James Lankford blocks Dem Bill to protect abortionists

U.S. Senator James Lankford blocked pro-abortion Democrats on Thursday from passing a bill to shield abortionists from prosecution in pro-life states that protect unborn babies.

The Hill reports the Oklahoma Republican objected when Democrat lawmakers requested unanimous support of their pro-abortion bill, the Freedom to Travel for Health Care Act.

“There’s a child in this conversation as well,” Lankford said on the Senate floor. “Does that child in the womb have the right to travel in their future? Do they get to live?”

Sponsored by U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, D-Nevada, the legislation supposedly would ban pro-life states from punishing women for traveling to other states for abortions. However, pro-life laws do not punish women, and the pro-life movement clearly and repeatedly has said it opposes such punishments.

Lankford slammed the bill as “misinformation,” calling it just another effort “to inflame” and raise “the what-ifs,” according to The Epoch Times.

“To be very clear: No state has banned interstate travel for adult women seeking to obtain an abortion. No state has done that,” he said.

Lankford said there are no plans to ban women from traveling to other states for abortions either. The one piece of travel-related legislation that pro-life lawmakers are considering would protect girls from being sneaked across state lines for abortions by human traffickers and abusers, he continued.

The real purpose of Cortez Masto’s legislation appears to be to protect abortionists and abortion activists. It would prevent the criminal prosecution of abortionists and those who help them if they travel to abort unborn babies in violation of state pro-life laws. It also would ban states from punishing pro-abortion groups that provide travel costs and arrangements for women in pro-life states to go to pro-abortion states to abort their unborn babies.
