After the Supreme Court made a historic ruling to preserve life by overturning Roe v. Wade, Democrats cried to the Biden administration to find new ways in killing innocent babies.
And they come up with what they thought was a brilliant plan by opening abortion services on federal lands.
During a Monday interview with The Washington Post, Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren suggested the Biden administration develop Planned Parenthood “tents” along the edges of national parks.
However, these ideas were ignorant of a major obstacle. Florida Representative Byron Donalds discussed the left’s position on abortion when compared to oil.
During an interview with Newsmax TV on Monday, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) reacted to Democratic proposals for the Biden administration to use federal lands to conduct abortion by pointing out that many Democrats have tried to block oil drilling on federal lands, something that would “help every mom in America. It’ll help every dad in America. They won’t do that, but they’ll open it up for abortion.”
Here’s what The Daily Caller pointed out:
Despite demands from several prominent Democrats, the federal government is prohibited from using taxpayer dollars to fund abortions.
The Hyde Amendment, first included in federal appropriations bills in 1976, prohibits the federal government from funding abortions unless “the life of the mother would be endangered if the fetus were carried to term or where the pregnancy is the result of an act of rape or incest.” Activists estimate that the Hyde Amendment prevents at least 60,000 abortions every year.
The amendment is named for Republican Illinois Rep. Henry Hyde, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee who championed it.
Although support for the amendment was initially bipartisan, Democrats in recent years have attempted to pass federal budgets that do not include the provision. President Joe Biden flip-flopped on support for the amendment during his 2020 presidential campaign, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi attempted to jettison the provision for an early COVID-19 relief package. Democratic West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin’s demand that the Hyde Amendment be included in a social spending package was a key factor in the breakdown in Build Back Better negotiations.
Well, this only shows that these Democrats have some studying up to do.
