Somehow I’m not surprised…
From Breitbart News:
Republican Rep. Renee Ellmers (NC) seems to be digging herself in deeper with the pro-life base of the GOP. On Friday, Ellmers—who led a group of House Republicans in January in a maneuver that torpedoed a late-term abortion ban on the eve of the March for Life—took to her blog to defend herself as she also referred to pro-life groups as “abhorrent” and “childish.”
Former nurse Ellmers denounced pro-life groups one week after her decision to NOT support the House Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The NC Rep attempted to defend her actions on her blog by stating “As a mother, a wife, and a devout Catholic, protecting life is a mission that is very near and dear to my heart.”
This is not the first time that she has sacrificed lives of children; she previously voted against the DeSantis amendment which prioritizes deportation of illegal aliens who abuse children. The amendment passed with broad Democrat support and one “no” Republican vote – Ellmers.
DeSantis was said to be “perplexed” as to why anyone would vote against the amendment and stated, “Why would we have any tolerance for child molesters”?
Just ask Rene Ellmers.
