Nancy Pelosi Allegedly Tried to Sneak Abortion Funding into Coronavirus Bill

Senior White House officials alleged that Pelosi attempted to get “several” provisions added to the bipartisan plan while in negotiations with U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, according to The Daily Caller.

Sen. Ben Sasse slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after White House officials said she attempted to slip in a Hyde amendment loophole into the coronavirus stimulus package.

“While schools are closing and hospitals are gearing up, Speaker Pelosi is waging unnecessary culture wars. Speaker Pelosi should be fighting the coronavirus pandemic, not politicizing emergency funding by fighting against the bipartisan Hyde amendment,” the Nebraska Republican said in a statement to National Review. “We need to be ramping up our diagnostic testing, not waging culture wars at the behest of Planned Parenthood. Good grief.”

“A new mandatory funding stream that does not have Hyde protections would be unprecedented,” one official said. “Under the guise of protecting people, Speaker Pelosi is working to make sure taxpayer dollars are spent covering abortion, which is not only backwards but goes against historical norms.”

Pelosi said that Democrats agreed to “most” changes that Republicans had asked for in the House bill.
