Democrat lawmakers in the House and Senate reintroduced a bill titled the “Women’s Health Protection Act” (WHPA) which, if signed into law, would allow unlimited abortion in any state in the nation.
Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) joined Reps. Judy Chu (D-CA), Lois Frankel (D-FL), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Veronica Escobar (D-TX) in reintroducing the measure Tuesday.
Thus far, the WHPA has 48 Democrat co-sponsors in the Senate – all Senate Democrats except Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WVA) and Bob Casey (D-PA), and 176 Democrat co-sponsors in the House.
