Biden Administration Approves Pentagon Funding Travel Costs for Abortions

Joe Biden and his Secretary of Defense are being a bit too liberal with taxpayer funds.

On Thursday, Secretary Austin announced a new abortion policy for the military.

The Pentagon will now pick up travel costs for military who wish to travel out of state for an abortion.

Legal?

Austin stated, "Our Service members and their families are often required to travel or move to meet our staffing, operational, and training requirements.

"Such moves should not limit their access to reproductive health care."

First, abortion is not health care... health care is caring for health, not killing someone.

Second, using public funds for abortion costs is illegal.

The only exceptions are stipulated in the Hyde Amendment.

Austin is really splitting hairs here by approving travel costs and not actual procedural costs, but expect this to wind up in the courts very soon.

Austin added, "In my judgment, such effects qualify as unusual, extraordinary, hardship, or emergency circumstances for service members and their dependents and will interfere with our ability to recruit, retain, and maintain the readiness of a highly qualified force."

So, in essence, Austin has decided to circumvent the Constitution of the United States and Congress.
