Here’s what some of your voices had to say today about H.R. 3, titled by its Republican authors as “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” and nicknamed by the National Abortion Federation as the “No Dignity or Abortion Care for Women Act.” Whatever you call it, it passed on a 251-175 vote with 16 Democrats crossing the aisle to support it and no Republicans opposing it. It stands practically no chance in the Democrat-dominated Senate.
