I’ve said it many times, and I’ll say it again: the practice of abortion in our country is a scourge that deserves much more urgent attention.
It’s time we faced the fact that it is no less than first-degree premeditated murder for hire.
In spite of what the American people in general want, the abortion industry is fully supportive of ending the Hyde Amendment, and consequently, all of the 2020 Democrat candidates for president are all-in to end it and to top that, they want to force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions!
Published this week, a New York Times survey of the Democrat presidential candidates found that every single one would repeal the Hyde Amendment, which limits taxpayer funding for abortions through Medicaid.
Historically, the Hyde Amendment has received strong bipartisan support. Lawmakers have passed the amendment every year since 1976, largely preventing federal Medicaid dollars from paying for abortions. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld the amendment in 1980.
Research from the Charlotte Lozier Institute indicates that the amendment has saved more than 2 million babies’ lives from abortion in the past 40 years.
However, the Hyde Amendment is now a target of abortion activists who have moved from pro-choice to pro-abortion — forcing Americans not only to accept unlimited abortions before birth but also to pay for them. The Democratic Party platform calls for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment as well.
“The Hyde Amendment has effectively served as an abortion ban for those who cannot afford abortion care and all the expenses associated with it,” Maria Elena Pérez, deputy director at the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, told Fortune this week. “In our Latina/x community, we have seen women working in multiple low-paying jobs that do not provide health coverage.”
Democrat front-runner Elizabeth Warren said something similar on the campaign trail in June, re-framing the issue as a matter of equality for poor women who supposedly need to abort their unborn babies.
“Understand this, women of means will still have access to abortions,” Warren said at an MSNBC town hall in June. “Who won’t will be poor women. It will be working women and women who can’t afford to take off three days from work, and very young women. It will be women who have been raped and women who have been molested by someone in their own family.”
Joe Biden, also a leading contender for the Democrat presidential nomination, flip-flopped on the issue over the summer and now supports taxpayer-funded abortions, too.
Poor women and their unborn babies are the target, but evidence suggests these women want better pregnancy and parenting support, not abortions.
I think it’s truly frightening to think that the best candidates the Democrats can field categorically endorse mass murder of the innocent!
Equally disturbing is the fact that the mainstream news media (the propaganda arm of the Democrat party) continually gives airtime to the most radical voices who trumpet how proud they are and how far we’ve progressed and how enlightened we’ve become to be able to have “safe” abortions.
Are you KIDDING me?? There’s certainly nothing remotely safe for the unborn child! They DIE, for crying out loud! The practice of abortion needs to end — and end NOW!
It is with ZERO hesitation that I say that I will NEVER vote for a candidate for ANY office who supports abortion.
I don’t care if they’re running for Dogcatcher!
