Rep. Chip Roy (TX-21) issued the following statement Thursday after voting against H.R. 8373.

“Today, House Democrats, and some Republicans, voted to once again go to war with people of faith — like the Little Sisters of the Poor — to force them to pay for contraception against their deeply held religious beliefs.

This bill isn’t about codifying a right, but weaponizing hysteria against Clarence Thomas in an attempt to salvage the November election and distract from Democrat failures.

This rushed legislation would overturn commonsense conscience laws to increase distribution of chemical abortion pills and other abortifacients through vague language and a hurried legislative process. I voted no.”
