U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, an outspoken pro-life advocate, issued the following statement after a bipartisan majority voted against the radically pro-abortion Women’s Health Protection Act.

"Tonight, the hard-left formally kicked the old slogan of ‘safe, legal, and rare’ to the curb and embraced extreme pro-abortion politics. This legislation will make Planned Parenthood's army of lobbyists happy, but it's going to alienate a lot of Americans. This pro-abortion extremism is completely out-of-touch with mainstream America. While Planned Parenthood, President Biden, and Speaker Pelosi embrace fringe pro-abortion politics, pro-lifers are offering a compassionate pro-baby, pro-woman, pro-science message."
