National Right to Life Praises Republican Motion to Recommit H.R. 535 Amending the Safe Drinking Water Act

WASHINGTON—Today, National Right to Life (NRLC) praised pro-life members of the House of Representatives for their commitment to including unborn children in the “vulnerable populations” the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) should consider when it works on the development of drinking water standards. The “Motion to Recommit” would have amended the Safe Drinking Water Act to add “any unborn child” to the subpopulations recognized in the act.

The motion failed by a vote of 187-219. All Republicans and 4 Democrats voted in favor of the motion.

“We thank pro-life members for their work in protecting the most vulnerable among us,” stated Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “As a member of the human family, it is only right that the unborn child be considered part of the ‘vulnerable populations’ the EPA should consider. Unfortunately, pro-abortion ideology is too entrenched among almost all Democrats for the House to pass this reasonable motion.”
