House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) said on Wednesday that the GOP will address the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act on day one if the party wins control of the House during the midterm elections.
Scalise made the remark during a press conference in response to a question regarding Republican plans for pro-life legislation if Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court.
“I hope that the ruling comes out soon and I hope it’s the ruling that was leaked. I’m disappointed that there was a leak,” Scalise said during the press conference.
“We’re a party who defends life and we would celebrate a ruling that allows elected leaders to defend life and debate in open public what those laws should be in every state and in Washington.
