Senate Democrats Vow Abortion Bills Block Note How They LIE About What Federal Funding Means!

The Tuesday press conference was a warning shot aimed at a pair of House bills.

Senate Dems vow abortion bills block

The Senate’s fiercest abortion rights supporters vowed to block two measures Republicans are pushing in the House from passage in the upper chamber.

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) told reporters “I do think we’ll have 41” votes necessary to block legislation backed by some members of House GOP leadership that would further restrict federal funds for abortions. Boxer was referring to a procedural maneuver that would require 60 votes to get a bill to the floor.

The Democrats’ Tuesday news conference was a warning shot aimed at bills sponsored by GOP Reps. Chris Smith of New Jersey and Mike Pence of Indiana that will both be heard by committees this month. Smith’s bill would eliminate any federal funds for abortion, while Pence’s legislation would prohibit federal funds for any organization that provides abortions.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell told POLITICO that he would “take a look at what the House sends over and see what’s appropriate,” but his spokesman said the GOP senator opposes federal funding for abortion — a position that puts him in line with many House Republicans who support the anti-abortion measures.

But Senate Democrats, including Boxer, fear that if the House passes either bill, Republicans would fold them into a larger must-pass bill — effectively forcing their chamber’s hand.

Frankel makes my stomach turn over. He is a slimy person. His arrogance knows no bounds.

Of course tax money will be used to fund abortions. These Dems are lying through their teeth.

This is why we are headed for a Democracy. Where An unscrupolous Majority, i.e., Democrats, can have a say in how your life is run, permitted and now with health care how your life will end and when. In a democracy there is no rule of law respecting LIFE. The classic example is ancient Athens. And the symbol of it is the fate of Socrates, who was put to death legally, because the majority didn’t like what he was saying, although he had initiated no force and had violated no one’s rights.

This why they (democrats and some Republicans) want everyone to believe that our Rights come from Government, meaning as long as you behave your rights are sometimes assured but no guarantees. This is what our founding fathers knew and wanted to avoid by giving us a Republic, where our Rights are from God not from some over oppresive government and those rights can not be taken away because some majority says so.
