GOP Senators Block 'Right to Contraception' Misinformation Bill

On Wednesday, Senate Republicans blocked the Democrats' “Right to Contraception” bill. The bill sought to provide more money to places like Planned Parenthood to facilitate more abortions and promote transgender surgeries on kids.

Senator Ed Markey (D-Mass.) proposed the bill called “Right to Contraception.” Critics have more appropriately titled the bill as the “Payouts for Planned Parenthood Act.”

Democrats attempted to pass the bill with the motives of securing access to contraception for individuals, but, as GOP critics pointed out, that motive was misleading. In actuality, the bill would send money directly into the wide pockets of Planned Parenthood so that it can continue aborting innocent babies.

Top pro-life group Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America elaborated on the motives in a letter, noting that it would “funnel money to Planned Parenthood, override conscience protections, and could mandate access to abortion drugs. It also feeds into the false narrative that states have prohibited contraceptives or family planning, or that there are federal efforts to do so,” adding that “This bill has less to do with the ability of individuals to obtain contraception and more to do with ensuring federal funding for abortion providers who also happen to provide contraceptives.”

The bill strategically makes the definition of “contraception” broad so that it doesn’t just mean things like condoms, but includes things like the abortion pill, which doesn’t stop a baby from being conceived but rather kills a baby that already is. That’s not reproduction, it’s murder.

Terry Shilling, president of the American Principles Project noted the following about Democrats motives according to CatholicVote

What’s going on is nothing new. 

Democrats have been hell-bent on forcing taxpayers to fund all types of ‘reproductive care,’and really what they mean is abortion, sterilization, contraception – everything that the Catholic Church stands against.

We stand on the side of life, and the Democratic Party has become a death cult.

Shilling also noted that the bill would also serve as a “trojan horse” for transgender surgeries on minors, something Planned Parenthood loves doing.

The Senate voted 51-39 against moving forward with the bill. It would’ve needed 60 votes to proceed.

The devil is in the details, and it’s a good thing this bill didn’t pass. It, like most of the left, is chock full of misinformation and has an agenda that puts innocent children at imminent risk.
