Senate Democrats Slam Trump Admin Over Lack of Abortion Access for Illegal Immigrants
Lauretta Brown
11/13/2017 5:30:00 PM - Lauretta Brown

A group of 16 Senate Democrats, led by Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), wrote a letter Friday to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) acting secretary Eric Hargan, rebuking the Office of Refugee Resettlement’s (ORR) current practice of denying illegal unaccompanied minors in their care access to abortion, in light of the recent case before the D.C. Appeals Court.

The ACLU and abortion advocacy groups seized on the case of 17-year-old Jane Doe last month to argue that illegal immigrants have a "constitutional right" to abortion access. Officials with the Department of Health and Human Services declined to facilitate the teen's abortion and, following the initial ACLU lawsuit, the Department of Justice argued that it sets "a dangerous precedent by opening our borders to any illegal children seeking taxpayer-supported, elective abortions.”
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

According to Democrats, foreigners who live illegally in the United States have a Constitutional right to free abortions paid for by American citizens, but American citizens do not have the right to free speech on college campuses, or to publicly defend themselves by force of arms against criminals.
Liberalism isn't really about making the world a better place. It's about reassuring the elites that they are good people for wanting to rule over it.

I know I'm gonna get hammered for posting this, but...
... if illegal females in the United States want abortions, let's accommodate them.
That means fewer anchor babies to weigh us down in the years ahead.

Again, I know this goes 100% against the grain of the pro-life folks here.

But I'm neither pro-life nor pro-abortion.
I'm a pragmatist.
If you don't like it, that's too bad.
