WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives in coming weeks will debate and vote on legislation stopping states from enacting restrictive anti-abortion regulations like the one just approved by Texas, Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday.
Saying in a statement that the Texas statute “delivers catastrophe to women in Texas, particularly women of color and women from low-income communities,” Pelosi said a Democratic bill will be brought before the full House for debate “upon our return” from a recess that is scheduled to end Sept. 20.
