Rep. Ilhan Omar Wants Taxpayer Funded Abortions for Illegal Immigrants

While the Democratic Party seems to be in complete agreement about providing free health care to illegal immigrants, freshmen Representative Ilhan Omar wants to take it a step further and throw in abortions as well.

Rep. Omar was responding to a story in Vox about how illegal immigrants are not taking care of their reproductive health over fear of being deported, yet the story begins with a tale of an illegal immigrant who went and got an abortion because she was afraid the state would take away her baby.

“In addition to people like Pablos who are deciding not to have children, doctors say many immigrants are forgoing necessary prenatal or other reproductive health care for fear that they or their families will be deported. That leads to real health disparities, from a decrease in cervical cancer screenings to an increase in labor complications,” the Vox article states.

Responding to the story, Rep. Omar tweeted that “no one should fear receiving medical care because they are undocumented. We must ensure that all people in our country have access to reproductive health.”

According to her website, Rep. Omar believes that nobody should ever pay for healthcare out of pocket — including abortion.

“It is horrifying that we continue to fight for the right to seek an abortion and access reproductive freedom,” says “Omar’s website. Her system would “Provide abortion coverage and care regardless of income or insurance.”

Naturally, she got dragged pretty hard, with over a thousand people responding and only 400-or-so retweets by the time of publishing.

At time of publishing, there were nearly no positive or supportive responses to the tweet.
