National Abortion Funding: Democrats in Senate Support It, But “Don’t Go There”
December 10, 2009
I suppose it shouldn’t surprise us that the Democrats in the Senate want to include abortion mega-funding under the auspices of “health care” and voted to do so. The interesting thing is that they did so in a manner so as to avoid debate.
The Democrats won’t debate it because they know they will lose in the court of public opinion, as demonstrated in various polls. Indeed, CNN has reported that fully “[s]ix in 10 Americans favor a ban on the use of federal funds for abortion”. Moreover, in these economic times, I highly doubt that Americans are all that eager to see tax money used to fund elective abortion and line the pockets of Planned Parenthood.
As word gets out about this, the healthcare bill will be put in jeopardy. Hopefully word spreads quickly across the blogosphere.
