(Republican Party News) – It’s no secret that the overturning of the infamous Roe v. Wade decision this summer by the Supreme Court pulled the mask off the Democratic Party and allowed the monsters underneath be seen for what they are, as many on the left came forward, fangs bared, ready to do whatever it took to ensure that women kept the ability to legally murder their pre-born children in the womb.
States that have attempted to ban abortion have not only been criticized, but have found themselves becoming the target of radical progressive wrath from Democrats, many of whom are trying to find creative ways to punish them for holding pro-life stances.
The latest such example, according to American Military News, comes from Rep. Jackie Speier, a California Democrat, who recently spoke on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives and suggested moving 128 U.S. military bases out of Republican-led states that have a pro-life stance, while also addressing a new bill that would require the Department of Defense to pay for any military member’s travel expenses if they needed to go out of state to get an abortion.
“There’s a part of me that says we have 128 bases and installations in these red states, in these states that ban abortion. Maybe we should just move these bases,” Speier went on to say. “Now, that’s highly unlikely because we’ve invested so much, but it just begs the question about what are we really all about if we’re going to treat these servicewomen so poorly.”
“Speier made the remarks while promoting new legislation called the Access to Reproductive Care for Servicemembers Act, which would force the Department of Defense to ‘pay any travel expenses associated with an abortion and ensure servicemembers are able to take leave for their care,'” the report said.
The California Democrat then made the argument that bans on abortion make it more difficult for the military to recruit new members and to keep the members they already have.
“My office has been inundated with outreach from former and current service members who are anxious and despondent about being stationed in what they are referring to as ‘forced pregnancy States,’” Speier proclaimed.
Speier’s comments come just a few days after Sen. Mazie Hirono, a Hawaii Democrat, went on a tirade against a brand new bill proposed in the Senate that would ban abortions nationally, referring to it as a “literally call to arms.”
“This is an outright attack on women in this country,” Hirono ranted. “That is how I see it. That is how more and more women — and those who support our right to make decisions about our own bodies — that is how we see it.”
“Madame president, I yield the floor but clearly this is a — literally call to arms in our country,” Hirono continued.
“Earlier this month, an interim final rule submitted to the Federal Register revealed that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will soon begin offering abortions to pregnant veterans and VA beneficiaries for the first time ever, even in states where abortion is banned,” the AMN report concluded.
These are the kind of monsters we’re up against when it comes to saving the lives of the most vulnerable citizens in our country. Leftists are so concerned about the right to murder unborn children they are willing to utilize any argument they can to justify the legalization and funding of these horrific procedures.
This is why it’s critical for pro-life groups to continue to fight for bans in individual states, regardless of the threats made by Democrats. We must remain steadfast and firm in what we know to be true and right.
