A conservative organization says Republicans should use their newfound control of one chamber of Congress to advance bills to save the lives of preborn babies.

Over the last couple of years, Biden's administration and congressional cohorts have effectively blocked passage of any legislation designed to save preborn lives, and they have worked around Congress to establish rules that promote abortion.

With a measure nicknamed the Abortion Without Limits Up to Birth Act, the Democrats wanted to force states to legalize abortions for basically any reason up to birth and force taxpayers to pay for them. Also, the misnamed Women's Health Protection Act would have ended parental consent for minors and jeopardized conscience protections for doctors and nurses who refused to abort unborn babies.

But as January will officially bring a Republican-led House, Eagle Forum spokeswoman Tabitha Walter advises the GOP to be careful of what they present while keeping their priorities in order.

"The main thing that we need to protect in the House is the Hyde Amendment," she submits. "The Hyde Amendment is no taxpayer funding for abortion, which is a very popular provision that the majority of Americans agree with."

Likewise, the Weldon Amendment protects medical professionals who do not want to have a role in abortion.

While protecting those measures, Walter says lawmakers should also not shy away from submitting bills that are controversial and even objectionable to their anti-life counterparts.

"They need to have more of these conversations, need to be educated on what abortion actually does and the development of the unborn children inside a mom's womb so that they understand that a 15-week abortion ban is necessary because we're talking about human life," she tells AFN.

The pro-lifer also makes mention of two bills in the works that would ban abortions if the baby can feel pain and another that would require medical personnel to help save any baby who is born alive in a failed abortion.
