Writer takes issue with congressman’s votes

Extremism is alive and well in New Jersey, where the leader of the antiwomen’s crusade is hiding in plain sight.

Our congressman, Chris Smith, is chair of the Congressional pro-life caucus, leading the anti-abortion crusade.

Congressman Smith writes egregious legislation with regard to women’s health. In the last two years, Congressman Smith voted for fetal personhood four times and wrote HR1797, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

In 2011, Congressman Smith wrote HR3 to redefine rape to forcible rape. Why? To block rape and incest victims impregnated as a result of their attack from ending their pregnancy. Congressman Smith is against a women’s right to choose in cases of rape and incest or even to save the life of the mother.

Congressman Smith voted to outlaw the birth control pill (Amendment 142). Congressman Smith wrote HR7, blocking flexible spending money and private insurance from covering women’s reproductive care.

Our extreme Congressman Smith is the congressman who empowers the extremists all over the country.
