Gillibrand: Voters That Do Not Want Tax Dollars Paying For Abortion Do Not Have “A Valid Argument”

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 I think that the Hyde amendment should be repealed and that we actually need to make sure that women — regardless of their income level — have a basic right to reproductive care.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?

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?

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.
