(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) The Democrats’ latest rendition of their so-called Women’s Health Protection Act—an attempt to make abortion legal throughout the nation via legislation—has been quietly scrubbed of all language that suggested men can get pregnant, the Daily Caller reported.
Language regarding “reproductive justice” has also been removed from the bill as the Democrats attempt to make it more palatable to Republicans and the American public.
According to a previous draft of the bill, it would protect those with a “capacity for pregnancy” including “transgender men, non-binary individuals, those who identify with a different gender, and others.”
It also suggested that access to state-funded abortions is necessary to counteract larger systematic problems related to racism and sexism.
“Reproductive Justice seeks to address restrictions on reproductive health, including abortion, that perpetuate systems of oppression, lack of bodily autonomy, white supremacy, and anti-Black racism,” a previous version of the bill said.
The old version also suggested that pro-life politics includes brutalizing treatment of women, blacks, and indigenous people.
“This violent legacy has manifested in policies including enslavement, rape, and experimentation on Black women; forced sterilizations; medical experimentation on low-income women’s reproductive systems; and the forcible removal of Indigenous children,” it claimed.
According to Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-NY, the Senate will take up a vote on the bill in order to protect what he believes to be a right.
