Granting Legal Rights to a Pregnancy (“Personhood”) (11/16/17)


Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, H.R.1. Final Passage. A bill to overhaul the tax system which grants 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 health.) Passed 227-205 (Paul Ryan cast a Speaker vote). A pro-choice vote (✓) was against the bill (11/16/17).

Votes for bill:
  • Anti-choice position
Votes against bill:
  • Pro-choice position
Absences or N/A:

Voting Record

Everyone should be able to decide if, when, how, and with whom they start or grow a family.
