    @Macmillan has drastically exaggerated the intents of Mr. Grant and I in our proposed bill. I clearly stated in the press release that this bill is not addressing the legality of abortion. He is derailing from the point of the bill.

    1. We not trying to regulate anything. We never stated anything about the legality of abortion in the bill or press release. 2. Although Planned Parenthood does provide other services, it’s revenue is heavily dependent on abortions. In fact, Planned Parenthood Director, Abby Johnson, even testified that employees have abortion quotas that they have to meet. They are selling abortions to pregnant women. Also, if @Macmillan would’ve read the press release I stated that we would be happy to redirect funds to other clinics who provide the same services but exclude abortion. 3. Leave the hypocrisy. @Macmillan isn’t pro-choice. He’s pro-abortion. IM pro-choice. I am pro-abstinence, pro-contraception, pro- marriage, and I’m pro-adoption. I’m just not pro-abortion. This isn’t a matter of choice. It’s a matter of murder at convenience.

    Second Amendment Guarantee Act

    Mr. Speaker, In regards to "completely" removing the ability of cities to regulate guns, that statement is simply false. The bill clearly states in Sec. 2 that this limitation will only take place in relation to shotguns and rifles. I would advice the members to actually read the legislation proposal. Places like Chicago, Baltimore, and Detroit can continue restricting any other guns if they so do please. This bill does not address that. Do not exaggerate the proposition. I yield. OOC: I was unaware of the rules and have since learned my mistake. Disregard this and please delete it @Magenta

    Anthony Fernandez (R-TX) Press Office

    The Office of Representative Anthony Fernandez For Immediate Release Representative Anthony Fernandez (R-TX) and Representative Johnathon Grant (R-MO) co-authored and introduced pro-life legislation to the House of Representatives today. The bill, titled the Grant-Fernandez Federal Funding for Abortion Act, aims to defund Planned Parenthood and every other abortion-providing organization. Both Representatives gave statements: Mr. Grant, a Republican of Missouri, said: "This is not only a pro-life bill, this is a limited government bill. The government has no legitimate purpose to fund these murder barns against the wishes of millions upon millions of US taxpayers. This is a victory for the people of this country who truly don't want to be involved in the murder of their fellow human beings. Conservatives, libertarians, and moderates can all agree that we shouldn't be forced to fund something we find so abhorrent, something so unnecessary and irrelevant to the function of government. This is a bill for the moral American taxpayer, the ones who don't want to be involved in the gruesome murder and dismemberment of the most vulnerable of our kind." Mr. Fernandez, a Republican from Texas, said: "As Ronald Reagan once said, 'Abortion is advocated only by persons who have themselves been born.' Keeping that in mind, we must be the voice for those who cannot speak. But, let us recognize this bill for what it is. This bill does not address the legality of abortion, this bill addresses the will of the people. There is no reason for the government to fund abortion providers when only 25% of Americans fully support abortion according to The Pew Research Center in 2018. It is morally wrong, and I would even dare to say that it is a violation of our freedom of religion to force the American tax payer to support such immoral atrocities against their will. This ought to be a bi-partisan bill. There should be no reason to negate the bill if you truly have the will of the people in mind. It is abusive for the government to use such funds to fuel organizations that perform over one million abortions every single year. According to the U.S. Government Accountability Office, Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the US, received a total of one point five billion dollars in federal money between fiscal years 2013-2015. Let me repeat that, one point five BILLION, and that still excludes other abortion providers in the nation. It's not hard to see why Democrats want to keep it that way since Planned Parenthood pours back millions of dollars into the Democratic Party. We must realize that money is fungible, by giving federal funds to these organizations we allow them to redirect funds for the purpose of abortions. If you're worried about STD tests, pregnancy tests, or any other regular clinical offers, the government could subsidize that. Conservatives, Libertarians, and Moderates would all much rather see one point five billion dollars in federal money go to clinics that don't offer or support abortion than to places such as Planned Parenthood."

    Defeat of Internal Threats Act

    Mr. Speaker, I still fail to see why the gentleman from Texas is straying from the proposed question. If this bill is meant to save lives, why can you not accept to address left-wing terrorism? The Republicans are trying to pass this bill to save lives, it is you who is preventing the passage by trying to virtue-single. I yield.

    Defeat of Internal Threats Act

    Mr. Speaker, With all due respect if the true goal of this bill is to save lives then why is it so hard to accept left wing extremism is also a problem to be addressed? Amend this bill to address that problem and we can all agree. This bill is nothing more than a weapon for virtue-signaling. Republicans, as previously stated, will happily support any bill that addresses domestic terrorism, but we would need to amended the current proposition or introduce a new one. This is a bi-partisan issue. We all want to stop terrorists, no one here wants terrorism. But I will absolutely not lend myself to support a bill that 1. Does not fully address the problem of domestic terrorism. 2. Creates hatred toward conservative thinkers by signaling out right extremism. Which is not condoned by any means. And 3. Is being used to virtue signal. I yield.
