Democrats’ budget shenanigans highlight importance of 2020 elections

TITUSVILLE, FL  -- “This is why elections matter,” Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said today in reference to the budget shenanigans that Democrats have been involved in during negotiations on H.R. 2740, the House Appropriations bill.

Father Pavone explained that the Democrats are pushing a bill that would eliminate the conscience protections put in place by a recent Trump administration rule within the Department of Health and Human Services.

Another section of the Democrat bill would block pro-life changes to the Title X rule that stipulated that abortion facilities and family planning clinics cannot be in the same location. The rule also prohibits entities that receive Title X grants from referring for abortion.

The night before last, all the Republicans in the House voted for pro-life amendments that would have protected those pro-life provisions – that is, protect conscience rights and protect our taxpayer dollars from funding abortion.

But because only three out of the 235 Democrats voted for those pro-life amendments, the amendments failed to pass.

“This week, votes on both amendments failed because only three Democrats would cross the aisle to vote in favor,” Father Pavone said. “The Democrats are in so deep with the abortion cartel that they have lost all sense of what it means to serve the public. What’s keeping the Democrat dystopia at bay is that the Republicans control the Senate and, of course, the White House. Thank God.

“The elections of 2020 will be the most important of our lifetime.”
