The House of Representatives will vote on the Right to Contraception Act

After Uncle Clarence stated the Extreme Court should overturn Griswold v. Connecticut, the landmark case that prohibited states from banning contraceptives, the House of Representatives will vote Thursday on the Right to Contraception Act, a bill that would protect access to birth control.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Democrats in a letter Monday that the House will pass the bills “this week” to enshrine those rights in order “to protect freedom in our nation, as extremist Justices and lawmakers take aim at more of our basic rights.” It’s unclear if the bill will pass the US Senate.

Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, a member of GOP leadership, said she would “have to look at any text” on codifying legal birth control.

“I don’t know that we need to codify things like that. Shouldn’t that be states and local jurisdictions, maybe?” she said. “I would just have to see how it’s worded. But, no, I think women should have access to contraception. But it depends on the definition of contraception.”
