Regardless if you come down on the pro-life or the pro-abortion side of the issue, we should all be opposed to the government funding abortions via tax payer dollars. I believe that abortion is an abhorrent act and the absolute worst possible decision any woman can make in regards to her pregnancy, but I’ve never believed that the Federal government should be involved with this issue in anyway — abolishing, endorsing, prohibiting, or funding.
But, the Federal government believes, more than anything, in spending other peoples money. And in redistributing tax payer money to people who did not earn it.
All this to say — if you want an abortion. then you should find your own damned way to pay for the murder of the child growing in your womb. Don’t make me pay for your bad decisions and choices. And I’m not alone in my belief.
A majority of Americans object to the use of taxpayer money for funding abortion, according to numerous polls — including a survey CNN conducted in early April showing Americans oppose public funding of abortion by a margin of 61% to 35%.
And, it looks like at least the House is serious about making it happen:
The House of Representatives today approved a complete ban on taxpayer funding of abortions that ensures abortions are not directly funded in any federal governmental program or department.
The legislation combines several policies that must be enacted every year in Congressional battles and puts them into law where they will not be in jeopardy of being overturned every time Congress changes hands from pro-life lawmakers to those who support abortions.
The House passed HR 3, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, on a 251-175 vote with Republicans voting 235-0 for the bill and Democrats voting 175-16 against it.
Congressman Chris Smith, a New Jersey Republican who is the lead sponsor of the bill, informed the House that a study by the Guttmacher Institute, the pro-abortion former research apparatus of Planned Parenthood, released a study noting that one-quarter of women who otherwise would have had abortions chose to give birth when taxpayer dollars were not available to pay for abortions of their children.
Of course, this has no chance of getting out of the Senate, and even if it did, Obama — the most pro-abortion President ever — has already said he would veto it. Which means that we’ll likely have to wait until 2012 when the GOP takes back the Senate and the Presidency to make this happen.
