A few weeks ago when the US House of Representatives passed a bill to restrict abortion to 20 weeks, I wrote a post wondering if they’d forgotten their alleged commitment to state’s rights.
But of course the vote by Washington State Republicans in Congress to restrict abortion rights beyond what Washington State voters rejected puts the lie to the state’s rights claim. They don’t care about Washington’s rights to write our own abortion laws, they want the big mean Federal government to override it.
Well now it’s the Senate’s turn as Marco Rubio has introduced a companion bill in the Senate. And while I doubt very much that even if it makes it to the floor, that our Senators would vote for it, it doesn’t hurt to contact them to let them know you’ve got their back in opposing it.
