To my friends in the media… it is called “receipts”… stop giving performance artists a venue to preach moderation & then vote extreme! She still voted for the damn bill!!! https://t.co/GTVpMmeUyj— Jaime Harrison, DNC Chair (@harrisonjaime) January 12, 2023

Keep telling us about sh*t that doesn’t happen, bruh. You’re doing great. https://t.co/zoeiLamvM5
If passed by the Senate (which it won't be) and signed by the President (which it wouldn't be), this measure would at best be inconsequential. On August 15, 2002 the Born Alive Infants Protection Act was signed into law by President Bush, who contended it "ensures that every infant born alive- including an infant who survives an abortion procedure- is considered a person under federal law."
But that's not all. On July 15, 2002 Mace failed to vote on the Ensuring Access to Abortion Act of 2022 and voted against the Women's Health Protection Act of 2022. On April 25, 2019 she voted with the overwhelming majority of her GOP colleagues in the South Carolina House of Representatives to approve the Prohibits Abortion After a Fetal Heartbeat is Detected bill.
Of course, once the US Supreme Court handed down its decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization overturning Roe v. Wade and awakened the nation's pro-choice majority, the congresswoman would conceal her record. In a general election debate last October against her Democratic opponent, Mace claimed "she just said that I supported and signed on to a bill that would ban all abortions without exceptions. That's a complete and utter lie. The word 'abortion' isn't even in that bill."
Mace had not been a co-sponsor. However, the bill, later signed into law by the Republican governor, included the word "abortion" sixty-two (62) times. And, oh yea, the title.
As suggested by Jaime Harrison, Nancy Mace is a performance artist who preaches moderation when politically advantageous but refuses to challenge her party's effort to force a woman into giving birth. She's given license by news hosts anxious to convince the public that there are two Republican parties: one "conservative" and one "moderate." Although a small majority of Republicans is mainstream and a large majority sympathetic to insurrection, there is ideologically only one, extremely conservative, Republican Party.
