‘I Would Have Been Dismembered… Thrown Into a Trash Can’ Says Black Woman Whose Mother Paid for Abortion

“My mother faced intense pressure to abort, leading her to schedule an abortion at Mt. Sinai hospital in Hartford.”

Below is a report by Tyler O’Neill published by PJ Media on December 8, 2020. He covered a congressional hearing on the Hyde Amendment.

On Tuesday, Democrats on the House Appropriations Committee held a hearing condemning the Hyde Amendment, a federal policy that protects taxpayers from funding the intentional killing of babies in the womb. Democrats argued that the policy is racist but a black mother gave a powerful testimony in favor of the Hyde Amendment, telling her personal story about having almost gotten aborted herself.

“I was born in 1981, a year after the Supreme Court reaffirmed the Hyde Amendment,” Christina Bennett, communications director of the Family Institute of Connecticut, testified. “My mother faced intense pressure to abort, leading her to schedule an abortion at Mt. Sinai hospital in Hartford.”

Yet “the kind words of an elderly black janitor” convinced Bennett’s mother to keep her. “Before she left, the doctor pressured her to go through with the abortion, reminding her that she’d already paid for it. When she insisted on keeping me, he yelled, ‘Don’t leave this room.’”

“My mother wanted me even though she paid for an abortion,” Bennett explained. “My mother represents women who’ve been coerced into abortion.”

Bennett testified that she has helped “hundreds of women” who faced similar coercion. Later in the hearing, she explained exactly how a doctor would have snuffed out her life.

“If I was aborted in Hartford, I would have been dismembered, my body would have been thrown into a trash can, and that would have been the reality of what happened,” Bennett said.

“We can never deny the fact that abortion is the intentional taking of a human life and taxpayers who are morally opposed to this — whether it’s for religious reasons or secular reasons — should not be forced to have to fund this, especially for those of us in the black community who view abortion and what has happened to our community as an act of genocide,” she argued.

Indeed, Louisiana State Rep. Katrina Jackson (D) called abortion “modern-day genocide for African-Americans.”

“More African American babies are killed in the womb each year than by any other cause,” she told PJ Media. “There’s no other way to look at it. At the close of 2019, more African American babies will die at the hands of abortionists than any other disease, sickness, or violence combined. How do you not define it to be genocide?”

DEMOCRATIC “TROJAN HORSE” EQUALITY ACT BILL ON THE VERGE OF PASSING THE SENATE

It’s an unabashed Trojan Horse designed to destroy families, confuse genders, AND MOST DEVASTATING OF ALL — Kill innocent babies across the nation AT YOUR EXPENSE.”

Judie Brown, President of the American Life League is asking us to help defeat the Equality Act. Please read her strong, fact-based information on the devastation of this legislation that recently passed in the House of Representatives.

If the Democratic Party is good at one thing, it’s knowing how to hide their true agenda behind a smokescreen of “equality” and smug self-righteousness.

They have a sordid history of pushing their insidious agendas with innocent names like the “Affordable Healthcare Act”—knowing full well that the average American will accept it at face value without looking at the horrors hidden in the fine print.

The “Equality Act” is the latest in a long line of Democrat-backed bills that doesn’t even come close to living up to its name, because a basic look into the details reveals one simple truth:

The Equality Act isn’t at all equal!!!
 
It’s an unabashed Trojan Horse designed to destroy families, confuse genders, 
 
AND MOST DEVASTATING OF ALL —
 
 KILL INNOCENT BABIES ACROSS THE NATION AT YOUR EXPENSE!

The pro-abortion, Democrat-controlled House has recently passed the so-called Equality Act – which is clearly designed to push anything but equality!

  • It flies in the face of the Hyde Amendment, allowing federal funding for abortion!
  • Business owners will be forced by law to accommodate homosexual and gender- confused clients and events—regardless of their own values and policies!
  • It will destroy conscience clauses, forcing religious medical personnel to assist
    in abortions against their will!
  • Taxpayers like you would be forced to fund abortions across the nation—and there’s nothing you could do about it!

Clearly, this bogus bill is just more agenda-pushing garbage and its name is nothing more than a bold-faced lie. 

The Equality Act is a fraud, pure and simple!

This disgusting piece of legislation is now in the hands of the Senate, where they need 60 votes to pass, due to the current filibuster rules.

While things are certainly dire, we have not lost this fight yet!

We have a chance to stop this insidious bill that would devastate families and babies!
And that’s why I need you to do three things today:
 
FIRST, PRAY FOR US AND OUR WORK! It is only through the grace of God that the horrors of abortion-on-demand can ever be defeated!
 
SECOND, WE NEED EVERYONE to contact their senators today and tell them to vote against the EQUALITY ACT, or any bill that promotes the destruction of families and the federal funding of abortion.

Senate Switchboard Phone #: (202) 224-3121

Don’t think your voice doesn’t count. It does! Every voice gives us another step toward sending this pack of lies to the bin.  

THIRD, send us your most generous gift to support our efforts! We need as many of your fellow Americans as possible to join us in stopping this evil act that claims to push for “equality”! Your support is crucial in making sure that we can spread the word as far as we can through mail, radio, social media, and every other avenue at our disposal!

Judge Rules Texas Can Remove Planned Parenthood From Medicaid Program

“Planned Parenthood is not a ‘qualified’ provider under the Medicaid Act, and it should not receive public funding through the Medicaid program.”

The following Epoch Times article by journalist GQ Pan reported on a Texas court ruling against Planned Parenthood.

A state district court has given the green light for Texas to remove Planned Parenthood from its Medicaid program.

In her ruling on Wednesday, State District Judge Lora Livingston sided with state officials, who have been seeking to oust Planned Parenthood from Medicaid since 2015. The abortion provider sued the state last month, arguing that its health clinics were not properly notified about terminating the Medicaid agreement before their Medicaid funds were cut off.

Livingston, who granted last month a 14-day extension of Planned Parenthood’s Medicaid funding, wrote in her decision that since Planned Parenthood has already challenged its termination in a federal court, it’s not up to a state court to determine whether state officials didn’t followed the proper termination procedures.

In November, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a lower court decision that had blocked Texas from removing Planned Parenthood in 2017, ruling that Medicaid beneficiaries don’t have the right to challenge how states determine which providers are qualified to receive the program’s funding.

“This decision is not made lightly,” Livingston wrote. “In the light of the ongoing public health crisis, the risks of the individual losing health care and medical attention requires increased attention and scrutiny.”

Planned Parenthood decried the decision, saying that thousands of low-income patients who use its clinics for services that are not related to abortion, such as STD testing and cancer screenings, will be forced to find new providers.

The Right to Life: An Indispensable Truth

The following message is from David Simon, Philadelphia Field Director of CatholicVote.

CatholicVote Warriors,

Check out this quick 30-second video that CatholicVote just released last night. It very quickly and succinctly sums up how Joe Biden has abandoned his Catholic values by promising to FORCE taxpayers to pay for abortions through abolishing the Hyde Amendment. Share it far and wide!

Yesterday Pennsylvania had our highest number of calls so far for the whole year, clocking in at 1145 calls! This is fantastic!

I am challenging everyone to keep up this momentum and push the bar even higher! Let’s blow everyone away by how quickly Pennsylvania can get through these calls. We all know that in the Northeast, we do it best! Let’s prove that to the rest of the CV teams across the country by making Pennsylvania the gold standard for CampaignSidekick. CampaignSidekick calls are way quicker and easier than you might think. You can blow through 100 calls in less than one hour total!

Don’t forget, from now until election day, our top 5 callers of the week that make at least 200 calls per week will get a $25 Visa gift card! In addition, this week ONLY, our top caller who makes at least 1,000 calls will get a $100 Amazon gift card!

Until we finish the survey phase, we are unable to move into any other Get Out the Vote efforts, all of which are crucial to our goal of turning out the 201,000+ Mass attending Catholics that did not vote in 2016!

Also wanted to share this picture from Lord of the Rings that one of our wonderful volunteers, Jane, had sent to me. This election is our chance to make our own stand as Catholics against the dark forces that seek to rip apart our nation and our liberties.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,
David Laurence Simon
