The looming pro-life issue is whether or not Democrats will push through the elimination of the Hyde Amendment, which prevents taxpayer money from funding abortions.

Representative Henry Hyde (R-IL) introduced that provision back in 1976, and it has been included in federal budgets ever since, including those submitted by President Barack Obama.  But now pro-abortion activists have made working for the elimination of the Hyde Amendment a condition for their support of candidates, and the Democrats whom they supported are now in power.

President Joe Biden supported the Hyde Amendment for all of his long career in public office, until his primary campaign, when--just days before reaffirming that he opposed forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions--he cravenly caved when the other candidates criticized him for that.   Whereupon he announced that he too would now seek to get rid of the Hyde Amendment.
