Critical support

Britt, together with Senators Marco Rubio from Florida and Kevin Cramer from North Dakota, presented the More Opportunities for Moms to Succeed (MOMS) Act. The legislation is designed to offer “critical support” and resources to expectant mothers.

Controversial elements

With the bill being launched just before Mother’s Day, skeptics were prompt to highlight certain controversial elements, including the suggested “pregnancy.gov” website.

Personal details

Users would have the ability to set up a profile on the platform and enter their personal details.

Advocates

Advocates argue that the platform will not gather user data, but according to the bill, users have the option to “take an assessment… and provide consent to use the user’s contact information.”

Contact details

These contact details would enable “outreach via phone or email to follow up with users on additional resources that would be helpful for the users to review.”

Discouraging women

Additionally, the site will offer content with the intention of discouraging women from considering abortion as an option.

Pregnancy support centers

The website will feature a list of “pregnancy support centers” that are not allowed to mention any facility or healthcare provider who “performs, induces, refers for, or counsels in favor of abortions.”

Britt gained attention

In March, Britt gained attention for hosting the Republican National Committee’s response video to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech.

Promising conservative

The video aimed to showcase Britt as a promising conservative figure within the Republican Party but faced criticism from both political factions for her uncomfortable presentation and lack of substantial points.

New legislation

When she revealed her new legislation on social media, it sparked severe backlash from users. Some labeled it as “bad for women,” while others criticized her on-screen performance once more.
