Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand told NBC News’ Josh Lederman that voters that oppose taxpayer dollars paying for abortion do not have “a valid argument.”
“We have a tenant in our Constitution, it’s called separation of church and state. And I do not believe that that is a valid argument. I think that the Hyde amendment should be repealed and that we actually need to make sure that women — regardless of their income level — have a basic right to reproductive care. It’s about our humanity, and it’s about our basic civil rights.”
How does separation of church and state have anything to do with taxpayers funding doctors that stop baby heartbeats?
Holy moly… Kirsten Gillibrand says voters who don’t want their tax dollars paying for abortions “do not have a valid argument.”

Speaking of someone who doesn’t have a valid argument.
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) claimed that Americans who don’t want their tax dollars funding abortions do not have a “valid argument.”
The abortion debate was catapulted into the public discourse following an Alabama law that set forward the most restrictive abortion regulations in the United States. Since Alabama’s legislation, several other states have proposed “heartbeat laws” that would pass similar restrictions on abortion. More
Women should have a “choice” to kill their baby after they chose not to use birth control but I shouldn’t have a “choice” where my tax dollars are spent?

Madam….you are not the arbiter of what I think is a valid arguement. Please don’t have the audacity to think or speak for me. Primarily because I use intellect, fact and informed decision making…you use whatever might get you elected.
My objection has absolutely nothing to do with religon and everything to do with science and actual facts regarding tax dollars. I pay them and do not want them going to kill unborn humans. It really is that simple and why she will never be president.

@gillibrandny What does separation of church & state have to do with this? People don’t need to be Christians to know murder is wrong, just like they didn’t need to be to know slavery was wrong. Why do you love torturing babies? #DemocratsAreNazis #DeathByDemocrat

Many people who do not agree with abortion do not feel that way due to religion. Separation of Church and State would not even apply to their reasoning of “Not with my tax dollars for your abortion.”

At the moment of conception, created is a unique individual, distinct from the mother with completely unique DNA. That individual is living, but dependent on the mother. Being dependent does not invalidate the rights of that individual.
