The Hyde Amendment prevents federal funds from being used to fund most abortions.
But Democrats want to eliminate the Hyde Amendment.
And you won’t believe the justification Nancy Pelosi just gave for supporting taxpayer funded abortion in America.
Since 1976, the Hyde Amendment, which simply prohibits federal funds from being used to fund most abortions, has been included in annual appropriations bills on a bipartisan basis.
Not only has it been passed through both Republican and Democrat-controlled Congresses, but the Hyde Amendment was also upheld by the Supreme Court in 1980.
But if Nancy Pelosi gets her way, 40 years of precedent could be overturned, allowing federal funds to once again flow into abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood.
And you won’t believe Nancy Pelosi’s justification for wanting to overturn the Hyde Amendment.
Even though the Catholic Church adamantly opposes abortion, according to Nancy Pelosi, her Catholic faith is the reason why she believes taxpayers should be forced to fund abortions.
“As a devout Catholic and mother of five in six years, I feel that God blessed my husband and me with our beautiful family – five children in six years almost to the day,” began Pelosi.
“But that may not be what we should – and it’s not up to me to dictate that that’s what other people should do, and it’s an issue of fairness and justice for poorer women in our country,” she added.
Of course, even though Joe Biden supported the Hyde Amendment during his time in the U.S. Senate, facing pressure from the radical Left, Biden reversed his position during the 2020 campaign.
However, not all Democrats are going along with Pelosi’s push to abolish the Hyde Amendment.
Democrat West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin and Republican Roger Wicker (R-MS) just sent a bipartisan letter to the Senate Appropriations Committee urging them to protect the Hyde Amendment and maintain the “long-standing provision” in the Fiscal Year 2022 bill.
With Democrats already struggling to reach a bipartisan compromise on Biden’s multi-trillion “infrastructure” spending bill, Nancy Pelosi’s attempt to do away with the Hyde Amendment could cause even more headaches for Democrats in Congress.
