Last week House Resolution 464 was filed by Rep. Doug Lamborn (R ) in the U.S. House of Representatives.
This resolution is being presented by Rep. Lamborn as “the new north star that will guide future legislation and set the precedent for our nation to secure equal protection for unborn children and preserve the sanctity of life.”
And it’s receiving praise from some Pro-Life organizations and leaders.
Equal protection sounds great, right?
🚨There’s just one problem.
If H.Res. 464 is followed as the north star and federal legislation is implemented in alignment with it…
Not only would we not have equal protection of the laws for babies, we would have federal law protecting self-managed abortion as a constitutional right.
This would be Roe 2.0. 😱
The truth is that H.Res. 464 argues that mothers should be constitutionally protected from prosecution for any part they may play in committing their own abortions and that states should be prohibited from doing anything about it.
This is unacceptable.
Calling this bill “equal protection” renders that phrase worse than meaningless. It turns it on its head. It uses the language of equal protection but guts those words to mean virtually the opposite.
That’s why the Foundation to Abolish Abortion has released a Statement on House Resolution 464 calling on Pro-Life lobbyists, organizations, and legislators who have praised this resolution to repudiate their support of this supposed “north star” for legislation.
This bill as written will do tremendous damage to the cause of equal protection unless we take action to expose it.
