    My representative is a Putin-owned piece of shit for Cult45.  

    Noted, scumbag.

    Republican fascism threatens everyone, and everything that matters.

    Hopefully, the senate will also pass this bill.  Women's reproductive rights need to be protected.

    My body, my choice. I disagree with any legislation that infringes on a woman's autonomy over her own body.

    Sadly, I do not have representation in Congress. They oppose bills that I support. Their NAY votes are political statements instead of doing their jobs to help our country and their constituents. We need more people to vote and to vote Blue. It's time to stop Re-electing GOP incumbents!  Voter term limits!

    This bill will not pass in the senate. It's a positive gesture but that is all. 
    President Biden must increase the Supreme Court from 9 to 13. The plutocrats  are using the Judiciary to rid this country from Democracy. Dictatorships represent the minority and they are taking over. Senators From NY, NJ, CT, Massachusetts do the right thing and demand the addition of 4 before it's to late.

    My Rep voted for and it will passed the House. The real test is can it pass the Senate?

    Once again Rep. Conor Lamb shows that he stands up for women's rights, and I'm happy to see that.

     

    I wish this had a chance in the broken Senate.

    I think that Bergman should have a vasectomy.  Why in the world would he be allowed to make personal decisions like carrying a baby to term for the women of the State of Michigan.  Insane! None of his buisness.

    An unborn person (i.e. fetus) is a separate being with a right to life and liberty. No one, not even the mother nor her doctor ought to have the legal right to, with no valid reason, kill an innocent unborn person. Such a heinous act ought to be considered as premeditated murder and charged as such. Congress, whose sole purpose is to uphold and defend the Constitution should be codifying the legal protection of the innocent, not the protection the murder. I think Congress should amend the 14th Amendment of our Constitution to include those still within the womb. After all, our natural rights are with us from womb to tomb!

    Are the Republicans purposely trying to piss off voters that otherwise might have voted for them?  They've already lost a lot of women (and men) with their support of Roe v Wade being overturned.  They have obviously lost the LGBTQ community   Now by voting against the VA bill, that they passed in June, they will lose many veterans.  And they wonder why the military has trouble getting recruits!  Now you have J D Vance saying women should stay in abusive marraiges?? And Mastrioni running for Governor of Pennsylvania putting out anti-Semetic ads.  Can Republican politicians sink any lower?  Have they no shame???

    I don't think senator Lamborne should discount a woman's right to abortion.  I appreciate that he has religious objections, that is his right.  But his faith may not be the same as those he represents.

    Kudos to my rep Josh Harder for voting FOR this bill. I agree with what another commenter said... if men got pregnant, abortion would be a sacrament. When it comes to rights, some decisions may be murky, but they become clearer when the shoe is on the other foot.

    Thisis one more reason the Fighting 49th L.D. needs to stand up against the GOP misinformation, and keep preventing the GOP from destroying Democracy.  I am deeply dissappointed in Jaime Herrera Beutler's vote.  But its expected, and that is why here in the 49th L.D. of Clark County, WA she needs to go.  Here a plea to the DCCC we need tons of money to push this radical Trump Supporter out of Office in the 49th L.D. of Clark County.  She has only hurt our economy, and caused.  There are even stories that Ms. Herrera-Beutler married because she had an illegitmate Child, and yet she votes against Abortion Rights in our Great State.  Its sad how we have let the GOP control and attempt a full coup-de-etat with Herrera's support, by Trump and his set of Radical misfits who sought to destroy the Democracy of our Great Nation.  Herrera needs to go.  Thanks for allowing me to speak openly and express my deepest concerns about Clark County voters, espeically GOP-ers to continue to flood National Campaign Funds into to buying and assuring Herrera-Beutler remains in office.  We can crush her, if we get the needed campaign support from the National Dems, and those more significant Local Dems to remove and elect a truly Democratic candidate to her office.  This is her third term, I think she has hurt Clark County, and the State of Washington's reputation enoiugh.  She needs to go.

    Real life consequences of overturning Roe v Wade:

    From the AP

    Dr. Jessian Munoz, an OB-GYN in San Antonio, Texas, who treats high-risk pregnancies, said medical decisions used to be clear cut.

    “It was like, the mom’s life is in danger, we must evacuate the uterus by whatever means that may be,” he said. “Whether it’s surgical or medical — that’s the treatment.”

    Now, he said, doctors whose patients develop pregnancy complications are struggling to determine whether a woman is “sick enough” to justify an abortion.

    With the fall of Roe v. Wade, “the art of medicine is lost and actually has been replaced by fear,” Munoz said.

    Munoz said he faced an awful predicament with a recent patient who had started to miscarry and developed a dangerous womb infection. The fetus still had signs of a heartbeat, so an immediate abortion — the usual standard of care — would have been illegal under Texas law.

    “We physically watched her get sicker and sicker and sicker” until the fetal heartbeat stopped the next day, “and then we could intervene,” he said. The patient developed complications, required surgery, lost multiple liters of blood and had to be put on a breathing machine “all because we were essentially 24 hours behind.’’In a study published this month in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, doctors at two Texas hospitals cited the cases of 28 women less than 23 weeks pregnant who were treated for dangerous pregnancies. The doctors noted that all of the women had recommended abortions delayed by nine days because fetal heart activity was detected. Of those, nearly 60% developed severe complications — nearly double the number of complications experienced by patients in other states who had immediate therapeutic abortions. Of eight live births among the Texas cases, seven died within hours. The eighth, born at 24 weeks, had severe complications including brain bleeding, a heart defect, lung disease and intestinal and liver problems.

    Another situation where other medical care is being denied because of the SCOTUS decision:

    Becky Schwarz, of Tysons Corner, Virginia, found herself unexpectedly thrust into the abortion controversy even though she has no plans to become pregnant.

    The 27-year-old has lupus, an autoimmune disease that can cause the body to attack tissue surrounding joints and organs, leading to inflammation and often debilitating symptoms. For Schwarz, these include bone and joint pain, and difficulty standing for long periods of time.

    She recently received a notice from her doctor saying she’d have to stop taking a medication that relieves her symptoms — at least while the office reviewed its policies for methotrexate in light of the Supreme Court ruling. That’s because the drug can cause miscarriages and theoretically could be used in an attempt to induce an abortion.

    I support protecting these rights, and my Representative voted against all women!  Anyone who votes against women loses my vote!
