Executive Order 13535


Remember the outrage here over this.....


https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_Order_13535

Executive Order 13535 is an executive order announced by President Barack Obama on March 21, 2010, and signed on March 24. It reinforces a commitment to preservation of the Hyde Amendment's policy restricting federal funds for abortion within the context of recent health care legislation. The order was signed after an agreement with pro-life Democratic Congressman Bart Stupak, who had said he and several other pro-life Democrats in the House of Representatives would not support the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act unless the Bill's language prohibiting federal funding of abortions was strengthened.

1. Yes. Planned Parenthood, NARAL and other groups and leaders slammed it. It's a goddamn

shame that some of our most vulnerable people are seen as a bargaining chip and that their bodies are considered an acceptable compromise.

Hyde has to go.

Trading access to healthcare for some, while denying it to others.
