Arizona’s new (and likely illegitimate) Democratic governor Katie Hobbs wants to defund a center that provides housing and support for homeless pregnant women and redirect the money towards funding abortion providers. According to an analysis by Cathi Herrod, president of the Center for Arizona Policy: “Hobbs’ budget proposal takes $500,000 from pregnant, homeless women and provides $6.1 million in Title X contributions, generating millions in federal funding for abortion clinics.” Hobbs wants to take half a million dollars from pregnant and homeless women? She seems nice!
Michigan’s Democratic governor, Gretchen Whitmer, recently told a World Economic Forum audience that her state’s enactment of a pro-abortion constitutional amendment is one of the things that gives her hope for women’s representation in the future, along with Democrats’ relative success in the 2022 midterm elections, of course. Abortion equals “hope?” Whitmer seems nice!
And Illinois’ Democratic Governor J.B. Pritzker touted his state’s support for “a woman’s right to choose” at that self-same World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Pritzker was on a panel with six other U.S. lawmakers when he told moderator and current WEF president Børge Brende that he was deeply proud of expanding abortion in Illinois. He seems nice!
Whitmer’s state is experiencing rising crime rates. Detroit is a shambles. Pritzker’s Illinois is in the same boat. Chicago is a hellhole of surging violent crime and poverty, like most other cities run by “progressive” Democrats. Yet they don’t seem to care about the destitution, destruction, and death. They don’t even seem mildly chagrined by the plight of the places and citizens for which they are responsible. They are too busy paving the way for unfettered abortion—and then bragging about doing so.
It wasn’t that many years ago that Democrats like Bill Clinton wanted to make abortion “safe, legal, and rare.”
But the statements by Hobbs, Whitmer, and Pritzker were sure to be a hit with the WEF crowd. After all, they won’t have to try to implement so many policies designed to kill us rubes if they can keep us from being born in the first place. Plus, should they knock up a hooker or two-- or get knocked up themselves-- while in Davos for the Big Meeting of Masters and Morons, they don’t want to have to worry about the consequences.
