Stupak on Steroid Agenda

I’m sure you are aware (and if you’re not, go read a newspaper or watch the news immediately) of the extreme anti-choice legislation that is attempting to further restrict abortion access.  The No Tax Payer for Abortion Funding Act (HR 3) and the Protect Life Act (HR 358) together are known as the “Stupak on Steroids” agenda.

HR 3 would force people to pay higher taxes if their private insurance plans include abortion coverage.  Despite promises last week to drop the controversial provision, the term “forcible rape” is still in the bill.  Meanwhile, HR 353 would allow hospitals to refuse to perform an abortion on a woman, even if the mother’s life is threatened.  As Jill at Feministe puts it,

In other words, it gives doctors the green light to let women die if they have a life-threatening condition and need an emergency abortion.
