President Joe Biden’s top nominee for deputy budget director, Shalanda Young, says that abortion is a “matter of ecnomic and racial justice.” You know who would be super proud to hear Young make that kind of statement? Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, a raging racist who wanted to use abortion and eugenics to wipe out blacks.
According to TheBlaze, the news about Young’s position on this issue was made public after her nomination to the Biden administration was advanced out of the Senate Budget Committee and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee just last week.
“Despite having earned general bipartisan support on Capitol Hill, 15 of the 18 Republicans who sit on both committees ultimately voted against advancing Young’s nomination,” TheBlaze reported.
“According to the New York Post, the Republican senators who voted against Young cited her perspective toward the Hyde Amendment, the law that prohibits federal tax dollars from funding abortions except in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother,” the report continued.
Young then told senators that getting rid of the Hyde Amendment is absolutely necessary to achieving and promoting “racial justice.”
“The President has spoken in favor of Congress ending the Hyde Amendment as part of his commitment to providing comprehensive health care for all women,” Young stated.
“Further, eliminating the Hyde Amendment is a matter of economic and racial justice because it most significantly impacts Medicaid recipients, who are low-income and more likely to be women of color,” Young went on to add.
Sen. Rob Portman, a Republican from Ohio, stated that at first he was supportive of Young’s nomination. However, that all changed when he heard about her radical support for taxpayer-funded abortions.
“I had planned to support Ms. Young based on her testimony before the committee,” Portman stated. “In reviewing her answers to the committee’s questions for the record, though, I’ve got to say I was really troubled by her responses, particularly her strong advocacy for eliminating the Hyde amendment.”
Sen. Lindsey Graham voted to advance the nomination but sought to have reassurances that she would not support any regulation that “changes Hyde or chips away at it.”
Once again the GOP is all over the map on abortion, just like on gun control. Democrats never go off the reservation on abortion or gun control votes.
