Obama's Federal Budget Includes Taxpayer Funded Abortions in Washington DC

Obama's budget includes a provision that would repeal the ban on using taxpayer money to fund abortions in Washington DC.


"Congress, as authorized by the U.S. Constitution, holds complete legislative authority over the District of Columbia and, therefore, determines whether taxpayer dollars will be used to fund abortions for poor women there.

Although Congress has banned taxpayer-funded abortions in D.C. for years, the budget Obama released today, on Appendix page 1209 asks Congress to repeal the ban.
