BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Ms. CHU. Imagine a world in which the Federal Government actually prevents women from receiving the medical procedures that would save their lives. Innocent, law-abiding Americans--young and old--would live or die by government decree.

If you think this is some kind of Orwellian fantasy, think again, and take a good look at the abortion bill being pushed by Republicans today. With only a narrow exception to protect life but not the woman's health, it could very well be a death sentence to countless women in the most desperate of circumstances.

This bill is a blatant attack on a woman's right to choose, and the people who will pay the most will be those who are most in need of help.

I urge my colleagues to vote ``no'' on this nationwide 20-week abortion-ban bill, and I call on the Republican Party to stop pushing bills that endanger American women.
