Liberals, especially radical feminists, have staked out one issue on which they will tolerate no compromise. In fact, besides hating President Trump, this is the issue that defines who they are.
That issue would be abortion rights. And not just abortion rights, but the right to an abortion on demand for any reason or for no reason, paid for by the state.
Of all the legitimate health needs of women, it is not pregnancy care, nor well-baby care, nor any gynecological conditions that animate these progressive zealots. It is support for the ability of a pregnant women to have as many abortions as desired, at will, at the expense of the taxpayers that defines who they are. If true, misguided if not wicked thinking also informs their identity. And it has not been enough to make this “right” a free procedure for Americans. The Oregon House has just passed a bill that would grant free abortions to illegal aliens.
“Following the state House’s approval of this bill, the liberal leaders took no time in condemning President Donald Trump’s pro-life agenda.
“‘While the Trump Administration and Congressional Republicans in D.C. continue their efforts to slash access to women’s health, Democrats in the Oregon House today stood up to preserve and expand comprehensive reproductive health care to all Oregonians,’ the lawmakers said.”
Of course, this is all a fraud. Even the words they use betray the fact that they cannot come out and honestly call what they are supporting what it is. Instead, they claim to be supporting “comprehensive reproductive health care to all Oregonians.” Wrong.
In the first place, this is not a benefit to all Oregonians since about half are men.
But it’s the term “comprehensive reproductive health care” that is at least misleading, if not fraudulent. One can provide all sorts of reproductive health care without performing an abortion. Yet if abortion were not funded by this bill, you can guarantee that its supporters would abandon it immediately, even if it provided many benefits to pregnant women.
So the health of women is not the impetus behind this. And certainly not that of the unborn child. To be “comprehensive” it must include free abortion on demand for any woman who requests it. That’s what really matters to the left.
So they are cowards. If they wished to be truly honest they would name the bill the, “Freedom of Access to Abortion for All Women Act,” or something that actually describes the main point of the bill.
The Republicans, outnumbered, at least responded to this outrage.
“‘This highly contentious bill isn’t about health care or about people, it is a political gift card to Planned Parenthood,’ said Jonathan Lockwood, communications director for the Senate Republican Caucus.”
“‘This terrible legislation is just another example of how Oregon’s largest abortion provider’s only real concern is for their financial bottom line,’ Atteberry said. ‘The Oregon Health Authority testified [Thursday] that HB 3391-B will provide almost $500,000 more for abortions. Make no mistake: most of this money is going to Planned Parenthood.'”
When you think about this outrage, you have to wonder why the illegal immigrant community isn’t up in arms. Couldn’t their inclusion in this so-called health care initiative be construed to be an effort to reduce the number of their descendants living in the United States?
