REPORT: Nancy Pelosi Tried To Sneak Abortion Funding Into Coronavirus Bill

Does absolutely everything have to be used by Democrats to advance their agenda?

It sure is starting to look that way.

Congress and President Trump have been working very hard to pass legislation to deal with the Coronavirus and Nancy Pelosi tried to sneak in funding for abortion.

PJ Media reports:

DESPICABLE: Nancy Pelosi Tries to Sneak Abortion Funding into Coronavirus Bill

If you needed more proof that Democrats see the coronavirus outbreak as a political opportunity, look no further than the COVID-19 economic stimulus package. It appears that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats attempted to sneak in a loophole for the Hyde Amendment, which prevents federal dollars from being used to pay for abortions, into the legislation.

Republicans were having none of it.

“While schools are closing and hospitals are gearing up, Speaker Pelosi is waging unnecessary culture wars. Speaker Pelosi should be fighting the coronavirus pandemic, not politicizing emergency funding by fighting against the bipartisan Hyde Amendment,” Senator Ben Sasse (R-NE) told National Review in a statement. “We need to be ramping up our diagnostic testing, not waging culture wars at the behest of Planned Parenthood. Good grief.”

Pelosi tried to include provisions into the package that would mandate $1 billion to reimburse laboratories, which the White House claims would establish a precedent that all health claims for any procedure, including abortion, could be reimbursed with taxpayer dollars, effectively bypassing the restrictions of the Hyde Amendment.

Why is Pelosi incapable of putting this aside for a moment?

And she claims to be a Catholic?
