored a major win for the pro-life movement. The Republican-led House passed not one, but TWO anti-abortion measures just in time for the 51st annual March for Life in Washington D.C. And guess what? Not a single Democrat was on board! Shocking, right?

The first of these groundbreaking bills is HR 6918, also known as the “Supporting Pregnant and Parenting Women and Families Act”. This bad boy aims to stick it to the Department of Health and Human Services by making sure they can’t discriminate against pregnancy resource centers. That’s right, folks! It’s about time that these centers, which do the noble work of supporting women during one of the toughest moments of their lives, get the respect they deserve. Who’s with ’em? Oh right, just 214 Republicans, that’s who!
But wait, there’s more! The second bill, HR 6914, dubbed the “Pregnant Students Rights Act”, demands that colleges and universities give the lowdown to female students about their rights under Title IX if they find themselves expecting and decide to carry that baby to term. You heard that correctly – no more shoving these young women into the dark! And get this, not a single Democrat was on board with this common-sense measure. Can you believe it?
The Democrats, led by their fearless leader, want to undermine all these efforts. They don’t even want to give a little nod of support to these pregnancy centers that dole out love and care to women in need. Rep. Michelle Fischbach (R-MN), the mastermind behind the “Supporting Pregnant and Parenting Women and Families Act”, totally called out the Democrats on their nonsense. She’s right – these pregnancy centers are absolute rock stars, and it’s about time they get the recognition they deserve. Enough with the lies and inaccuracies from the left!
The Democrats just don’t get it. They’re out there spewing nonsense about how these pregnancy centers are a scam. Seriously? Rep. Fischbach shared a moving story of a constituent who turned her life around with the help of a pregnancy resource center. Without their support, she wouldn’t have her beautiful daughter, or a supportive husband, or even her master’s degree! You can’t make this stuff up, folks.
But the Democrats? They’re just shaking their heads, clueless about the amazing work these pregnancy centers do. And brace yourselves for this one – they had the gall to claim that these bills are all about banning abortion nationwide! How absurd! These bills have nothing to do with that, and Chairwoman of the Education and Workforce Committee Virginia Foxx (R-NC) set the record straight. These bills are about protecting life and supporting pregnant students, plain and simple. What’s so extreme about that?
The culture of life in our country is under attack, and we need to fight to preserve it. Thank goodness for the House Republicans, the real champions of life in this country. They’ve shown up for women, for babies, and for the future of our nation. Kudos to them for standing strong in the face of radical opposition and making sure these crucial bills passed with flying colors. Keep fighting the good fight, Republicans!
