The Democrat coronavirus spending bill could be used to fund abortions

The money that will be handed out as the result of the coronavirus bill that the U.S. Senate is getting ready to pass could end up being used to fund abortions, Breitbart reports

That’s because the bill has a significant omission: the Hyde Amendment.

The Hyde Amendment, with some exceptions, stops government funds, i.e. taxpayer money, from being used in support of abortions.

The Amendment has been included in bills just about every year since it was passed in 1977. But, it is not included in the coronavirus bill that the U.S. Senate is going to consider.

This “will get your blood pressure up”

The Hyde Amendment’s absence was first revealed by Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT), the head of the Senate Pro-Life Caucus. On Thursday, Daines released a video on Twitter talking about this fact.

“Here’s one that will get your blood pressure up,” Daines said. “$400 billion that has no protections to ensure we don’t have taxpayer dollars spent for abortions. $400 billion that could be used to fund abortions paid for by United States taxpayers.”

That’s because, as Daines pointed out, the Hyde Amendment was not included in the bill passed last week by the House of Representatives.

Reps. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), Virginia Fox (R-NC), and Jackie Walorski (R-IN), all attempted to insert the Hyde Amendment in the bill. The move was supported by 206 members of the House. But, the House Rules Committee refused to let the amendment proposed by Rodgers, Fox, and Walorski be put before the House for a vote. And so, the Hyde Amendment was not included in the bill.

It should be noted that the Helms Amendment, which is just like the Hyde Amendment, except it prevents foreign policy funds from supporting abortions abroad, was also excluded from the bill.

It’s one of many problems with the bill

Republicans have been referring to the coronavirus bill that the Democrats are likely to pass through Congress, considering that they are using reconciliation and thus only need a simple majority of 51 in the Senate, as a “liberal wishlist.”

As several commentators have pointed out, only a small portion of the funds in the bill up for consideration actually would provide economic relief to the public. The overwhelming majority of the funds go elsewhere, with a large portion that will not even be distributed until 2022, which could be after it is needed.

The Senate is expected to vote on the latest coronavirus bill by Marth 14th at the latest. That is when the unemployment relief from previous bills runs out.

  1. Go to hell Pelosi and Schummer. This is not about killing unborn babies it’s about trying to save people from the covid 19. How dare you Pelosi and shame on you. You will pay one day. God sees all. Prepare for hell Pelosi, Schummer and Biden needs to be in a nursing home. Stop this politician’s if you love and give a damn about America and her people.

  2. Our tax dollars should NOT go to pay for murder! The senate should send this bill back and demand the Hyde ammendment be included, cut funding for planned parenthood, or refuse to vote on it! Come on republicans, grow a pair and demand results! Don’t let Piglosi have her way!!!

  4. It’s so ugly to do! Sneaking abortion into the hue bill!!
    I pray everyone who voted for it will have God’s wrath to deal with!! That won’t be pretty!!

  5. Sad they kill babies but give money to illegal immigrants.May God step in an expose all the corruption in Congress.That is not Covid relief and neither is taking taxpayers money to pay illegals when they don’t pay taxes.

  6. When did the government make it official that taxpayers have to pay for abortion…. if that’s so…. shouldn’t the government pay for heart attack or even hair transplants for that matter… if a woman wants an abortion and they should pay for it not the taxpayers

  7. You voted for this, stop complaining now. They told you what they were planning to do and they are doing it. Are you that stupid. There are a lot more coming. I was warning people about this and they would not listen to me. It, not the fact the republics need to grow a set, they don’t have the numbers they are trying to hold the line. People need to call your congressman and tell them to stop the BS.

  8. There’s only 2 modes of thought the left… big government telling you what rights you can have, or the right making law for individual rights to be attained, you get to decide, but don’t think that 100 Democratic Presidents will do it differently ( they won’t)

  9. If only we would repent for our ungodly and wicked ways. God is so willing to forgive. Time is drawing near that Jesus will be coming soon to rapture his people. I do not want to be left behind. Do you? Know that God is giving all of us a chance to mend things with him. Think about where you are with God. Spend time in prayer. Fast and pray. God will honor all who will do this.
    Love like never before. Give like never before. Most of all worship him daily and thank him for what he has done for you even if you did not ask. He is an awesome God.

  10. I had this page bookmarked a while in the past but my PC crashed. I have since gotten a new one and it took me a while to come across this! I also in fact like the design though.

  11. Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that its nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks.
