“It’s racist to fund abortions,” Katrina Jackson recently told EWTN Pro-Life Weekly, “because you’re going to have to cut the budget somewhere.”
Jackson, a pro-life Democrat, spoke with the show in an episode that aired Sept. 30. She responded to the push by Democrats to repeal the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding from going toward abortion with the exceptions of rape, incest, and to save the mother’s life. Established in 1976, Hyde has saved more than two million lives according to pro-life estimates. Today, it’s under threat by Democrats, many of whom call it racist.
During a House vote in July, not a single Democrat supported Hyde.
