Do you hear about the latest outrage from pro-Abortionists? They want the U.S. Government to pay for abortions!
quote:While several of her colleagues are trying to limit abortion, the extremist [Senator] from New Hampshire is hoping to expand it -- and at taxpayer expense! Yesterday, Shaheen tacked on an amendment to the Senate Foreign Operations bill that would force Americans to pay for the abortions of Peace Corps volunteers in the cases of rape, incest, or if the mother's life is at stake. If successful, Shaheen's amendment would implicate taxpayers in Peace Corps abortions for the first time since 1979, when it was outlawed.
If a Peace Corps volunteer was raped and the pregnancy might kill her, we would have to pay for the abortion! (Actually, the bill authorizes Peace Corps volunteers to buy health insurance that would cover abortions in those cases, but let's not quibble.) Imagine it--paying for an abortion to save a volunteer mother's life. Oh, the humanity!
If you are as outraged as I am, contact your Senator now! (I would, but I'm pretty sure she'll vote for the amendment, so I don't need to bother. )
