                            PROTECT LIFE ACT

  (Mrs. DAVIS of California asked and was given permission to address 
the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.)
  Mrs. DAVIS of California. Madam Speaker, there is a strange thing 
that is going to be happening on this floor in just a little while. We 
should be focusing like a laser on jobs and strengthening the middle 
class. But instead, the majority is bringing forth a measure, the 
Protect Life Act. It's a measure coming before this body which, quite 
honestly, Members have had a chance to express themselves on numerous 
times. This does not create jobs. And what's ironic about it is this 
Protect Life Act is actually putting the lives of women at risk.
  I really don't think that the American people feel that right now, 
today, that this is the highest priority for our country. Our highest 
priority is finding jobs for people in our country, not taking away 
lifesaving care from women.
