Federal - H Res 891

Sense-of-House resolution to promote ERA ratification scheme

Introduced

January 28, 2022

Description

H.Res. 891, introduced by pro-abortion Congresswoman Jackie Speiers (D-CA), says that "it is the sense of the House of Representatives" that the 1972 Equal Rights Amendment is now "a part of the Constitution, and shall be known as the 'Twenty-Eighth Amendment to the Constitution.'"  This resolution is part of a complex scheme to convince the public and the courts that the ERA has been ratified and is part of the Constitution, even though the ERA contained a deadline and expired without achieving ratification on March 22, 1979. Pro-abortion groups now openly proclaim that if the ERA becomes part of the Constitution, they believe it will enshrine "abortion rights" even broader than Roe v. Wade. NRLC opposes H.Res. 891.
