US House votes to eliminate ratification deadline of Equal Rights Amendment

The House of Representatives of the United States voted to revive a decades old effort to ensure equal rights for women in the US Constitution, on Thursday. This sets up an election year confrontation that is facing long odds of succeeding.

How is this even a thing? Those a-holes are getting paid $174000 a year to do something, pretty sure this ain't it.

This is worse than just another empty social messaging bill from the house. Hear me out. They push forward non-stop bills that they know will never pass and then clutch thier pearls in faux outrage when the senate doesn't pass them or they get vetoed. Make no mistake, this is an attempt from the Democrats to use emotional persuasion to get something sneaky done, and here's what it is: They know Roe vs. Wade will be coming before the supreme court again. They know that with thier failed character assassination attempt on Brett Kavanaugh they have made a bitter enemy out of a lifetime appointee. They know abortion rights are in danger. The attempt to necro the Equal Rights Amendment is an attempt to enshrine abortion rights in the constitution before this can happen. Whatever your opinion on a woman's right to choose, nobody should be okay with third trimester+ abortions. One doesn't have to be religious to see that killing a living, wiggling, pain-feeling human being is wrong. Nobody has a 'right' to kill innocents.

Not legal. But when is the House ever concerned itself with legalities.

I just know that this is gonna be one of those bills, that the leftist retards will wave around as a bill that the House passed, but the Senate won't.

"the ERA will pave the way for greater abortion access" Well that is something i guess... but it still does seem like mostly feminist fluff language rather than anything substantive.

Why not let SCOTUS "interpret" equal rights into the constitution like they did abortion, SSM and that state senates could not be based on geographic districts?
