Vice Chairman Johnson Leads Series of Republican Floor Speeches on the House Democrats’ Push for Abortion On Demand Until Birth

WASHINGTON, September 23, 2021 — United States Representative Mike Johnson (LA-04) led a series of Republican speeches Wednesday evening on the House floor regarding the House Democrats’ radical pro-abortion legislation.

“You’ll hear a lot tonight about the Democrats’ ‘Abortion on Demand Until Birth’ legislation… one of the darkest, most brazen, most extreme bills ever brought to this floor,” Johnson said in his opening remarks. “It would legalize on-demand abortion until birth. It would remove nearly all pro-life protections for the unborn. And, it would abolish laws that prevent even late term abortion. It is barbaric, and it must be stopped.” 

Representatives Ben Cline (VA), Glenn Grothman (WI), Blake Moore (UT), Jackie Walorski (IN), Jody Hice (GA), Vicky Hartzler (MO), Jake LaTurner (KS), Gary Palmer (AL), Brian Babin (TX), Mary Miller (IL), Andrew Clyde (GA), Lauren Boebert (CO), Burgess Owens (UT), Mike Kelly (PA), Jerry Carl (AL), Diana Harshbarger (TN), August Pfluger (TX), Fred Keller (PA), Michelle Fischbach (MN), Jodey Arrington (TX), and G.T. Thompson (PA) joined Representative Johnson to deliver remarks on the House floor last evening regarding the House Democrats’ push for abortion on demand until birth.

Congressman Johnson is the Vice Chairman of the House Republican Conference, a member of the House Judiciary and Armed Services Committees, and a former constitutional law litigator.
