U.S. House sends Equality Act to Senate Contact Your U.S. Senators about Equality Act Abortion Backdoor By ProLife Action Response Team | Right to Life of Michigan | Feb. 26, 2021 On Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 224 to 206 in favor of H.R. 5, the Equality Act. All Michigan Republicans in the U.S. House voted against the Equality Act, and all Democrats in Michigan (and across the entire country) voted for it. The bill now goes to the U.S. Senate for consideration. The bill’s wording could create a backdoor to protecting abortion under anti-discrimination law—being prolife would become sex discrimination. The Equality Act defines “sex” to include “pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition." Abortion could be defined as a medical condition related to pregnancy. The Equality Act does not include language to exclude abortion. The bill could override existing conscience protections for healthcare workers, allowing those who want abortions to sue prolife doctors and nurses for discriminating against them. States that don't fund abortion through their Medicaid programs could be open to legal challenges of "sex discrimination." Abortion discriminates against unborn children, and anti-discrimination legislation shouldn't be used to force people to discriminate against them. Take action--click HERE!
