Abortion Haven? US May Soon Become Destination for Illegal Immigrants
The Hyde Amendment prohibits federal funds from being used to pay for abortions, but it does not address the issue of federal agents being used to help facilitate the murder of unborn children.
To assure that detained illegal immigrants don’t just disappear somewhere into the general population, border agents now will be forced to either transport the pregnant immigrants to abortion clinics or accompany them if someone else takes them there.
That means indirectly, U.S. taxpayers are helping illegal immigrants get abortions. Judge Chutkan said current U.S. policy “infringes on the constitutional rights of illegal immigrants.”
But what about the rights of taxpaying citizens? Should they not take precedence over the rights of abortion-seeking illegals? And do we really want to be known as a country where pregnant immigrants can cross our border illegally and then federal workers will help facilitate their abortions?
