REPORT: Dems Introduce Legislation to ‘Repeal Funding Ban’ on Abortions in Other Countries

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.29.20

House Democrats introduced new legislation this week that would abolish a “funding ban” that prevents tax-payer dollars from providing abortions in other countries through US aid.

“Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) introduced legislation Wednesday that would repeal a decades-old policy that prevents U.S. foreign aid programs from providing funding for abortion services,” reports The Hill.

“The bill takes aim at the Helms Amendment, a 1973 law passed in the wake of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, that imposes anti-abortion restrictions on overseas aid,” adds the website.

“The Helms Amendment is a policy deeply rooted in racism,” Schakowsky said in a statement Wednesday. “It imposes our arbitrary and medically unnecessary abortion restrictions on international communities, allowing the United States to control the health care and bodily autonomy of billions Black and brown people around the world.”

ANOTHER EXCUSE: AOC Blames Twitter for Her OWN TWEET on Alabama Abortion Law

posted by Hannity Staff - 5.16.19

Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bizarrely blamed Twitter’s character limitations for her controversial tweet regarding Alabama’s new anti-abortion law; saying the regulations were behind her post that “spread misinformation.”

“The New York Democrat used the social media platform to criticize the law, which was signed by the governor on Wednesday and outlaws nearly all abortions in the state. The same law also makes performing an abortion a felony, punishable by up to 99 years or life in prison unless the mother’s health is at risk, with no exceptions for women impregnated by rape or incest,” reports Fox News.

“Alabama lawmakers are making all abortions a felony punishable w jail time, including women victimized by rape+incest,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a tweet. “Of course, no added punishments for rapists. It’s going to [Governor Kay Ivey’s] desk. She will decide the future of women’s rights in Alabama.”

The tweet immediately came under fire from users on social media; pointing out the law specifically states that women who undergo the procedure will not be subject to criminal or civil liability.

“Section 5. No woman upon whom an abortion is performed or attempted to be performed shall be criminally or civilly liable. Furthermore, no physician confirming the serious health risk to the child’s mother shall be criminally or civilly liable for those actions,” states the Alabama bill.

“It’s a felony punishable by jail, [including] cases of women pregnant by rape or incest. Twitter is 280 [characters] – read the context clues in grammar of the tweet,” she tweeted.

“But good to know you’re here to promote criminalizing medical providers aiding victims of rape and incest! good job.”

BERNIECARE: Sanders Says Abortion Not Just a ‘Privilege for Those Who Can Afford It’

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.05.19

Bernie Sanders raised eyebrows across the country on social media Thursday; stating abortion is a Constitutional right for all Americans and “not a privilege for those who can afford it.”

“Abortion is a constitutional right – not a privilege for those who can afford it,” posted the Senator on Twitter.

 

Sanders made a similar statement on “rights” last month; bizarrely arguing that 18-year-olds should be able to vote in the United States.

“If you’re 18, you should have the right to vote. End of discussion,” posted Sanders on social media.

 

His comments confused millions of Twitter followers, with one writing “There’s a debate?”

“I was 18 when I voted, I didn’t know this was a problem?” added another.
