Never underestimate the hypocrisy of the GOPon January 22, 2011 at 11:38 am
Boehner and the Republicans are again looking at ways to restrict women’s access to abortions. Can anyone be surprised by their hypocrisy?
Private insurance paid for with private money to fund a legal medical procedure. The Hyde Amendment specifically PREVENTS federal tax dollars funding abortions, but that’s not good enough.
Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., a leader on women’s rights:
“These are folks who came to town saying they’d create jobs and get the economy back on track,” DeLauro said of the new Republican majority. “This legislation goes far beyond current law. Given the opportunity to govern, they are once again trying to deny women’s access to abortion.”
