Jan Schakowsky, the U.S. Representative from Evanston, Illinois, diminutive in intellectual and moral stature, has sponsored a bill to repeal the Helms Act. Her bill, H.R.1670, is titled “Abortion is Health Care Everywhere Act,” and if passed, would open the floodgates of American money to fund abortions overseas.
According to the liberal Guttmacher Institute, the repeal of this act will result in an additional 19 million babies slaughtered every year, mostly black and brown babies. If the Guttmacher statistic is accurate, that means the Helms Amendment has saved over 890 million black and brown babies since 1973 when it took effect.
And Schakowsky has the audacity of a lifelong politician whose conscience has shriveled up to call the Helms Amendment “racist.” Just think about that: a privileged white woman is calling an amendment that saves 19 million black and brown babies every year a “racist” amendment.
