Democrats block resolution to create National Pregnancy Center Week

Pregnancy Centers Week

If you need any more proof that the Democratic Party is the party of abortion and beholden to the Planned Parenthood abortion business, look no further than the United States Senate. There, Democrats today blocked a resolution to honor pregnancy centers that provide women with abortion alternatives and help support pregnant women and facilitate adoptions.

Senator Mike Lee, a pro-life Utah Republican, sponsored the resolution today, during what is known as National Pregnancy Center Week. He requested unanimous consent from the Senate to approve Senate Resolution 37, which would designate the second week in November as “National Pregnancy Center Week.”

But leading abortion advocate Senator Patty Murray, a Washington Democrat, objected to the request calling the resolution “another effort to pander to the extreme Republican base…. They want to interfere with a women’s [sic] medical decisions.”

“If that is divisive, we have significant problems,” Lee responded during the exchange, shown in the video below.

The objection comes at around the three minute mark.

"If that's divisive, we have significant problems."

In presenting the resolution, Senator Lee said, “I am asking for my colleagues’ unanimous consent because there is absolutely nothing contentious about this resolution or the pregnancy-resource centers it commemorates.”

“There are approximately twenty-five hundred pregnancy-resource centers in America. And every single day, they serve an average of sixty-five thousand women and men faced with challenging pregnancy decisions, providing them a wide array of resources. This includes, at many centers, health-care services – like pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and testing for STDs and STIs.”
