DEMOCRATS PUSHING FOR TAXPAYER-FUNDED ABORTION

Lord, we pray that the biblical values that America was founded would prevail. We pray that you would be the center of this country. We pray for revival would flood America like never before in the name of Jesus. Would people radically encounter the one true living God!

Democrats recently took further action to potentially allow future taxpayer funding of abortions. 

A subcommittee in the House of Representatives approved spending legislation that did not include the Hyde Amendment or the Weldon amendment, both of which have been bipartisan measures for years. 

The Hyde amendment was named for Congressman Henry Hyde and was first passed in 1976. It essentially bans the use of federal funding for abortion services with some exceptions, including abortions that are done when a mother’s life is in danger, or in the case of incest or rape. States are still allowed to use their own Medicaid funds for abortions.

The Weldon amendment was originally passed in 2005 and states that “[n]one of the funds made available in this Act…may be made available to a Federal agency or program, or to a state or local government, if such agency, program, or government subjects any institutional or individual health care entity to discrimination on the basis that the health care entity does not provide, pay for, provide coverage of, or refer for abortions.” The measure protects pro-life groups from discrimination. 

The debate over the Hyde amendment has escalated in recent years. Republicans have attempted to pass legislation that would enshrine the Hyde amendment into law. At the same time, Democrats have tried pushing their own measures attempting to end the Hyde amendment. 

Americans, however, are still divided on the issue of abortion despite some of the messaging from the mainstream media. An AP-NORC poll released in June showed that 61% of Americans felt that abortion should be legal in most or all cases during the first trimester of pregnancy, but that number went down to 34% in the second trimester and 19% in the third trimester. 

When it comes to the Hyde amendment, it appears that many Americans support it. A recent Marist poll found that 58% of Americans said they opposed taxpayer funding of abortion. In 2016, a Politico-Harvard poll showed similar feelings among Americans with only 36% of likely voters saying they were in favor of allowing Medicaid funding to be used for abortion services.

Those who support getting rid of the amendment claim that it impacts low-income women in a more negative way than other people. Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) said she knows a lot of lawmakers on the other side of the aisle are concerned about it, but, she said, “repealing the Hyde amendment is the best thing we can do to support our mothers and families” and “help prevent, rather than penalize unwanted pregnancies and later, riskier and more costly abortions.”

Republicans have been notably critical of Democrats’ efforts to get rid of the amendment. Last week, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said that “senate Republicans are going to continue standing up for life, standing up for taxpayers, and standing up for the conscience rights of millions — millions — of Americans who don’t want the government laundering their hard-earned money to abortion providers.” . . .

Some have also pointed out that President Joe Biden used to be in favor of the Hyde amendment, but he shifted his position in 2019 during his presidential campaign. His campaign had previously said that he supported it, but after he was heavily criticized, he changed his view, pointing to Republican state legislatures passing pro-life legislation as a reason.

At the time, he said that he believed health care is a right and could “no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone’s ZIP code.” He added that he made “no apologies for the last position.”

How are you praying that life would be appreciated and valued in America? Let us know in the comments below!

  1. The next time Biden or any other political bozo refers to abortion (murder of an innocent child) as health care…be bold enough to challenge them (and don’t back down 1 inch) about the textbook definition (for centuries) of what “health care” means. I will leave it at that and encourage each of you to do a short study on what it means. As a retired teacher, I have found that the best way to train future warriors is to increase their knowledge and skills by encouraging them to “build their own fortress” based on actual facts and truth.
    The Hyde amendment should ALWAYS be included and should be law. Be relentless in letting those that are “representing you, the taxpayer”…. that you DO NOT SUPPORT removal of the Hyde amendment.

  2. Lord awaken the CHURCH to be united in standing for Life at conception truth. Help women take responsibility for prevention measures to avoid pregnancy and for others who suffer from sexual abuse or unplanned pregnancies I pray You will draw them to have an ultrasound or choose adoption as an alternative. Lord it is a heart issue, a sin issue so please have Your will, protect the innocent children.
    Lord may the Church support financially, physically these alternative pregnancy centers so many who cannot afford an ultrasound would get it for free.
    Lord I lay the leadership of this Nation at the foot of the cross. Remove the blindness, the deafness, the strongholds that are over them, the curruption that is held over them to be set free so the planned Parenthood would be shut down and destroyed.
    May many babies be saved Lord. In Jesus name. Amen

  3. We are not presenting our petitions before you based on our righteous acts, but based on your abundant compassion. Lord, hear! Lord, forgive! Lord, listen and act! My God, for your own sake, do not delay, because your city and your people bear your name” (Daniel 9:18–19).

  4. Father, You are God of Creation and You are God of Salvation. I pray we, Your saved, would be sanctified fully and entirely and kept in Your power alone. You say, “I am the LORD, and there is no other; there is no God but Me…It is I who made the earth and created man upon it…Turn to Me and be saved… By Myself I have sworn; truth has gone out from My mouth, A WORD THAT WILL NOT BE REVOKED: Every knee will bow before Me, every tongue will swear allegiance.” In humility and love, I pray for those who intend death for the lives of the unborn. Draw them Father, break their hearts, hear their confessions, and save them so they will “love You with all their heart and with all their soul and with all their mind.” Let them say, “children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward!” Jesus tells us, “with man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” I believe Jesus. Amen

    Isaiah 45, Matthew 22:36-40; Psalm 127:3; Matthew 19:26
