The anti-choice leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives is moving full steam ahead this week with its extreme and broad "Stupak on Steroids" agenda
that could change women's access to abortion forever.
When it comes to pushing these bills, the anti-choice House leaders aren't letting the grass grow under their feet. Tomorrow, February 8
, the Judiciary Committee constitution subcommittee will hold a hearing on H.R.3, the "Stupak on Steroids" bill
. And on Wednesday, February 9
, the Energy and Commerce Committee will hold a hearing on H.R.358. That's right - that's two hearings on two anti-choice bills in two days.
Here's a side-by-side comparison of how these two bills attack a woman's right to choose:
Both H.R.3 and H.R.358 include anti-choice measures that were part of the Stupak-Pitts abortion-coverage
ban that Americans rejected during the debate over health-care reform. Both bills are extreme and open the door to more political interference in women's personal, private decisions.
