Rep. Mark Green Condemns House Democrats’ Abortion-on-Demand Bill

WASHINGTON—Today, Rep. Mark Green, an emergency room physician, released the following statement following House Democrats’ abortion-on-demand legislation, the "Women's Health Protection Act." 

“Nancy Pelosi’s so-called “Women's Health Protection Act” allows abortion until the second of birth. It’s unconscionable to think that Radical Democrats are so illusioned by the lies of the left that they refuse to see what science shows and what the majority of Americans recognize: That life begins at conception. Ending a human life up until the second of birth is not “choice,” but a barbaric practice that should never be permitted in a civilized country such as ours.” 

Green added, “A recent survey found that 66 percent of adults who identify as 'pro-choice' are against third-trimester abortions, and 68 percent oppose abortions the day before a baby is born. It's clear: radical Democrats in Congress are on the wrong side of history—and science—when it comes to their unapologetic abortion on demand policy.”
