Huge ‘Slush Fund’ for Abortion Snuck into Omnibus Spending Spree

'The American people need to say “enough” and stop funding violent tyranny over the lives of the unborn... '

(Tony Sifert, Headline USA) The $1.5 trillion omnibus spending bill that Congress passed last week includes $286 million in “family planning” funding, millions of which will go to Planned Parenthood, according to the Catholic News Agency.

According to the text of the bill, Congress has distributed $286,479,000 for the “carrying out the program under title X of the PHS Act to provide for voluntary family planning projects.”

While pro-lifers are celebrating the fact that the Hyde Amendment remains in tact and that the funding cannot be used directly to fund abortions, Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, argued that the omnibus bill amounts to an abortion “slush fund.”

“Nancy Pelosi’s House of Representatives passed a $1.5 trillion spending package that included — among other obscene provisions — some highly lucrative kickbacks to Democrats’ friends in the abortion industry,” Rep. Roy wrote.

“Democrats nevertheless found ways to funnel cash to the abortion lobby, to the tune of millions of dollars, while dodging the protection of pro-life riders,” he added.

While the Hyde Amendment prevents federal money from funding abortion, Roy argued that “keeping the lights on” at Planned Parenthood freed up the abortion-factory’s resources for its only real purpose — murdering babies in the womb.

Roy went on to point out that the bill also includes $32.5 million for the United Nations Population Fund and $200 million for a new Gender Equity and Equality Action Fund — money that will in both cases “go toward promoting abortion across the globe.”

“The American people need to say “enough” and stop funding violent tyranny over the lives of the unborn,” Roy concluded.
