Congressman Joseph Morelle (D-NY) took to the U.S. House floor Wednesday to argue for taxpayer dollars to kill babies in the womb. Morelle claimed it was a constitutional right and compared it with free speech and choosing a religion.

Life News reports:

“I do note that in my home state of New York, we’ve made the decision for many years to support women in poverty who seek reproductive rights,” Morelle said.

“Rights are granted to us under the Constitution. Those rights are as fundamental as any other right guaranteed to us under the Constitution. But we don’t have economic tests for rights in the United States. So if you have a right, you have a right.”

“We don’t say that you have the right to free speech as long as you can pay for it. We don’t suggest that the right to assemble, the right to have your grievances addressed by your government, the right to petition, the right to press or to select the religion and support the religion that you choose is subject to some kind of economic test. We believe the same should be true for reproductive rights.”

With this illogic it would be mandatory for the government to pay my expenses to sue them (address my grievances), hire people to gather recall signatures or start a talk radio show (free speech). If any of you libs think these are stupid, then you must also think forcing me to pay for your abortion is equally stupid. Or else you are pretty much a hypocrite – oh, I forgot, you’re a lib. My mistake.

good grief what an idiotic argument. Where does it say in the Constitution that I or any other American have to pay for the bad decisions that poor or wealthy people make in their lives. Abortion is not women’s health care, it is murder or an inconvenient child. These people are just plain evil.

God gave you a right to have children, then he said thou shall not kill.

OUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS ARE MORE IMPORTANT AND ARE IN PLAY. WE CAN USE THEM ANY TIME WE LIKE. ESPECIALLY FOR SCUM LIKE HIM. HIS MOTHER SHOULD HAVE SWALLOWED.

This must be a call to get persecuted since the democrats have silenced free speech for conservatives and are persecuting Christians and Jews. Abortion destroys the right to life for the human infant growing in the mothers womb. Sorry there is no justification for killing an unborn child of God.

It’s fine to kill babies…if SATAN is your tin-god. Just remember: the Muslims have no such illusions, do not believe in abortion and they are growing by leaps and bounds in post-Christian Europe. I have many fine Muslim friends, but I do not trust Islam, the religion / social contract / military system of totalitarianism. Everywhere it dominates, the ruler of human interaction is FEAR.

Don’t see anything in the constitution regarding abortion. The second amendment regarding free speech is being abused and censored.

The main thing that people must realize is we are all children of God, he loves us all with the greatest heart especially the babies born and unborn. Murdering babies in and outside the womb is the sacrifice to the democrats god, Satan!
God will bestow a reckoning on this planet very soon, we all will see the truth and punishment.
This will be a horrible thing to live through, to see those who reject him receive their punishment, but those strong in faith with the Holy Father and Lord Jesus Christ will come through it unscathed and happy and we will once again have a wonderful life!

To a Democrat, evil is as important as a moral value.

When has murder ever been right. A baby whether inside the womb or outside is still an individual. How evil to think it is ok to murder a baby who is defenseless. Be accountable for your actions.

And yet the right to abortion is definitely treated as far more important than the right to freedom of speech and religion… Go figure!
