The pro-abortion lobby loves to call pro-lifers who support abortion regulations extremists; however, we’re not the ones filibustering late-term abortion bans and bipartisan legislation to stop human trafficking, or throwing fits about the non-controversial Hyde amendment.
Unbelievably, now Senate Democrats are trying to stop a bipartisan deal on Medicare between Rep. Nancy Pelosi and House Speaker John Boehner.
Roll Call reports that Pelosi and Boehner are working on a piece of legislation that would benefit the poor by ditching the yearly fixes to the payment formula for Medicare doctors. The deal would do this by blocking a 21% cut in doctors’ Medicare fees and change how doctors are reimbursed for Medicare patients in the future. It would also provide money for a health program for low-income children.
However, Minority Leader Harry Reid expressed concern that the tentative House agreement would write restrictions on abortions at community health centers into law. Of course Planned Parenthood jumped at the opportunity to support abortion and said on Twitter, “Senator Reid is standing up for women against #HydeandSneak attacks. Ask Sen. McConnell, SpeakerBoehner, and NancyPelosi to do the same!”
The post is truly laughable considering Pelosi’s infamous love affair with abortion. If you don’t remember, she’s the representative who called late-abortion “sacred ground” in 2013 after a reporter asked her about the difference between gruesome abortions and infanticides done by Kermit Gosnell.
