In Another Attack on the First Amendment
|The longer the liberals/progressives are in power, the more radical they act in trying to destroy the Constitution and our Bill of Rights. One of the latest examples comes from the Democratic Party Platform for the 2016 Presidential Election. They officially included a clause call for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment, which bars the use of federal funds for abortions except under exigent circumstances.|
A very recent survey on federal funding for abortions shows that the majority of the country is against federal funding for abortions. Sixty-two percent of the 1,000 people who were polled gave it a thumbs down vote, including many who call themselves pro-choice. Marist researchers said that 45 percent of those who identify as pro-choice and 44 percent of Democrats surveyed said they were against the use of federal funds for abortions. The research also showed that almost 80 percent of respondents would restrict abortions to the first three months of pregnancy.
Thirty-six years ago, the Supreme Court rules against what the Democrats are proposing in its decision in the case of Harris v. McRae. The nine justices in that case ruled that the right to have an abortion does not include the right to force other people to pay for it through their tax dollars. The decision by the leaders of the Democratic Party to include repeal of the Hyde Amendment in its 2016 Platform is an infringement of everyones right to remain true to their beliefs and it is an infringement on the rights of all Americans, whether pro-choice or pro-life.
Barbara Carvalho, who oversees the Marist Poll, noted that “the majority of Americans in favor of abortion restrictions has been consistently around 8 in 10 for the better part of a decade.” She also pointed out that while “self-identification as pro-life or pro-choice can vary substantially from year to year, the support for restrictions is quite stable.”
Mainstream America believes that the First Amendment is inviolable. All Americans have the right to put into practice their religious beliefs, so why do we keep electing people that what to take that away from us…
