Oregon Democrats Cheer Taxpayer-Subsidized Death
The Left is happy to provide "free" abortions for all of Oregon's residents. Not just happy — jubilant.
“In such a divided country, it is rare to see that much joy on the faces of government officials,” Gary Bauer observes, referring to the above image. “What do you think these politicians are celebrating? A solution to homelessness? No. Lower taxes? Not a chance. New business development? Nope.” Disturbingly, what the picture manifests is the Democrat jubilation at Monday’s signing ceremony for HB 3391.
In addition to mandating that insurers cover the abortion expenses of Oregon’s entire citizenry, this despicable piece of legislation — enacted into law last month by Democrat Gov. Kate Brown — also creates a $500,000 pool from which abortion-seeking illegal immigrants can scrounge. It’s an unprecedented step in the Left’s obsession with expanding abortion “rights,” so don’t be surprised to see other blue states follow.
Sadly, these aren’t the first and only Democrats to celebrate such grotesque abortion practices. Two years ago, Planned Parenthood officials were caught fantasizing over how to spend the money they were collecting through fetal harvesting. Planned Parenthood Medical Directors’ Council president Dr. Mary Gatter spelled out her atrocious motivation for her illegal actions: “I want a Lamborghini.”
Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains medical director Dr. Savita Ginde remarked, “I think a per-item thing works a little better just because we can see how much [money] we can get out of it.” These and other distressing remarks and activity, revealed through Center for Medical Progress undercover videos, show Planned Parenthood workers not just nonchalant about the idea but even jovial as they swoon over the financial windfall.
Some prominent Democrat politicians have tried to say that, though they are “pro-choice,” abortion is a tough topic. But deep down, they don’t really feel that way. Just look at the reactions of Oregon Democrats and Planned Parenthood officials. Having indifferent feelings about — or, worse yet, willingly paying for — a child’s death is no laughing matter. Oregon and Planned Parenthood show just how far down the dark path abortion will take you. And it will only get worse.
