Public Overwhelmingly Support Bans On Taxpayer Funding, Driving Liberals Insane
Liberals hoping to ride the abortion issue to a 2018 election victory could find their political careers the victims of early termination.
On Monday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order banning U.S. taxpayer funds from being used to subsidize family planning clinics overseas that perform abortions.
The policy was originally adopted by Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, only to be overturned by their Democrat successors in an executive order tug-of-war.
This has sent liberals into a frothing rage, convinced that there is sufficient public outrage to use the issue as a weapon in the 2018 midterm elections.
“At Planned Parenthood, we will never stop fighting to ensure reproductive health access – in the U.S. and around the world,” tweeted Cecile Richards, the group’s blood-soaked president.
“It’s telling that one of Trump’s first executive actions combines two of his favorite things: silencing anyone who disagrees with him and repressing women,” read a statement “Naral Pro-Choice America,” a lobbying group representing abortion corporations.
“Just two days after the historic Women’s March and one day after the anniversary of the historic decision in Roe v. Wade, Donald Trump’s misguided priority is to reinstate… a policy that silences health workers at the expense of their patients,” NARAL falsely claimed.
But if any liberal is convinced that a tidal wave of opposition is about to crush pro-lifers are in for a disappointment.
Voters overwhelmingly support Trump’s abortion order and hate the pro-abortion movement.
“Americans overwhelmingly oppose the use of tax dollars to support abortion in other countries (83 percent). More than six in 10 Americans (61 percent) also oppose the use of tax dollars to fund abortions in the United States. This includes almost nine in 10 supporters of President Donald Trump (87 percent) and nearly four in 10 supporters of his presidential opponent, Hillary Clinton (39 percent),” a new Marist Poll finds.
The poll, conducted for the Knights of Columbus, finds that Democrats’ cult-like obsession with taxpayer-funded abortions on demand – up to the day of birth – is toxic to nearly all voters.
“There is a consensus in America in favor of significant abortion restrictions, and this common ground exists across party lines, and even among significant numbers of those who are pro-choice,” said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson. “This poll shows that large percentages of Americans, on both sides of the aisle, are united in their opposition to the status quo as it relates to abortion on demand. This is heartening and can help start a new national conversation on abortion.”
Marist found that while most Democrats believe abortion should be legal, 70 percent of them oppose taxpayer funding of abortions overseas.
This places Democratic leaders far outside the mainstream of their own party.
But it’s even more toxic to the independent voters Democrats somehow believe are outraged over Trump’s order.
A stunning 86 percent of independent voters oppose taxpayer funding of international abortions.
85 percent of all black voters oppose taxpayer funding of international abortions, as do 81 percent of Hispanics.
The only group supporting taxpayer funding of abortion?
If Democrats choose abortion as the hill they want to die on, the numbers show they’ll only be adding to their death toll.
