I alluded to this earlier but it’s really worth quoting more fully. Both in a press conference and on the House floor earlier today, during debate on the Protect Life Act, former speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said that Republicans are voting to let women die on hospital floors when they vote for the Protect Life Act.
Under this bill, when the Republicans vote for this bill today, they will be voting to say that women can die on the floor and health care providers do not have to intervene if this bill is passed. It’s just appalling.
Video of the press remarks here:
Pelosi is warping conscience protection for pro-life hospital workers into that appalling nonsense.
In truth, the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act already requires hospital workers to do whatever is necessary to stabilize the condition of both the mother and her “unborn child” (the wording in the law) in an emergency room.
It’s also appalling nonsense to contend that it is only liberal women who can properly defend women’s health, which she also does.
