Here's a crime in the making:


SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the `Freedom of Choice Act'  S.1173.

S. 1173
To protect, consistent with Roe v . Wade, a woman's freedom to choose to bear a child or terminate a pregnancy, and for other purposes.

Nancy Polosi and Billary believe the right to an abortion is guaranteed by the commerce clause!
This isn't a law it's a freekin' documentary.

SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

Congress finds the following:

.....

(13) Although Congress may not create constitutional rights without amending the Constitution, Congress may, where authorized by its enumerated powers and not prohibited by the Constitution, enact legislation to create and secure statutory rights in areas of legitimate national concern.

(14) Congress has the affirmative power under section 8 of article I of the Constitution and section 5 of the 14th amendment to the Constitution to enact legislation to facilitate interstate commerce and to prevent State interference with interstate commerce, liberty, or equal protection of the laws.

(15) Federal protection of a woman's right to choose to prevent or terminate a pregnancy falls within this affirmative power of Congress, in part, because--

(A) many women cross State lines to obtain abortions and many more would be forced to do so absent a constitutional right or Federal protection;

(B) reproductive health clinics are commercial actors that regularly purchase medicine, medical equipment, and other necessary supplies from out-of-State suppliers; and

(C) reproductive health clinics employ doctors, nurses, and other personnel who travel across State lines in order to provide reproductive health services to patients.

If this passes it could truly be said that our government is trafficing in the death of the innocent.
