Pelosi: Lying from the Floor about Dying on the Floor

Tony Perkins' Washington Update: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) never lets the facts get in the way of a good sound bite. Last night, she wasted no time blasting the Protect Life Act as some sort of legislative grim reaper. The bill, which saves taxpayers from subsidizing abortions under ObamaCare, was so popular that it passed with an 81-vote cushion. To be clear, the Act doesn't ban abortions under ObamaCare--it simply bans the taxpayer-funding of them. Still, the former Speaker insisted that if taxpayers don't fork over their dollars to kill innocent children, women everywhere will perish. "...[W]hen Republicans vote for this bill today, they will be voting to say that women can die on the floor and health care providers do not have to intervene."

Now, I don't know of any clinics that let patients lie on the floor (unless she's referring to ObamaCare hospitals that won't have enough beds), but her statements are the height of irresponsibility. In the seven years of Hyde-Weldon, there hasn't been a single instance when a doctor used these protections to refuse medical treatment. What the bill does do, ironically, is protect taxpayers from being the reason unborn children are dying on the floor. It restores government neutrality on the question of abortion funding. But unfortunately, the media isn't telling that side of the story. It's too busy giving legs to inaccuracies like Nancy Pelosi's.
