Many of the new budget proposals have omitted one key amendment

The new proposed spending plans leaves out a longstanding budget rider that bars federal funding for nearly all abortions through taxpayer supported programs such as the military and Medicaid. This would open the door to publicly funded abortions.

Biden, who claims to be a Catholic and a pro-life supporter in his “personal life” but a staunch abortion advocate in with his public policy used to support the Hyde Amendment in his earlier years in the senate.

He has reversed on the issue in recent days. Saying, “If I believe healthcare is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone’s Zip code.” As he has become more beholden to the radical anti-life/pro-abortion wing of his party.
Advocacy group All Above All cheered the news tweeting “We did it! We introduced the budget without Hyde restrictions.”

While they cheer, Biden’s Catholic standing is in jeopardy. More than 4,400 Norte Dame University students and some alumni signed an open letter citing Biden’s Hyde turnabout as reason to exclude him from the Catholic school’s commencement ceremony. Saying, “Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles.”

Marjorie Dannenfelser president of the Susan B. Anthony list said, “President Biden today caters to the most extreme voices within his party.”

    Health care is not a right,and abortion is not healthcare except in a very few cases.
