Sen. Lisa Murkowski and fellow pro-abortion Republican, Sen. Susan Collins (Maine), have joined forces to reintroduce a bill that would sanctioned the legal killing of preborn babies right up to the point of birth. The so-called “Reproductive Freedom for All Act” was previously introduced in the 117th Congress by Murkowski and four others. The same group is pushing it this time around.
Murkowski released a statement saying she feels it’s up to her and other lawmakers to impose the extreme abortion bill, which would impact every state in the union.
“I’m proud to reintroduce bipartisan legislation with my colleagues,” Murkowski told the Richmond Times Dispatch. “Unless we enshrine reproductive health care autonomy into law, we risk a future where generations of women will grow up with fewer rights than their mothers.”
If passed by both the Senate and House and signed by the president, Murkowski’s legislation would mandate that states legalize the killing of preborn babies for virtually any reason, up to the point of birth.

However, the new bipartisan legislation is nearly as extreme. It also would force states to legalize killing unborn babies for any reason up to viability as well as abortions up to birth in certain circumstances.
Of note is the fact that the proposed law seeks to mandate that all states permit late-term abortion in order to protect the “health” of the woman. Abortionists routinely use this catch-all term is widely used to justify nearly any excuse to kill an unwanted baby.
Given that Republicans now control the U.S. House, Murkowski’s bill has little chance of making it to Biden’s desk, but the bill does have a chance of passing the narrowly divided U.S. Senate.
After last year’s ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down Roe v. Wade, pro-abortion activists have been pushing hard for federal legislation mandating abortion in all 50 states.
