Pro-abortionists present laundry list of demands to fellow pro-abortionists Biden and Harris, starting with eliminating the Hyde Amendment

By now, there is probably no pro-lifer who does not understand what is at stake January 5th in Georgia.  Simply put, if the Democrats were to win both contests–pro-life incumbent Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue are matched up against pro-abortion Democrats the Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, respectively–there would be 50 Republican Senators and 50 Democrat Senators. That would leave pro-abortion Vice President in waiting Kamala Harris to cast the tie-breaking vote. 

In a word, what takes place a week from tomorrow will decide if pro-abortion Joe Biden has, in addition to a Democrat majority in the House, functional control of the Senate.

There is a laundry list of items pro-abortionists in and out of Congress wants passed—or undone. A letter from the Democratic Women’s Caucus (DWC) to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris is a reminder of how much pro-abortionists want; the breadth and depth of their anti-life proposals is chilling.

But what understandably is receiving the most attention is their lust to end the Hyde Amendment. They fully understand, as do we, that opening the federal funding spigot, which the Hyde Amendment all but completely shut off, means hundreds of thousands of additional abortions each and every year. It makes their two-sizes-too-small hearts go pitter patter.

Take this piece written for NBC News by Sahil Kapur.

Under the headline, “Democrats promise Biden-era abortion showdown over Hyde Amendment,” Kapur offers the competing comments of pro-abortion Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., who is set to chair the House Appropriations Committee, and pro-life Senate Appropriations Chair Richard Shelby, R-Alabama.

As we discussed last week. Rep. DeLauro’s position is that choosing not to pour tax payers dollars into elective abortions “is a discriminatory policy.” By contrast. Sen. Shelby told NBC News, “The Republican caucus would resist it,” adding, “We’ve had the Hyde Amendment a long time. And I think it’s pretty clearly embedded in the fabric of our legislation. I support the Hyde Amendment.”

For years Joe Biden supported the Hyde Amendment. Last year, literally in the space of a day, he went from reaffirming his support to offering the nonsensically comment that “If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone’s ZIP code.” (Someone fed him that line, believing—correctly—that the mainstream media would not bother to point out that the Hyde Amendment has nothing to do with zip codes.) 

Selling out to increase the chances of winning his party’s presidential nomination proved irresistible.

Which brings us back to Georgia. NRLC is going all-out to make sure pro-abortionists do not win the January 5th run-offs.
