Well, it’s official:
The Democratic party – and its standard-bearer, Hillary Clinton – want to force you to pay for abortions.
They’ve long wanted this, of course. But in the just-completed Democratic National Convention, they went further. They passed a platform resolution that says:
“We will continue to oppose—and seek to overturn—federal and state laws and policies that impede a woman’s access to abortion, including by repealing the Hyde Amendment.” [emphasis added].
The Hyde Amendment is the annual provision in federal Health and Human Services funding bills that bars any federal tax dollars from being used to pay for elective abortions.
It’s bad enough they want to return America to the days of unlimited abortion on demand, which would kill even more unborn children.
But now they want you to participate in that killing by forcing you to foot the bill!
They think they can get away with it because most Americans don’t yet know about this platform plank. That shouldn’t surprise you – after all, have you heard the media say much about it?
No, they’ve been silent, because polls show most Americans adamantly oppose forcing people to pay for the destruction of innocent unborn babies with their tax dollars.
Public attitudes against funding of elective abortions are so strong that if we can inform enough Americans just what Clinton and the Democrats are proposing, the public will rise up and tell Congress “NO!”
But we need to inform them now! Clinton, her vice presidential pick, Tim Kaine, and many other Democratic candidates are out on the campaign stump, making promises to powerful abortion lobbies like Planned Parenthood, NARAL, and others that they will change current policy and force ordinary Americans to pay for elective abortions.
We can’t let them do that!
