Congressman Bob Good (R-VA) issued the following statement in response to his votes against H.R. 8296, the so-called Women’s Health Protection Act and H.R. 8297, the so-called Ensuring Access to Abortion Act.

“This week Democrats proved why there is no longer any political middle ground available on the issue of life. In response to the Dobbs v. Jackson Supreme Court ruling, the Party of Death once again voted in lockstep for the most extreme pro-abortion bills on the House floor. The Democrats voted to allow unlimited abortions nationwide up until the moment of birth and to override state laws that protect life. The Democrats also voted to undermine state laws that hold sexual abusers accountable. Republicans must recognize that there are no compromise votes in the Democrat Party in support of life.

“By contrast this week, my Discharge Petition to force a House vote on the Life at Conception Act received its 100th signature. The Life at Conception Act does two things. First, it recognizes the scientifically undisputed fact that human life begins at conception. Second, it finds that as a matter of federal law, the 14th Amendment guarantees the right to life for every human being without regard for whether they have yet been born.

“It is not enough to say you are pro-life. It is not enough to vote against the radical Democrat bill. The reversal of Roe v. Wade demands Republicans to boldly stand up and be counted as the party that will protect life from conception.”

Congressman Good is also the lead sponsor of H.R. 5136, the Teleabortion Prevention Act.  This bill will make the performance of a chemical abortion by healthcare providers a federal offense, if they do not first conduct a physical examination, are present during the chemical abortion, and schedule an in-person follow-up visit for the patient.
