Protect Life Act has Pro-Choice in 'murderous rage'

What is it about attempting to protect unborn babies from the slaughter that is abortion, that makes pro-choicer's so angry?  It's not like they don't have the power to not get pregnant, is it?

@childfreediva is 'filled with murderous rage'.  I assume that rage is directed at pro-life.  image

Today the House of Representatives voted on the Protect Life Act, and passed it by a vote of 251-172.

From Life News:

H.R. 358, Protect Life Act, makes it clear that no funds authorized or appropriated by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), including tax credits and cost-sharing reductions, may be used to pay for abortion or abortion coverage. It specifies that individual people or state or local governments must purchase a separate elective abortion rider or insurance coverage that includes elective abortion but only as long as that is done with private funds and not monies authorized by Obamacare.

Much of the debate surrounded whether or not the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits federal taxpayer funding of abortions only in discretionary spending related to the HHS department, applied to Obamacare. As the Associated Press confirmed in 2009, it does not.

“Currently a law called the Hyde amendment bars federal funding for abortion – except in cases of rape and incest or if the mother’s life would be endangered – and applies those restrictions to Medicaid,” AP writer Erica Werner reports. “Separate laws apply the restrictions to the federal employee health plan and military and other programs.”

“But the Democrats’ health overhaul bill would create a new stream of federal funding not covered by the restrictions,” AP confirms.

We don't have high hopes for the pro-abortion democrat controlled Senate to pass it, and we have no hope that Obama would ever sign it.  But what we do have is progress.  With every piece of pro-life legislation that is introduced, the issue of abortion is being brought to the forefront of Americans who frankly, haven't thought much about it.  Pro-lifers are changing that.
