Democrats approve bill that would fund abortions for the first time in decades

In order to get the Democratic nomination, President Biden reversed his long-held support for the Hyde Amendment, which bans federal funding of most abortions. So presumably, he would sign this bill.

According to the Washington Examiner:

The Democratic-led House of Representatives passed a spending bill on Thursday that would eliminate a 45-year-old stipulation included in spending packages that prohibits taxpayer money from funding abortions. The bill passed with a 219-208 vote.

House Democrats first advanced the Department of Health and Human Services spending package out of committee on July 12 without including the rider, known as the Hyde Amendment. President Joe Biden, who for decades opposed taxpayer funding of abortion, buckled to liberal pressure during his campaign and said he supported removing the Hyde Amendment.

The legislation in question, the Labor-HHS-Education spending bill, is part of the “minibus,” a more limited version of the omnibus spending packages that fund the entire government at once.

The Hyde Amendment bans federal funding from being used to cover the cost of abortions, except in cases of rape, incest, or endangerment of the woman’s life. The rider was also excluded from Biden’s $6 trillion budget request submitted in May. Under the Hyde Amendment, states can fund abortion services for the poor as long as they do not touch federal money.

    1. Millions of us are disgusted by any tax money used for murdering babies. How much further can the Democrat Party be from the bottom, of the deepest pit of Hell?

  1. Planned Parenthood and others who support abortion have often chanted ” My Body, My Choice” So why is that not true when it comes to the vaccine? Dems would love to mandate the vax. I am pro vax, but understand some oppose it for personal, religious or medical reason. That’s America.

    Also, why do we refer to Pro-Abortion as Reproductive Rights… is it not Non-Reproductive Rights?

    1. Harv, It would be referred to as “anti-life” if they were honest. Appreciate that you see both sides regarding the vaccine issue.
