I regret to inform you that this morning the last pro-life Democratic holdout in the Senate, Ben Nelson (D-NE), publicly caved in to a "pro-life compromise" authored by Bob Casey (D-PA) and Harry Reid (D-NV).There are very few "smoke-filled rooms" anymore, but they've been more than adequately replaced by smoke-and-mirrors charades. This is one of them. The senators lie and babies die. Where have I heard something like that before?
This so-called "pro-life compromise" dresses up taxpayer funding of abortions with more fancy language, more conscience protections, and more federal funding for assistance to teenagers who are pregnant. The "compromise" also forces all states to carry a health care plan that does not offer abortion coverage and allows the states to "opt out" of having to carry a plan that covers abortion funding. ...
Unfortunately, the citizens of any state that "opts out" will not be exempt from paying federal taxes, which will be used to fund plans that cover abortions in other states. This compromise forces you and me, no matter what state we live in, to fund abortions, and SBA List utterly rejects it.
Worse still, the babies don't die, nor are the killed in combat for which they volunteered, they are methodically and clinically murdered by people who make a living doing such things.
Worse still, you and I will be financing their murders.
God help us.
