It’s the first REALLY big bill of the new administration…and it’s just exploding all over the internet.
Abortion is always a hot-button topic but expect the subject to become even more contentious after today.
And considering the shockingly vile atrocities of Planned Parenthood, so well documented in recent years, a great many Republicans and Conservatives are cheering this bill, while Democrats and Liberals are absolutely furious.
Remember, former president Barack Obama was not pro-Lifer; he did, in fact, sign the death warrant of millions of unborn babies just before leaving office. And Trump has already tackled the abortion issue overseas:
And now, the axe has fallen here in this country.
As reported by The Federalist Papers, the House of Representatives has voted to permanently ban taxpayer funding of abortion. The official tally was 238 to 183.
“House Resolution 7, or the “No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act” was introduced by Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey. It makes permanent the Hyde Amendment. Up until now, the amendment, prohibiting federal funding of abortions through Medicaid, was up for constant annual renewal.
Pro-life groups estimate the Hyde Amendment has saved more than two million lives since it was passed 40 years ago. LifeSiteNews reports that six in ten Americans don’t support taxpayer funding for abortions.”
Democrats aren’t pleased with this, obviously. But Pro-Life Congress members have pointed out that this new legislation simply etches in stone what is annually renewed by Congress and furthermore, the bill “allows for transparency on abortion coverage in healthcare plans.”
Recently, Rep. Liz Cheney R-WY slammed those using the Women’s March as the implication that marches speak for ALL women, reminding us that Pro-Life feminists weren’t allowed. That’s just more leftist hypocrisy, plain and simple.
This still has to pass the Senate and President Trump also has to sign the bill for it to become law, but that’s likely to happen. And Trump obviously loves issuing orders Obama and other Democrats absolutely LOATHE.
The bottom line is that if you are on the side of Life, you will cheer this news. And if you’re sick and tired of being ignored and even marginalized by the liberals, you’re going to cheer even harder.
