1. Tax dollars will pay for abortions.
Shortly after the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions were announced in January of 1973, Congress passed two riders ensuring that taxpayer funds—with exceptions for the life of a mother, and later, rape and incest—would not be used for abortions.
The Hyde Amendment, adopted in 1976, prevents federal taxpayer dollars from directly funding abortions in the U.S., while the Helms Amendment, adopted in 1973, prevents taxpayers from funding abortions overseas.
2. Citizens will be forced to promote abortions.
A year before her more recent accusation that half of Donald Trump’s supporters are a “basket of deplorables” and “irredeemable,” Hillary Clinton compared pro-life Americans to Jihadi “terrorist groups,” in open hostility to 58 percent of all Americans who oppose abortions in all or most situations.
Fit into a larger context, Clinton’s intolerance toward pro-life Americans lines up with new state laws in California and Illinois that have required pro-life citizens, including those working at pregnancy help centers and medical clinics, to speak a state-sponsored message in favor of abortion.
