Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Greg Murphy, M.D. (NC-03) released the following statement after voting NO on H.R. 3755, the Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act. If passed, H.R. 3755 would repeal nearly all pro-life protections for the unborn at the state and federal levels and turn every state into a late-term abortion state where abortions may be performed until the moment before birth for any reason with no protections for women:

“Today, House Democrats continued their unconscionable attack on life,” said Rep. Murphy. “The Abortion on Demand Until Birth Act is without a doubt one of the most egregious and extreme pieces of legislation to ever hit the House floor. In addition to being an evil assault on the unalienable rights of life and liberty, this bill is also a gross violation of the 14th Amendment – steamrolling states right in the name of inexcusable federal overreach. As a practicing physician and lawmaker, it is my obligation to fight for those innocents who cannot fight for themselves. I will always defend the right to life and protect American taxpayer dollars from being used to fund on-demand abortion. I voted no on this abhorrent bill and lament its passage in the House.”
