Abortion, Hyde and the president’s 2015 budget

    Andrew Jenkins of Choice USA at The Hill: “Last week, President Obama released his annual budget proposal for the 2015 fiscal year. The budget is our chance to get a clear understanding of the priorities held by the highest office in the land. . . . Unfortunately, abortion coverage restrictions remain in the president’s budget proposal. While it doesn’t come as a surprise, the inclusion of ongoing restrictions on abortion funding in the federal budget is evidence of an unfortunate truth in American politics today: we’ve come to accept that the reproductive health and rights of the poor are somehow less valuable or important – nothing more than a bargaining chip and compromise we’re willing to make in service of short term political victories.”
