Historically, pro-life Americans voted Republican. One of the main reasons for many women to opt for abortion is due to the inability to afford to raise a child. But if one looks carefully at recent policies proposed by the Biden Administration and opposed by Republicans, one wonders if pro-life Americans should shift to vote for Democrats, for it is Democrats’ policy that would reduce the need for abortion.
With the aging population and decreased birth rate, many developed nations (such as Australia, Canada, France, Japan, Poland, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, etc.) have already begun to establish policies to offer “baby bonuses” per child, assistance with child care, or generous family leave policies. The Czech Republic offers up to 70% of one’s salary during maternity leave while Berlin recently announced that all of its child care centers will be free.
Building off President Joe Biden’s effort to lift millions of children out of poverty during the pandemic, Democrats on Monday, Feb. 8, 2021, will introduce a bill that would send $3,000 per child to most American families, according to a copy of the proposal obtained by the Washington Post. Neal’s office did not immediately respond to Forbes’ request for comment Sunday. Democrats are racing to push through Biden’s stimulus package within the president’s first 100 days, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she wants to pass the relief in the House within two weeks. In the Senate, some elements of Biden’s proposal—including the new child tax credit now being advanced by congressional leadership—could face an uphill battle. Democrats hold narrow control of the Senate and are moving ahead to pass some part of the relief without Republican support utilizing a legislative maneuver known as reconciliation. It’s not clear whether the rules of reconciliation would permit Democrats to pass the child tax credit. Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) unveiled a different child tax benefit proposal this past week that would send at least $3,000 per year per child to every American family—including $4,200 per year for every child up 0-6—though that benefit would be scaled back for some higher earning families. Romney and other Senate Republicans have balked at the price tag of Biden’s proposal, and appear likely to vote against the package when it hits the Senate floor. The U. S. has one of the highest child poverty rates in the world, a problem that has only worsened since the pandemic.

Columbia University projects 13 percent of America’s children will be living in poverty if Washington doesn’t do something about it. President Biden proposed giving children ages six to 17 $3,000 and children under six $3,600 to bring children out of poverty. But the GOP has a different plan.
