Abortion remains legal in the U.S. and probably will for a long time even though it is an issue that severely compromises any agreement. You are either Pro Life or Pro Choice. It is hard to straddle the issue or stay on the fence.
However, there is a part of this issue that is even more basic – can the government use taxpayer funds to pay for abortions?
There was past legislation (Hyde Amendment) that said that no taxpayer funds could be used for abortions. In the ensuing years, this has been violated and Congressmen and women on the Pro Life side of the issue brought a vote to the floor to make sure that taxpayer funds would not be used for abortions.
The House Bill 7, linked, shows the result of the vote which was 55% to 44% against the bill that would have ensured that ObamaCare would not fund abortions with taxpayer money.
In the House, the New Mexico delegation was split. Michelle Lujan-Grisham and Ben Ray Lujan voted to continue using taxpayer money for abortions. Steve Pearce voted to stop using taxpayer money for abortions. In the Senate, should a comparable bill advance, Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich would vote as their Democrat counterparts.
So, for all Democrats out there who have some concerns about abortion, do you want to continue to support politicians that vote to spend your tax money on abortions?
That is moving dangerously close to making you complicit in death.
Do you want to leave all these decisions to the State, who have their own agenda that has nothing to do with morals, ethics, or spirituality?
