House Democrats kept the Hyde Amendment intact in their $1 trillion spending bill, which passed yesterday by a vote of 226 to 203. However, they added a different pro-choice provision that the liberal media is keeping quiet about.
The new spending bill would repeal the Mexico City Policy, which was reinstated by executive order when President Trump took office. The policy prevents taxpayer dollars from funding abortion overseas. This Democratic bill would reinstate Obama-era policies and force Americans to fund Planned Parenthood International Federation, which already has plans for what to do with the cash.
Trump and the GOP Senate will likely prevent this from happening. Like many GOP politicians, Trump promised to defund Planned Parenthood as a candidate. Then again, Trump and the GOP Congress both approved the 2018 omnibus bill that not only sustained Planned Parenthood’s domestic funding, but increased it to a total of $563.8 million per year. If the GOP let the abortion lobby walk right over them last year, what’s to say they won’t do it again?
