I know, I know, conservatives don't like to spend money.
But when you're facing down the evil of federal funding of abortion clinics, you've gotta put your money where your mouth is.
In Tennessee, instead of funding abortion mills, Governor Bill Lee has pledged that the state is going to give $100 million to crisis pregnancy centers that help moms and babies instead of killing them.
From the Daily Caller:
The objective of this investment is to help nonprofits assist families in a "crisis pregnancy" situation, the governor's address said. The grant intends to better "maternal healthcare" by providing soon-to-be mothers with the resources they need through investing in nonprofits and crisis pregnancy centers, the governor's office told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
"There was a significant shift in this country last year when it comes to protecting the lives of the unborn. We now all have an opportunity and a moral obligation to support strong Tennessee families," Lee said in his speech.
This goes out to all the pro-death folks who say the Republicans don't care about women and don't care about babies after they're born.
That has always been a lie, conservatives are the first to adopt and give the most to charity. This is just another step in the direction of creating a culture of life.
Lee added that the Office of Faith-Based Initiatives will work with these community programs and nonprofits to get them the resources they need. In fact, last year, Tennessee assisted these centers with ultrasound funding, he said.
"Pro-life is much more than defending the lives of the unborn. This is not a matter of politics. This is about human dignity," the governor said.
