The House Democrats on Thursday slapped down the Hyde Amendment from its spending bill that would spare taxpayers from being forced to fund abortions. 

Life News reports:

During a House Appropriations Committee meeting, U.S. Rep. Tom Cole, R-Oklahoma, led Republicans in calling for the Hyde Amendment to be restored.

Cole introduced a measure to add the Hyde Amendment to federal spending bills and “protect the lives of unborn babies and the conscience rights of Americans.” He and other Republicans pointed to polls that consistently show a strong majority of Americans oppose taxpayer funding for abortions, including the low-income women whom Democrats claim to want to help.

However, Democrats control Congress, and they easily defeated the amendment. The vote was 27-32 with one Democrat, U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, joining Republicans to support the pro-life measure, according to Politico reporter Alice Miranda Ollstein.

The Hyde Amendment prohibits taxpayer funding for most abortions in Medicaid and other federal programs. It is credited with saving about 2.4 million babies’ lives, and polls consistently show strong public support for it.

“Biden-Pelosi Democrats had the chance to foster unity by preserving the Hyde Amendment and other longstanding, popular policies that protect unborn babies and mothers,” said Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Instead, they shamefully doubled down on extremism, throwing out decades of bipartisan consensus.”

Makes my blood boil. Any group of people that takes joy in killing millions of bAbies should not be running our country. Horrible. If they will kill babies, who is next…old people, sick people, etc.

Who is next? Andy Cuomo answered that question. All those who support defunding the police answer that question. All those who went along with the “peaceful” Summer of love protests answered that question. Notice the common thread? Please bring back law and order to our country. Bring back respect for our fellow man. Get rid of these extreme left-wing groups and all who support them.
