Of course: House Dems slip abortion language into spending bill but no money for border wall

House Democrats have inserted language into a spending bill the chamber is expected to vote on later today aimed at ending the current partial shutdown that expands access to abortion but contains zero dollars for POTUS Donald Trump’s border wall.

The measure repeals a provision called for by the president requiring foreign nongovernmental organizations to certify they won’t “perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning.”

The provision, known as the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy, once was called the Mexico City Policy, or known as the “global gag rule” by opponents.

In addition, the bill increases funding by $5 million for the UN’s Population Fund, to $37.5 million. Pro-life groups opposed the program because they note it participates in coercive abortions and involuntary sterilizations, the Washington Examiner reports.

Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the anti-abortion Susan B. Anthony List, said in a statement Democrats were “already trying to foist a radical pro-abortion agenda on the nation.”

“A strong majority of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion,” she said, noting further that repealing the president’s policy on nongovernmental organizations would make “taxpayers complicit in the exportation of abortion and destruction of countless unborn children around the world.

“This is unconscionable and we oppose the bill in the strongest terms,” Dannenfelser added.

Democrats will also introduce a second bill to reopen the government that allegedly addresses “border security” but is sans wall funding.



Neither measure has much chance of passing, given Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s statement earlier noting that border security bills without the president’s requested wall funding are dead on arrival.

“The legislation that the House Democrats are reportedly planning to introduce and vote on tomorrow will not be a serious contribution to the negotiations that are ongoing between the administration and the incoming Democratic majority in the House,” McConnell said Wednesday.

“It isn’t comprehensive, it ignores the needs of border security, it’s exactly the kind of proposal you’d expect if the incoming House Democrats are choosing to stage a political sideshow rather than doing the hard work of helping govern the country. In other words, a total non-starter.”

And the president wouldn’t sign it anyway.

All of which goes to prove, again, that Democrats really aren’t serious about protecting the country or ensuring that Border Patrol agents currently fending off thousands of migrants are doing so without getting paid.

“They’re not being compensated at all right now. I mean, these men and women are working without being paid and they’re putting their lives on the line for their country,” former Acting ICE Directory Thomas Homan told Fox News guest host Jason Chaffetz. “They’re doing the best job they can. They do it all to protect this border.”

      I hope he does. When that happens, there’s no more identity-bluring on the left and political hypocrisy from everywhere. When it happens, everyone can walk outside in their true colors, and know who their enemies are.

      • I do not want enemies, I want neighbors of all colors, all languages, all peoples groups. BUT, I do not want them taking my freedoms away with their culture, their laws. They are coming here legally to live not to turn my nation into the nation they just vacated. I do not want them bringing in disease that has been eradicated here. I do not want terrorists brought in either. I do not want more drugs and gang members brought in either. I want legal working taxpaying neighbors. We have plenty on welfare here already, we do not need more. You cannot empty all people into this land. As wealthy as this nation is it cannot and should not be responsible to foot the bill for the rest of the world. Make your land better, make your life better right where you are. Imagine all the rest of the world empty and living in North America, on top of each other, no breathing room, no elbow room. The world would tip.

    I am so sick of Pelosi & Schumer and the entire democratic party They are not for the people but only to obstruct any and all Trump requests. They vote for liars and praise them to the nines. They are so hypocritical and I do not think they will change just because a # of women were voted in. Good luck with that, I have yet to work with women or female bosses who are out only for themselves not their employees and gossip and back stab anyone they do not like or are intimidated by. Women are not and never have been mentors to their own sex. At any rate if Pelosi & Schumer and their ilk do not see the need for a wall then the people who believe in it will help to fund it. As for slipping in abortion payment by taxpayers I am totally against it and I am sure I am not alone. The DNC should worry about the # of future voters they kill with abortion – never mind that it is morally wrong, and killing our country.

  5. LOL! VETO!

    It is so sad that the majority of western females hate God and anything righteous. They got us removed from the Garden of Eden and since they have gotten the vote in the U.S. we have turned into a raging hysterical baby butchering sodomite promoting socialist immoral police state.

    • They were educated to be that way. IF they knew anything else and chose to follow, life would be better for them, their daughters and their lands.

    • Actually, it was Adam’s sin that lost Eden for humanity.

  7. If Democrats faithfully practiced Abortionism they would demand and fund a 2,000 mile long abortion center.
