The St. Louis County Council has rejected a pro-abortion measure to spend $1.25 million in taxpayer funds to kill babies in abortions.

Councilwomen Lisa Clancy and Kelli Dunaway, both Democrats, proposed a measure to misuse COVID funds to pay for women to travel to other states to have abortions. Missouri is one of a dozen states that have an abortion ban in place to protect women and children from abortions.

But, as a local news report indicates, the vote “failed by a vote of 4-3 when one of the council’s four Democrats joined with three Republicans, who warned the measure would invite a legal challenge from Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt.”

Clancy and Dunaway proposed to use federal American Rescue Plan Act money to pay for transportation, child care and other logistical help for women seeking abortions outside Missouri as well as help address infant nutrition needs amid the nationwide formula shortage.

Too bad the DIMM didn’t just oppose it on the merits rather than worrying about a challenge. Using taxpayers’ money to kill babies is INHUMAN.

Those Marzist commie city council members
who voted to abort babies should be in prison for breaking laws to use in appropriate funds to klil babies.
This should go to the top and use any means possible to put a halt to corrupt politicians.
who abuse there office. Jail them and throw away the keys. plus ban them for ever holding office again.

Looks like two constitutionally elected St. Louis County officials proposed criminal activity. I wonder how forgiving these two extremists would be if the other side proposed criminal activity in support of a conservative issue. I wonder what other crimes these two radical politicians would commit to satisfy their personal preferences. I wonder how common in St. Louis this willingness is to commit crimes.

When those that have done nothing to warrant death are condemned to die, when does our own lives mean anything? For those that wear the my body, my choice shirts, I ask when does the baby get to be heard?
