Congress restores D.C. abortion funding, spends more of your money

The Abortion president strikes again:

The $1.1 trillion spending bill the Senate passed yesterday includes major increases in funding for abortions.

The bill, which was sent to President Obama’s desk, reverses the Dornan Amendment, a 13-year-old ban on direct funding of abortions in the District of Columbia.

The bill, passed on a 57-35 mostly party-line vote, also appropriates $648.5 million for international family-planning funding, an increase of $103 million from Fiscal Year 2009, without the constraints of the Mexico City Policy to prevent these dollars from being provided to organizations that promote and perform abortions, reported here.
