The religious left campaign to use taxpayer money for abortions for Boko Haram victims

Via The Stream:

Last year’s brazen abduction of hundreds of Nigerian schoolgirls by the Islamist extremist group Boko Haram sparked the #BringBackOurGirls campaign and ignited outrage on social media. Almost all of the kidnapped schoolgirls from the town of Chibok remain captives today, but other Boko Haram victims are escaping, emerging from the forests of northeastern Nigeria traumatized and, in some cases, impregnated by their former captors.

The victims are being met with medical care and assistance from an assortment of NGOs, but now a group of U.S. Religious Left officials are calling for the Obama Administration to end a ban on taxpayer-funded abortions in order to terminate the pregnancies.

“Now as women in Syria, Iraq, Nigeria and many other un-named places have been subjected to systematic sexual abuse, rape and forced marriages, religious leaders in the United States are responding to the moral imperative of our faith traditions by calling for action on behalf of women and girls raped in war,” declared the Rev. Harry Knox, President of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice (RCRC), a group that advocates for unrestricted abortion.
