The forced birth forces are warring on women again.

You know that sentimental human caring that says "rape, incest, or the life of the mother" are reasons why abortion might be allowed? Not for the Heritage Foundation. [Emphasis added]:

Conservatives recently criticized [Senator Bob] Corker’s new bill to combat human trafficking, the End Modern Slavery Initiative Act, as something that would create a redundant government program and possibly facilitate funding for abortions.

An anonymous senior Republican aide told The Daily Signal this month: “There are real concerns that the bill lacks sufficient pro-life statutory protections and would create a foundation that could use non-federal donations to fund groups that provide abortions.”

The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, recently published a policy brief warning that Corker’s bill lacked sufficient safeguards to prevent money raised by private organizations to fight trafficking from being used to promote abortion.

“The United States cannot stand up to a global human trafficking industry that violates the basic human rights of millions around the world unless it recognizes the worth and dignity of all victims of human slavery, including unborn children, and defends their basic right to life,” the brief stated.

What they mean there? Is forcing rape victims to have their rapists' babies.

Global organizations are outraged at what is perceived widely as backwards misogyny and outdated puritanism on the part of the United States. The US policy enforces the rights of terrorists to use rape as a weapon of war, forcing their progeny onto women populations.

Women raped by Isis are being denied aid because of America's antiquated laws on abortion.

It is atrocious that anyone should have to argue that "when Yazidi, Iraqi, Nigerian and Syrian women are systematically raped, the abortions that they might seek afterwards are not for 'family planning purposes.'"

This forced-birth extremism is an international embarrassment. And sadly, it will only be contained when one political party in the United States is pushed out of power.
