WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Fulcher released the following statement on H.R. 8373:

"In an attempt to undermine the Supreme Court’s ruling in Dobbs, Democrats are using H.R. 8373 as a vehicle to guarantee a right to chemical abortion. This legislation goes far beyond contraception, utilizing a definition of “contraceptive” so broad that it includes a right to chemical abortion drugs that can be used weeks or months into a pregnancy. Furthermore, the legislation completely disregards the freedom of conscience of health care providers, explicitly exempting itself from protections afforded to providers by the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. I oppose this poorly drafted bill and will vote NO."
