"Report: House GOP Has Held 55 Votes On Anti-Women Bills"

House Democrats have released a new study tracking the House GOP’s harmful anti-women agenda. Since January 2011, the Republican-controlled House has voted 55 times on bills to “undermine women’s health, roll back women’s rights, and defund programs and institutions that provide support for women,” according to the report prepared by the Energy and Commerce Committee’s Democratic staff. The votes — including 17 about health insurance, 11 to cut access to preventive care, and 10 to limit abortion access — make up 5 percent of all the House legislative votes in the 112th Congress.
