You expect any rational person to believe members of Congress who, in any other legislative effort that teeters on the abortion fence will gladly fall in favor of it, worked for weeks on this bill, often in secret or closed meetings, and it DOESN’T support or favor their position?
Why would they do that?
If that was their intent, they had a perfect opportunity to do so when language was offered that specifically prohibited funding elective abortions. Remember their action on that? It was flat out REJECTED.
So what this comes down to is Congress was unwilling to put that language into the bill, now what the monies pay for (if there is any dispute) is resolved by the decree of people with an ardently pro-abortion history, and you think a nebulous PA state statute is going to stand in their way? Good luck!
Only the naive are going to view this with any hope of federal restraint. This administration are stridently anti-life, and the proof is their voting records, what they say, who they appoint, who they support, and who supports them. This is their plan - make changes incrementally. It’s the camel’s nose under the tent, without regard that the nose is attached to the rest of the camel.
We haven’t seen any cases yet, so we don’t KNOW what will happen, we can only judge on the history of how other laws have been handles and applied. We read things like “only in (some) cases…” but when a woman can tell her doctor it’s causing emotional stress and turn it from “elective” to “necessary,” then where is this wall of protection that is being claimed? There isn’t one.
