“Fighting for the Right to Choose.” That’s the subject line of the email from our congresswoman, Nita Lowey, to her constituents about a bill she introduced into the House on Jan. 24.
Well, that puts it right out there, and we’re grateful to Ms. Lowey for being so upfront about what her latest bill is about, because you’d never know it from the language of the legislation itself.
Take a look at Lowy’s H.R. 671, the Global Health, Empowerment, and Rights (HER) Act.
It talks about “the promotion of democracy [as] a principal goal of United States foreign policy,” “disrespect for the laws of sovereign nations,” and”the right of the people to peaceably assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”
But actually, what it’s all about is funding abortions abroad with our tax dollars.
H.R. 671 seeks to permanently repeal Pres. Trump’s executive order banning foreign aid to International Planned Parenthood and other international organizations that would use it to kill babies.
After eight years of subsidizing abortion overseas under Pres. Obama, we have to be grateful that Trump put an end to it last month.
