Granting Legal Rights to a Pregnancy (“Personhood”) (12/20/18)

H.R. 88

The Retirement, Savings, and Other Tax Relief Act, H.R.88. Final Passage. A bill to amend the tax code which would grant separate legal rights to a pregnancy, laying the legal groundwork to ban abortion outright. (Some anti-choice lawmakers cast what appear to be pro-choice votes; most observers recognize that those votes were cast for reasons unrelated to reproductive rights.) Passed 220-183. A pro-choice vote (+) was against the bill (12/20/18).
