Proposed Bill Will Cut Off Federal Funding, Lift Up Hispanic Women

February 9, 2011

WASHINGTON, (MetroCatholic) -  The Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles, a leading voice for Latinos, today called on the House of Representatives to pass HR 3, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, sponsored by Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ), which creates a government-wide statutory prohibition on abortion funding.  The bill would ensure that no federal funds pay for abortion in the U.S., and also prohibits federal funds from being used to promote and perform abortions overseas as a form of family planning.

“It’s time for the federal government to stop aiding and abetting abortion practitioners who are targeting our communities to kill our children.  Twenty-two percent of abortions in the U.S. are performed on Hispanic women, and they are 2.7 times more likely to have an abortion than non-Hispanic white women,” said Alfonso Aguilar, Executive Director of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles.  ”Motivated by their warped eugenic views, Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers are clearly going after racial and ethnic minorities in the country.

“Latino voters need to be educated about the efforts of many in Congress and of the Obama Administration to continue allowing this inhumane attack on our community. Liberals have been able to hide this from Latinos for many years because they know the majority of Hispanics are pro-life.  We’re going to put a stop to that.

“It’s important to note also that one of President Obama’s first acts when taking office in 2009 was to rescind President Bush’s Executive Order that prohibited federal funding of organizations that promote abortion abroad. Now, taxpayer money can be used to fund groups that promote abortion as a family planning method, even in developing countries where abortion is illegal. If Latinos, of which 40 percent of them are foreign-born, were to find out that this Administration is helping to actively promote abortion in their home countries, including Mexico, they would be outraged.”

The Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles promotes conservative values and ideals within the Latino community and works to integrate Latinos into fuller and more active participation and leadership in the conservative movement. It is an initiative of The American Principles Project, a 501(c)(3) organization.

    Mr. Aguilar,

    Your words could not be truer. Thank you for standing up for what’s right and most of all for standing up for unborn Latinos. I hope you words are heard on all four corners of the Latin world and that they will raise up more courageous Latinos to speak up for the protection of our unborn. We have an average of 260,000 latino babies who die yearly from murder in their mommies wombs, and each one of those babies leaves a mother and father behind who enter into a cycle of self-destruction after the abortion. Basta!

    As a Hispanic woman, I applaud you - don’t give up the fight, we’re with you all the way!

    Aurora Tinajero
