In the cluster of social justice warriors running for president, the newest virtue signal to show the world just how #woke you are is to call for repealing the Hyde Amendment. The Hyde Amendment prevents federal funds from paying for abortion, except to save the mother’s life.
But religious freedom means seemingly nothing to the presidential hopefuls, as repealing the Hyde Amendment is the only way to make sure that women have health care, or so they tell us. The following Democratic candidates have pledged to repeal the Hyde Amendment if elected president, followed by their current support in the presidential primary:
Bernie Sanders (16.9%)
Elizabeth Warren (8.4%)
Kamala Harris (7.3%)
Pete Buttigieg (6%)
Beto O’Rourke (3.9%)
Cory Booker (2.7%)
Kirsten Gillibrand (0.3%)
Bernie Sanders tweeted that there is no middle ground on women’s rights. Women’s rights, according to Sanders, require unlimited access to abortion. He states that under his Medicare for All plan he will repeal the Hyde Amendment, inevitably using federal funds to give your hard-earned tax dollars to fund abortion.
Got a moral conscience and don’t want your money going to abortions? Who cares in Bernie’s America!
