Last week, The House of Representatives voted on a far-left amendment to extend the long past-due deadline to enshrine the pro-abortion “Equal Rights Amendment” into law.
Four Republican members of the House of Representatives voted for the bill, which is sparking a fire from the pro-life movement.
Nicole Malliotakis (R-NY)
Rep. Malliotakis ran on a pro-life ticket, even signing the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) pledge not to support legislation that promotes or funds abortion.
She betrayed that oath, as NRLC noted in a tweet:
In 2020, Nicole Malliotakis promised NY State Right to Life "to oppose any attempt to retroactively nullify the ratification deadline on the 1972 ERA." But on 3-17-21, she was 1 of only 4 House Republicans to vote to do just that.

Tom Reed (R-NY)
Rep. Reed, who is currently under fire for admitting to sexual harassment allegations, will not run for re-election in 2022.
John Curtis (R-UT)
Rep. Curtis previously co-signed a letter stating, “We share your belief that every human life is precious, sacred, and deserving of protection.” It is unclear why he has changed his tune now. He took over the former seat of U.S. Rep.
Brain Fitzpatrick (R-PA)
Rep. Fitzpatrick previously told the Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia, “I oppose legalized abortion, except when the life of the mother is in danger or the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest.” He appears to have changed his tune.
What are your thoughts about these Republicans’ pro-abortion votes for the Equal Rights Amendment?
