Democrats in the House seek to expand tax funded abortions via the new spending bill in an attempt to end the partial government shutdown.
This new addition, known as The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2019, would repeal the provisional ban of non-governmental agencies from providing abortion as a form of family planning overseas.
“Known in the past as the Mexico City Policy, the provision is now known as the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance Policy, and was instituted by President Donald Trump shortly after his inauguration in January 2017. Abortion rights advocates simply refer to the provision as the “global gag rule”, according to Breitbart. The policy reinstated by President Trump, pulls US funding from any overseas abortion procedures – thus pulling money from International Planned Parenthood.
Nancy Pelosi and House Dems are wasting no time in forcing the abortion agenda as the vote is set for today, the first day of the new Congress.
The Washington Examiner states that, “The bill also would increase funding by $5 million for the United Nations Population Fund, to $37.5 million. Anti-abortion organizations oppose the program because they say it participates in coercive abortions and involuntary sterilizations.” Trump previously cut $32.5 million in funding from UNPF of which the US was its fourth largest donor.
Many pro-life groups are expressing their plead to Congress not to pass this bill:
“President Trump and his administration have taken a bold stand for life by stopping billions of dollars in foreign aid from being used to push abortion overseas. The House’s spending bill would repeal this successful pro-life policy, making taxpayers complicit in the exportation of abortion and destruction of countless unborn children around the world. This is unconscionable and we oppose the bill in the strongest terms”, according to Susan B. Anthony List.
Kristen Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, asked both parties to “reject new funding for abortion in the U.S. budget that would pay for abortions worldwide and to reject any new funding for abortion here at home.”
Instead of funding the wall to protect our boards, House Dems would rather the US fund world-wide abortions.
British Police Officer CRIMINALLY CHARGED for Sharing George Floyd Meme in WhatsApp Group
Free speech is dead.
A British police officer has been criminally charged over a George Floyd meme he allegedly shared with his colleagues in a WhatsApp group.
“Sergeant Geraint Jones, aged 47, is charged with sending the image on 30 May last year by means of a public electronic communications network, an offence contrary to section 127 of the Communications Act 2003,” a watchdog from the Independent Office for Police Conduct announced. “An altered image of George Floyd’s arrest in Minneapolis was shared within a WhatsApp group that included a number of other police officers and staff.”
“Our investigation began in June 2020 following a referral from the force,” the watchdog continued. “At its conclusion in October we sent our investigation report to the Crown Prosecution Service, which has authorized the charge.”
Sergeant Jones is scheduled to appear in court on January 28. He has been suspended from duty since June.
It’s no secret that free speech is all but dead in the United Kingdom. British elites stand out in particular for their fervent belief in neoliberal globalism and veneration of its secular saints. Their society encourages people to snitch and tattle on their fellow citizens to a higher degree than most any other Western nation.
George Floyd is also one of the neoliberal order’s foremost secular saints. Anything you say about him that isn’t equivalent to hero-worship will get you put on notice. Criticizing the intensity of his veneration and the Black Lives Matter movement itself are sufficient to get you labeled as a depraved racist and fired from your job—even in the United States.
Don’t think that hate speech laws aren’t possible in America either. If a majority of Americans and legal scholars in a decade or two come to believe that the First Amendment doesn’t protect “hate speech,” who’s to say that the laws won’t be changed to reflect that?
