Who sees a national health crisis rapidly unfolding, American families scrambling in hysteria, desperately buying anything they can to prepare for the worst and has the epiphany: “What an advantageous opportunity that’s fallen into my lap, now’s my chance to fund abortions!” Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, that’s who. At least the Wicked Witch of the West was upfront about her intentions. Is there no integrity left in the business of evil these days?
Responding to the coronavirus crisis, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spent part of the week negotiating alongside U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to establish a bipartisan emergency spending bill. This $8.3 billion-dollar bill would essentially provide financial relief to those affected by the coronavirus. What seemed to be an incredible move by Congress taking immediate action and uniting to provide for the American people turned sour when the proposed legislation was discovered to contain a mandate that would secure up to $1 billion dollars of federal funding for abortions.
The Daily Caller reported, “White House officials say this would set a precedent of health spending without protections outlined in the Hyde Amendment. […] The Hyde Amendment blocks clinics that perform abortions from receiving federal funding, and Democrats have pushed the Trump administration to end it since he was elected in 2016.” Considerably convenient timing for the left to exploit the American people in need during this national emergency.
After haggling for numerous provisions that ultimately stalled the development of this emergency spending bill, Pelosi’s commitment to hastily push it forward shined in a brazen display of courage when she strolled into the spotlight to inform the American people of the delay (due to the republicans) and pressured the White House, “Families have needs. We don’t need 48 hours. We need to just make a decision to help families right now.” She went on to say if there are complaints about parts of the bill people should, “save it for another day. Right now, we have to find our common ground, work together to get this done as soon as possible. I’m not sticking around because they don’t want to agree to language,” Pelosi says in reference to republicans’ opposition to the initial draft of the bill. Hurry up and sign on the dotted line to save everyone! Except the unborn, the forever casualty of the left. Always counted out, unless it’s to fund the termination of their potential life, provided for by the American taxpayer of course.
Pelosi stepped out again and held another press conference on Friday crying out for the American families to be put first. Let’s ask the question most people are thinking: how does combatting the coronavirus with abortions benefit the American family? Surely everyone that’s truly suffering from this national emergency appreciates her creativity in seizing the opportunity to use them as a political bargaining chip. It comes as no surprise that the Orange County Democratic Representatives, Katie Porter, Harley Rouda, and Gil Cisneros, all fell in line behind Pelosi taking to social media to support the immediate passing of this bill- all in the name of putting families first of course. This trio typically follows Pelosi’s lead voting 100% of the time in agreement with what she says. (Projects ProRepublica) If we’re being honest, to Pelosi’s credit, this whole exploitation of the innocent and vulnerable amidst a national health crisis to advance a billion dollar abortion funding agenda, is in fact very on brand for the left.
