Pelosi Accused of Muzzling Opposition to Taxpayer-funded D.C. Abortions
EWTN ^ | Jul 18, 2009

Despite bipartisan efforts from pro-life congressmen, the U.S. House of Representatives narrowly passed legislation allowing taxpayer-funded abortion in the District of Columbia. One pro-lifer charged that opponents had been “muzzled” by Nancy Pelosi.

The Financial Services and General Government Appropriations Act passed by a vote of 219 to 208. It contained provisions which allowed local D.C. taxpayer money to be used on abortions and expanded the exemptions to fund abortions “where a woman suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury or physical illness.”

The House refused to consider a bipartisan amendment by Reps. Todd Tiahrt (R-KS) and Lincoln Davis (D-TN). By a vote of 216-213, the House blocked the Tiahrt/Davis Amendment and several other amendments from receiving an up-or-down vote on the House floor.

Pelosi is going to have a lot of explaining to do on judgment day.

For some reason, the words “muzzle” and “Pelosi” in the same sentence always bring a bright, sunny smile to my face. ;)
