Today, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) which the the Obama Administration and leading Congressional Democrats pushed through on March 21, 2010.
Upon hearing that the U.S. House voted to repeal Obamacare, Kristan Hawkins commented,
“Today’s historic vote to repeal Obamacare is a step forward in the direction of Life. While all Americans are in need of quality and affordable health care, that need should not be valued over the lives of innocent preborn Americans.
Obama’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was the most pro-abortion piece of legislation in American history. Today, Congress showed that preborn Americans are finally represented in our nation’s capitol. I look forward to the House debate on how to bring meaningful pro-life health care reform that respects all human life
America now looks to Senator Harry Reid to allow the same up or down vote on the floor of the U.S. Senate.”
The vote passed this afternoon by a vote of 245 to 189. The bill will now be sent to the Senate for a vote.
