Abortion is what this degree of conflict in our country is all about.
Democrats introduce bill to force taxpayer-funded abortions
WASHINGTON, D.C., March 14, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – A group of female Democrats in both the U.S. House and U.S. Senate have introduced legislation to fund elective abortions directly with taxpayer dollars through federal healthcare and insurance programs.
The Hyde Amendment is the language added to federal budgets every year that forbids most taxpayer dollars from funding abortions except for those in cases of rape, incest, or to save a mother’s life. While most Democrats grudgingly accept its yearly renewal and instead focus their efforts on defending federal funding to Planned Parenthood (through which taxpayers indirectly pay for abortions), pro-abortion activists have long dreamed of completely eliminating limits to abortion funding. On Tuesday, a group of Democrats re-introduced legislation to do just that.
Democrat Reps. Barbara Lee, Jan Schakowsky, and Diana DeGette are leading the re-introduction of the Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Insurance (EACH Woman) Act in the House of Representatives, with Sens. Tammy Duckworth and Patty Murray introducing it in the Senate, according to a press release on Lee’s website.
