Following the passage of the Women's Health Protection Act in the House of Representatives, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) slammed lawmakers including Rep. Deb Dingell outside the Capitol building for supporting the law.

As lawmakers gathered for a photo-op on the steps of the Capitol building, Greene is heard shouting at them: "You should all be ashamed." As Greene starts to walk away, Dingell throws an inaudible comment towards Greene.

"Killing a baby up until birth is a lack of civility. It's called murder," Greene responded. "Hey, how about the border down there, lack of civility? How about lack of laws or protecting and upholding our constitution?" Greene continued.

"We have lots of laws we follow. You should practice the basic thing you're taught in church, respect your neighbors," Dingell yelled back.

"Taught in church? Are you kidding me?" responded Greene. "Try being a Christian and supporting life."

"Watch your step lady. You're going to fall down," Greene is heard saying after another unintelligible comment from Dingell. "Control yourself."

The interaction comes after the Democrat-controlled house voted 218  -211 largely along party lines for the act, which would protect abortion services and prevent restrictions on the procedure that many states have blocked much of the access to, according to Reuters.

The Senate will vote on the legislation "in the very near future," Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement.

Reuters reported that the act is not expected to pass in the Senate, which is evenly divided amongst parties. To get the law to pass, Democrats would need at least 10 Republicans to support the law.

"Republican Senator Susan Collins, a moderate who supports abortion rights, has said she opposes it. She said the House bill would weaken exceptions provided to healthcare providers who refused to perform abortions on moral or religious grounds," reported Reuters.
