U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, author of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, issued the following statement in response to the House passing the Women’s Health Protection Act, one of the most aggressive pro-abortion bills to date.

“Today, Speaker Pelosi’s House passed the most aggressive pro-abortion bill ever. Democrats used to talk about ‘safe, legal, and rare' but now — in a move that’s wildly out of touch with public opinion — they’re endorsing virtually-limitless, on-demand abortion through all nine months of pregnancy and they’re overruling any state-level restrictions to the contrary. Speaker Pelosi isn’t protecting Roe, she’s dramatically expanding Roe to help the abortion industry’s bottom line. These scorched-earth tactics are dead on arrival in the Senate.”
