Nancy Pelosi Quietly, Deceitfully Approves $5 Million Overseas Abortion Funding Amid Gov’t Shutdown

 Nancy Pelosi has quietly, deceitfully approved $5 million in overseas abortion funding, despite the government shutdown. 

Nancy Pelosi approves abortion funding amid government shutdown

 Remember how President Trump put a stop on providing funding for overseas abortions? Well, Pelosi has just vowed to change that.

 One of Pelosi’s first acts as Speaker of the House will be an attempt to repeal what was once called the Mexico City policy, a directive prohibiting the Department of State from funding nongovernmental organizations that “perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning.” She quietly slipped the repeal into a bill to end the shutdown.

Washingtonexaminer.com reports: This shows exactly what kind of speaker Pelosi will be. When President Trump negotiates with Pelosi, he will be sparring with a shrewd negotiator and a champion of the abortion industry.

 When Obamacare was being debated in 2010, for instance, it was Pelosi who ensured Planned Parenthood that access to abortion took priority over any hopes and dreams of single-payer healthcare. “If there is an abortion ban,” former Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards recalls Pelosi telling her, “there will not be an Affordable Care Act.”

“People’s impressions get based on no information,” Richards recently told Vice. “One of the reasons I wrote what I did today is because a woman I know said to me the other day something I couldn’t believe. She was like, ‘I need to know where Pelosi is on abortion rights,’ and I was like, ‘Are you kidding? Nancy Pelosi is the reason we still have access to abortion rights under the Affordable Care Act.’”

 Now, Pelosi wants to expand the abortion franchise. As the Washington Examiner’s Kimberly Leonard reports, the spending bill in question would end the shutdown and increase funding by $5 million to the United Nations Population Fund to $37.5 million. It’s the definition of a poison pill.

 Although never committed to the cause before he ran for office, Trump is arguably the most pro-life president if judged solely by results. He expanded the Mexico City policy. He was the first president to address the national March for Life in person. He nominated two ostensibly pro-life Supreme Court justices. Call it a return on investment. Trump made a deal with evangelical voters during the election, and so far, he’s keeping his end of the deal.

 This transaction can’t be underestimated. Evangelicals went for Trump over Hillary Clinton, backing him 80 to 16 percent, in large part because of his conversion on the abortion issue. It is most fundamental second only perhaps to his promise to “build the wall.”

 Now, the two could be put in conflict. Eventually, a deal has to be made to reopen the government, and when that occurs, Pelosi could hold funding for border security hostage to money for overseas abortions. Don’t put it past her — she has shown exactly who she plans to be during her second stint as speaker.

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
