Congress to address anti-abortion-rights legislation, fetal heartbeats this week

Predictably, abortion was one of the leading foes at this year’s sixth annual Values Voter Summit, with presidential candidates and religious leaders receiving standing ovations for promising to overturn Roe v. Wade and for vilifying Planned Parenthood Federation of America. The weekend’s focus on Planned Parenthood and abortion rights is followed by a week filled with anti-abortion-rights legislative activity at the Capitol.

On Thursday, Capitol Hill will be host to pregnant women who will undergo public sonograms, in part a plug for an anti-abortion-rights bill (PDF) recently introduced by presidential contender Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), which would mandate sonograms for women seeking abortions. The ultrasound event, called “Voices From the Womb,” sponsored by the Christian Defense Coalition, is scheduled to take place in the Congressional Auditorium and will feature live ultrasounds on women in their second and third trimesters of pregnancy.

“[F]or the first time in history the ‘voice’ of these children will be loudly heard in our nation’s capital!” reads the campaign website.

On Friday, the House is scheduled to debate on House Resolution 358, or the “Protect Life Act,” according to The Washington Post. HR 358, introduced by Rep. Joe Pitts (R-Pa.) in January, would amend the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) to prohibit federal funds from going toward any health care plan that covers abortion services, in addition to blocking funding from being withheld from institutions opposed to providing abortions.

Star Parker, president and founder of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE), who has previously made vitriolic statements about abortion and same-sex marriage, was among the many speakers at this weekend’s summit to demand 2012 GOP presidential and congressional candidates promise to try to make abortion illegal in the U.S. Parker followed Bachmann’s address at Value Voters Friday night with a speech that, in part, compared abortion to slavery and the Holocaust.

“And as with slavery, when he turned the history clock on, we saw pictures and we said, ‘What happened? We were founded on such principles. The founding fathers prayed. How did we go 80 years, 600,000 dead later, to answer a simple question.’ That was just unlawful in God’s eyes. The protection of innocent life, to give that life that liberty and the opportunity to pursue their personal property and happiness. We saw it again in the Holocaust … and we said, ‘How did this happen? … How did the churches that were there just turn their music up and sing a little louder?’ Well, he’s gonna turn the history clock on today. He’s going to turn the history clock on because one day he is going to answer these questions. He’s going to answer the question of abortion, and he’s gonna answer the question of marriage.

He already defined marriage, and God is true and man is the liar.”
