Opinion by Zachary Faria, Washington Examiner, 7/18/23
National Security Council coordinator John Kirby wants to remind everyone that the Democratic Party is so thoroughly obsessed with letting people kill their unborn children that Democrats view it as an integral part of defense policy.
On Monday, Kirby defended the Department of Defense policy of paying for travel expenses for military members to end the lives of their unborn children. Kirby called funding abortion trips a “foundational sacred obligation” of the military and said that helping kill unborn children is how the military “takes care” of families. “It’s just the right darn thing to do,” he said.
In his three-minute rant, Kirby also drove home the idea that several female service members and the wives of service members said abortion laws in various states would discourage them or their spouses from continuing to serve in the military. “That means we lose talent, important talent, and we’re an all-volunteer force,” he said.
In other words, the Pentagon must help fund the killing of the most vulnerable Americans to ensure that enough people pledge to defend Americans by joining the military. This is while Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) is blocking military promotions over the Pentagon’s policy of using taxpayer dollars to fund abortions. That blockade could end immediately if the Pentagon drops the policy, but Kirby is verbalizing what the Pentagon believes: killing unborn children is a “sacred obligation” of the U.S. military.
It is the pinnacle of Democratic abortion fanaticism that President Joe Biden, Kirby, and Pentagon leaders feel the need to politicize the military on behalf of abortion. There is no institution too important that the Democratic Party won’t force it to sacrifice its credibility at the altar of abortion. That is why Democrats threw a fit over the Supreme Court correctly ruling that abortion is not protected by the Constitution and why they continue to fit abortion into the responsibilities of every level of the executive branch.
If it is the case that the military cannot adequately defend the country without taxpayer funding for killing unborn children, perhaps there is a deeper problem in the military that needs to be addressed. It is Democrats and the Pentagon, not Tuberville, who are holding military readiness hostage in pursuit of partisan politics. The U.S. military is supposed to protect Americans, and that includes the most vulnerable children Kirby is saying must be tossed aside as a “sacred obligation.”
