72 Representatives Warn Boehner: Abortion Slush Fund, Secrecy Clause Unacceptable! Also: Compassionate Late Term Abortionists?Submitted by Libera_me on Fri, 09/27/2013 - 22:40
I have to confess this is a real sore point for me: having experienced the pain of miscarriage of a child we hoped for makes this story seem sicker for me. However, I understand the attempt at compassion for the parent when a child has severe handicaps, and even life threatening ones, sometimes the choice for life is hard. I presume the article tells the truth about the offer of euthanasia for the child in the cases where the mother sees the life inside as a child, but it still seems both macabre' and hypocritical to me.(Hypocritical since the mothers who say 'get rid of it' often realize they were wrong later, and experience all sorts of pain later)
There are some direct quotes from Susan Robinson, the late-term abortionist interviewed by Jia Tolentino in the article linked below:
72 Members of the House have composed a letter to Speaker Boehner imploring him to incorporate H.R. 940, as well as the cessation of abortion funding by the federal government. They mention both the difficulty of finding a plan that covers all a family's needs that does not cover abortion, and the 'slush fund' bankrolled by a separate 'abortion fee'.
