Abortion was on the minds of many voters during the 2022 midterm elections. Historically, regardless of whether a person was pro-choice or pro-life, one thing most Democrats and Republicans agreed upon was that taxpayers should not be forced to pay for abortion. But support for this position by Democrats has been waning in recent years. After the Supreme Court’s June Dobbs decision overturned Roe v. Wade, the Biden administration has sought new and creative ways to use the federal government to promote, provide and pay for abortion — all on the taxpayer’s dime.
