The Women’s Health Protection Act is one of the most extreme pieces of abortion legislation ever introduced. The bill would wipe out most state pro-life laws and make unlimited abortion until the moment of birth legal at the federal level. This vote was taken on September 24, 2021. Rep. Vela Jr. voted YES.
The Equality Act is a deceptively named bill being pushed by the radical “LGBTQIA+” lobby. It would expand transgenderism even to the point of taking children away from parents who won’t agree to gender “transition” and decimate the religious freedom of Catholic churches, schools, and other institutions to teach the truth about sexuality and the family. This vote was taken on February 25, 2021. Rep. Vela Jr. voted YES.
The resolution sought to revive the long-dead “Equal Rights Amendment”, which would add a right to abortion to the Constitution and eliminate legal protections long given to women, such as alimony and exemption from the draft. This vote was taken on March 17, 2021. Rep. Vela Jr. voted YES.
“The integrity of our Church—and all we profess to believe—is at stake.”
