“Using our military and fake emergencies to make sure there are no limits on abortions is absolutely, positively shameful. I will never bow to the mob saying otherwise.”
WASHINGTON — In a speech on the Senate floor, U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) stood up for the unborn and pro-life Americans while exposing the radical nature of Democrats’ abortion agenda, which is out-of-touch with the majority of the country. Senator Tuberville explained that most Americans support some restrictions on abortion, while Democrats are misusing taxpayer funds and government resources to facilitate an extreme abortion agenda of allowing abortion at any time, for any reason, with no consideration for human life.
This speech highlights Senator Tuberville’s extensive efforts to defend life and protect taxpayers from funding abortion, including his work to stop the Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs from performing illegal abortions.
Excerpts from Senator Tuberville’s speech can be found below, and his full remarks can be viewed here.
“Democrats frequently reject commonsense proposals — but support extreme policies put forth by the far-far-left wing of their party. Liberal representatives have to do this because they’re aligned with a woke mob that will cancel them if they disagree. Although that far-left mob is very vocal, they don’t represent the vast majority of Americans.”
“Democrats are misusing the federal government to get their way, regardless of what the law, the constitution, or the American people have to say. No issue shows the radical drift of this administration better than abortion, a very tough, and a very important topic. The far left attacks pro-life Americans, and they distract from the fact that their views go well beyond the beliefs of most Americans and most civilized people around the world.”
“I am proud to be pro-life for many reasons, including my faith — another thing that I will not set aside for political correctness. However, even without considering religion, a society that allows abortion up-to, and past the moment of birth — after the baby is born — isn’t progressive. It’s barbaric. And it’s murder.”
“The Biden administration is attempting to use — at this time, now — our military, our veterans’ affairs facilities, your taxpayer dollars, maybe even a ridiculous new public health emergency in the very [near] future, to go at this agenda. All to make sure there is unrestricted access to ending the life of an unborn child. That is extreme.”
“Department of Defense leaders claimed overturning Roe would severely impact military readiness, but the department has averaged less than 20 abortions per year for many, many years. Averaged only 20. So, does this — potentially restricting less than 20 procedures a year — sound like a threat to our military readiness? It does not. This isn’t about readiness, it’s about politics. The new policy would put the American people on the hook to pay for thousands and thousands of abortion trips every year, with no clear restrictions.”
“Using our military, and fake emergencies, to make sure there are no limits on abortions is absolutely, positively shameful. I will never bow to the mob saying otherwise. It’s embarrassing to our country. And I encourage all Americans who believe in the value of human life to stand up and join me.”
