Rep. Tiahrt’s Abortion Remarks Reveal Painful Truth Liberals Don’t Want Public to Know: Tax-funding of abortions in Washington, DC would further target Black population

Kansas Rep. Todd Tiahrt made remarks in opposition to tax-funding of abortion, which would increase abortion especially among the impoverished, predominately Black communities of Washington, D.C. Rep. Tiahrt rightly noted that tax-funded abortion would “encourage women who are single parents, living below the poverty level, to have the opportunity for a free abortion.” He then remarked that if tax-funded abortion had been available, perhaps President Obama or Clarence Thomas may have been aborted. “If you take that scenario and apply it to many of the great minds we have today, who would we have been deprived of? Our president grew up in those similar circumstances. If that financial incentive was in place, is it possible that his mother may have taken advantage of it?” Rep. Tiahrt said.
