6:35: Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership, Senior Policy Director chats with Bill today.
Is the pro-life movement on Capitol Hill dead? If it is, Rachel Bovard says that it’s Congressional Republicans who are the culprits.
Funding for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) —where nearly all federal pro-life policy resides—will pass a Republican Congress this month without a single new pro-life policy attached to it. Specifically, the bill would continue to fund Planned Parenthood in full—to the tune of $286 million. Under Republican majorities, we are witnessing a complete capitulation on an issue that remains central to the Republican platform, and dear to the conservative soul.
“Swamp politics” is an oversimplification, but an increasingly accurate way to describe the shameless shell games that continue to be played with the lives of the innocent. The pro-life movement on Capitol Hill will languish as long as its leaders on and off the hill continue to defer to a leadership far more interested in saying “we passed spending bills” than they are about what’s in them. Executive actions are all the pro-life cause may have to rely upon, as Republican leaders face down the possibility of losing of at least one of their majorities in November.
