Ilhan Omar Calls for Taxpayer-Funded Abortions for Illegal Immigrants

Controversial Democrat pushes free 'reproductive health care' for illegals in America

Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar wants taxpayer-funded abortions for illegal immigrants

Controversial Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has called for illegal immigrants to receive free abortions in America, funded by US taxpayers.

The Minnesota lawmaker and AOC Squad member claims illegal aliens shouldn't "fear" accessing "reproductive health care" just because they are "undocumented."

“No one should fear receiving medical care because they are undocumented,” Omar wrote on Twitter.

"We must ensure that all people in our country have access to reproductive health care."

Omar's tweet links to a Vox article that complains about how illegals living in “the Trump era” are struggling to "build families and take care of their own health" in America.

The author blames the "Trump administration’s immigration policies and rhetoric" for the issues faced by illegal aliens living in the United States.

According to the Daily Caller, Omar has taken hard-line positions on abortion before.

Following President Donald Trump’s impassioned plea to end late-term abortion in his February State of the Union address, Omar tweeted:

“If Trump thinks pivoting from his failed vanity wall to policing women’s bodies and choices is going to help his 2020 chances he has another thing [sic] coming.”

The Hyde Amendment prohibits federal funding for most abortions — whether the potential recipient is a legal citizen of the U.S. or not.

Despite many prominent Democrats wanting to overturn the Hyde Amendment — and former Vice President Joe Biden’s flip-flop on the issue — the law was renewed by the House of Representatives in a June vote.

Though the Supreme Court legalized abortion in the landmark Roe v. Wade case of 1973, pro-life conservatives have been working at the federal and state level to restrict access to abortion.

The most recent example was the passage Tuesday of the Human Life Protection Act by the Alabama Senate.

The bill would effectively ban all abortions in the state — with the exception of the case when an abortion is assessed to be necessary “in order to prevent a serious health risk.”

Abortion providers would face up to 99 years in prison for contravening the law.

In February, Missouri enacted legislation that would prohibit an abortion when a fetal heartbeat is detected — popularly known as a “heartbeat bill.”

Georgia, Gov. Brian Kemp also signed another heartbeat bill into law.
