Virginia Democrat Senator Tim Kaine, who calls himself Catholic, along with pro-abortion Republican Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski introduced the “Reproductive Freedom for All Act” last week in the US Senate.
The new pro-abortion federal law being proposed by the Senate “moderates” would require states to recognize a right to kill children in the their mother’s wombs up to the point of viability for any reason and after viability for any health reason.
The broad “health” exception was defined under Doe v. Bolton, the companion case to Roe v. Wade, to include all factors one could imagine, such as economic, emotional and societal. In other words, the health exception is so big that it makes the arbitrary line of viability totally irrelevant.
In February of 2022, the two pro-abortion Republicans voted against a bill that had passed the House of Representatives by a narrow margin of 218-211, but was eventually rejected as being too radical.
With the inclusion of Republican pro-aborts and other every Democrat, it is possible that the bill could pass the US Senate. However, it is unlikely that the bill would pass the House of Representatives after Democrats lost the majority in the 2022 midterm elections.
