We’ve been telling you for months about one of the Obama Administration’s priorities … taxpayer funding of abortions. The Administration is promoting health care “reform” that includes mandated abortion coverage - paid for by taxpayers. But they are also determined to undo all of the laws that have protected you and me from having our tax dollars used to pay for the destruction of unborn babies.
You’ll remember that Obama began the process shortly after he was elected by issuing an Executive Order that released federal tax dollars for the promotion of abortion overseas. Now, the Administration has set its sights on undoing the Dornan Amendment which has prohibited taxpayer-funded abortions in the District of Columbia for many years. If fact, the Administration has specifically asked Congress to repeal the Dornan Amendment.
There are a number of other laws that have protected taxpayers from paying for abortions such as the Hyde Amendment and others. All of these laws are now in grave jeopardy.
