Democrat Senators Demand More Abortion

Sep 16, 2017

Senator Richard Blumenthal wants Bernie Sanders’ “Medicare for All” proposal to include funding for abortions. Blumenthal was one of 15 senators to sign on to the single-payer plan on Wednesday. The senator “promises that the plan will eliminate the Hyde Amendment — which bars federal funds for abortion.” Speaking to reporters, Blumenthal said, “[T]he women of America . . . have been denied health care too long because of restrictions like the Hyde Amendment. Consider the Hyde Amendment history if we pass Medicare for All. And all those other restrictions on reproductive rights.” According to LifeNews, the Hyde Amendment may have save as many as “one million children from abortion.” If Democrats get their way on ending the Hyde Amendment “an estimated 33,000 more unborn babies” will be killed by abortion every year.
