Senator Cornyn: Schumer’s Radical Abortion-on-Demand Bill Still Has Bipartisan Opposition

“This radical pro-abortion bill that Senator Schumer has set for a vote on tomorrow allows for abortions at any point during a woman’s pregnancy up until the time of delivery.”

“As shocking as this legislation is, it’s not entirely new. It already failed to pass the Senate once this year. It couldn’t even earn the support of all 50 Democratic senators.”

“I simply do not agree that the American people want abortion laws in our country that put us on par with the Chinese Communist Party and North Korea, two of the world’s most aggressive human rights abusers.”

On Tuesday, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed Senate passage of his Supreme Court Police Parity Act and today’s doomed-to-fail vote on Democrats’ pro-abortion legislation. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below, and video can be found here.

“Last week, a liberal group launched an intimidation campaign against six members of the Supreme Court. It posted a map online with their home addresses and encouraged protestors to take their complaints straight to the Justices’ doorsteps.”

“Every single person in this chamber, especially our Democratic colleagues, should affirm that any demonstrations about this heated issue cannot threaten the safety of anyone – Supreme Court justices, pro-life advocates, or otherwise. This past weekend’s events have highlighted the need to better protect the Justices and their families. They deserve the protection that, at this moment, the Supreme Court Police are not able to provide.”

“Last week, Senator Coons, the Senator from Delaware, and I introduced a bill to increase protection for all nine justices and their families.”

“I’m glad this bill passed the Senate last night, and I hope our colleagues in the House will take it up and pass it in the coming days.”

“This radical pro-abortion bill that Senator Schumer has set for a vote on tomorrow allows for abortions at any point during a woman’s pregnancy up until the time of delivery. It does this by prohibiting states from protecting an unborn child’s right to life as long as one health care provider signs off that a pregnancy would pose a risk to the woman’s physical or mental health.”

“This extreme legislation would invalidate all state laws that limit abortions after 20 weeks of gestation. This wouldn’t just impact pro-life red states. This change is so radical that it would invalidate existing laws in blue states as well.”

“This bill would also invalidate laws that prevent abortion from being used as a method of sex selection.”

“This bill that the Majority Leader has teed up a vote on tomorrow would also invalidate conscience laws, which protect health care providers who have deeply held objections to abortion. Conscience laws are extremely common in 46 states, allowing individual health care providers to refuse to provide abortion services.”

“As shocking as this legislation is, it’s not entirely new. It already failed to pass the Senate once this year. It couldn’t even earn the support of all 50 Democratic senators.”

“I simply do not agree that the American people want abortion laws in our country that put us on par with the Chinese Communist Party and North Korea, two of the world’s most aggressive human rights abusers.”
