Stoplight on The Federal Funding of Abortion

We can thank Congressman Bart Stupak for his un-principled stand by caving in and voting for Obamacare after being "assured" that President Obama's executive order would prohibit the spending of federal tax dollars on the funding of abortions.  Surprise! The reality of it is that there already is to be federal dollars spent in the murder of innocent unborn life. I knew I heard that warning bell going off quite loudly back when this un-Constitutional law was being debated.

Those of us who were able to read between the lines were able to discern that this law was evil in the fact that it would have no respect for human life, not only from the perspective of our unborn, but for the elderly and chronically infirm that will ultimately be denied health care through rationing of limited resources that by necessity will result from this pernicious law.  Such lack of respect for the dignity of Divinely-given life will indeed come back to haunt us as a nation as we will reap what we have sown.

I pray that the good people of America will see fit to elect individuals this Fall in sufficient numbers to not only repeal this law, but to be able to over-ride the presidential veto that would surely follow that repeal.
In the meantime, we need to all be listening for those warning bells!

Of course, there is no federal funding of abortion. The Hyde Amendment has prevented that.

I think you will need another issue to get hysterical about for the fall.

But, I would argue that there should be federal funding for abortion. For one thing, it is a legal procedure. For the second thing, certain tax payers are not able to simply refuse to pay for things they don't like.

I didn't support the Iraq War, yet my taxes funded something I was completely, 100% morally opposed to -- and it was illegal.

Conservatives need to realize they don't get an automatic veto on where federal money can and can't be spent no more than liberals do.

Splash, watch the embedded video. Pennsylvania already will get $160 million which can be used to fund any legal abortion in the state.

Funding abortion should not even be a political issue, sir. It is about natural law and human rights in their most fundamental form.

Our founding document as a nation stated that we were "endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

Our country has slouched far too closely to embracing a culture of death. Not only should we recognize the inherrent evil of killing the truly innocent unborn with federal funding, but a constituional amendment that reiterates and supports our Founders statement in the Declaration of Independence should and hopefully one day will be enacted so that all life that has indeed been so endowed by God is acknowledged and protected, sir.

The video is a misrepresentation of fact. It is yet another attempt to confuse and mislead the public by rabid, fundamentalist, anti-choice zealots.

And as far as the funding of abortion, I refer you to my previous answer.

I do not understand how one can support "legalized" infanticide.

I certainly cannot understand how one can say that this evil should be funded with tax-payer money.

No good ever comes from killing the innocent unborn.

Just think what could have been had Roe v. Wade never invented such an atrocious "right" that was never in or intended to be in the dictates of the Constitution.

How many Ghandi's, Jonas Saulk's, or just regular ole good Moms and Dads have we killed in the name of abortion? Have we killed the baby that would one day grow up and discover the cure for Aids or Cancer?

Just from an economic sense, the millions of aborted babies we killed could have been productive citizens that were paying taxes to offset the costs of providing social security and medicare to the retiring Baby Boomers.

There is no good that comes from abortion, and certainly no honor to a government that would fund such a horrific practice.

Further, most women that have gone through the procedure typically have great regret and guilt of having done so. I don't hate the women that have done so. I pity them and pray for them.
