Official Message from Congressman Cynthia Lummis about Restricting Women's Rights! And her position in the Uterus Police Squad!

Cynthia is doing her Yeoman's work for her fundamentalist right-wing campaign donors.
Although it is easy for millionaires like her to get abortions because of their mistakes while having sex, for everyone else she thinks it is evil, and is basically a hypocrite.
When her daughter had one, it was OK, when she had one, it was OK, but screw everyone else, right Cynthia?

Dear William:
 
Thank you for contacting me regarding pro-life issues.  I appreciate this opportunity to respond.
 
I support overturning Roe v. Wade and returning the ultimate decision of abortion legality to the 50 states.  The people of Wyoming, through the state legislature and the constitutional amendment process, should have the right to establish policy on abortion, adoption, the definition of marriage, and other social and family matters in a manner that is consistent with their values, instead of these decisions being made by the Supreme Court. 
 
Most recently, I voted for House passage of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (H.R. 1797), which passed the House by a vote of 228-196.  Drafted in light of medical evidence that unborn children start experiencing pain at 20 weeks of age or earlier, H.R. 1797 prohibits elective abortions if the post-fertilization age of the unborn child is 20 weeks or more.  The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.
 
Further, I oppose federal tax dollars being used for abortions – both domestically and abroad.  Federal family planning dollars are currently provided to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States.  While these dollars cannot directly fund an abortion, Planned Parenthood still uses it to free up money for its abortion-providing affiliates. 
 
To end this federal subsidy of abortion, I have cosponsored and voted for House passage of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.  Introduced by Rep. Chris Smith as H.R. 3 in the last Congress, the bill would have established a permanent, government-wide, prohibition on federal funding for elective abortions and insurance coverage for elective abortions.  This prohibition would apply specifically to Obama Care.  It would not extend to treatment for complications caused by an abortion or an abortion in cases of rape, incest, or to preserve the life of the mother.
 
H.R. 3 would have also instituted conscience protections for medical providers.  I do not believe that any physician who objects to abortions should be forced to participate in abortions.  All physicians, regardless of source of funding, should have the right to practice medicine pursuant to their personal values regarding life.  I voted for H.R. 3 when it passed the House on May 4, 2011 by a vote of 251-175.  While the U.S. Senate failed to act on this bill before it expired at the end of the 112th Congress, I will continue supporting bills to end the federal abortion subsidy and ensure conscience protections for medical providers.
 
In order to combat gender-based abortion, in the last Congress I cosponsored H.R. 3541, the Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act (PRENDA), which was introduced by Rep. Trent Franks of Arizona.  H.R. 3541 would make it a federal offense for doctors to knowingly perform abortions that are sought solely because of the gender of the child.  This is an atrocious practice that is usually pursued to prevent the birth of baby girls in favor of having baby boys.  It is a barbaric form of sex discrimination that is unfortunately occurring in the United States.
 
I voted in favor of H.R. 3541 when it came to vote on May 31, 2012.  H.R. 3541 received a simple majority vote of 246-148.  However, on a motion to suspend the rules and pass the bill, it did not meet the required two-thirds majority vote and was not passed by the House.  Despite this setback, I am committed to seeing this legislation through the House of Representatives.
 
I also oppose human embryo destroying research, and have instead chosen to support alternative research, using ethically obtained stem-cells as viable alternatives.  That is why I support research and clinical trials that use adult-stem cells.  These stem-cells have been used to successfully treat patients who suffered from Type 1 Diabetes, Leukemia, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, and heart diseases.
 
Thank you again for taking the time to write to me.  I value your input.  If you haven't done so already, I would like to encourage you to visit my website at www.lummis.house.gov.  There you can sign up to receive my newsletter, and have access to a wealth of other information.  I won't flood your email box, but I will provide you with updates once in a while about activities in Washington that affect our lives in Wyoming.  I hope you will sign up so that we can stay in close touch, and I look forward to seeing you in Wyoming.
 
 
Sincerely,
Cynthia M. Lummis
Member of Congress
