House Bulldozes Religious Freedom to Pass H.R. 2119

Today, Education and Labor Committee Republican Leader Virginia Foxx (R-NC) delivered the following statement after the House passed H.R. 2119, the Family Violence Prevention and Services Improvement Act (FVPSA), without any provisions safeguarding religious freedom:

“The Democrats’ partisan proposal could harm the unborn and obstruct high-quality providers from offering services to domestic violence victims. FVPSA is not an instrument for partisan policies, especially those that threaten religious liberty. I, along with many of my Republican colleagues, are committed to continuing FVPSA’s history of bipartisanship. Sadly, Democrats have upended the previously bipartisan balance between prevention services and support for victims and children at the behest of special interest groups. This is shameful.”
