H.R. 1322, formally titled the "Women's Health Protection Act," is sponsored by Rep. Judy Chu (D-Ca.). The bill is strongly supported by the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, NARAL, and other pro-abortion activist groups. A more accurate title for this radical bill would be the "Abortion Without Limits Until Birth Act." The bill, if enacted and upheld by the federal courts, would invalidate nearly all state limitations on abortion, including waiting periods and women's right-to-know laws. For example, it would invalidate state laws to protect pain-capable unborn children after 20 weeks fetal age -- and would require all states to allow abortion even during the final three months of pregnancy based on an abortionist's claim of "health" benefits, including mental health. It would also invalidate nearly all existing federal laws limiting abortion.
