House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) (Getty Images) (CNS News) — At her weekly press conference today, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said, “We’re not going to negotiate a woman’s right to choose.”
On Thursday, a reporter asked Speaker Pelosi, “Congresswoman Chu’s bill has passed the House before, but it continues to fail in the Senate. Are there any discussions between House leadership and Senate leadership for some sort of negotiations?”
Pelosi replied, “What do you mean negotiations? What do you want to negotiate?”
The reporter followed-up, “Some senators have said that this bill, Senators Murkowski and Collins, for instance, have said that Congresswoman Chu’s bill goes too far.”

“We’re not going to negotiate a woman’s right to choose,” said Pelosi. “Senator Murkowski [R-Alaska] and Senator Collins [R-Me.] may have their view, but it is not a view that is one about a woman’s having the right to decide. So, we’re not negotiating that, no.”
Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.) introduced H.R.8296, the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2022 on July 7. The bill prohibits the federal government from placing restrictions on the provision of and access to abortion.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
