Biden White House: Military Has ‘Sacred Obligation’ To Abort Babies With Your Money:
The White House has declared abortion a “sacred obligation” of the military.
National Security spokesman John Kirby made the comments during a Monday press briefing, where he claimed individuals who serve in the military have a right to federal funding for abortion. The remarks came in response to a question from RealClearPolitics reporter Phil Wegmann, who pressed Kirby on the administration’s criticism of Rep. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., for holding up military promotions over aggressive far-left social policy. In February, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced the Pentagon would cover up to three weeks of paid leave and travel for U.S. military personnel and their families for abortions.
Tuberville has followed through on his pledge to place a hold on Department of Defense nominees if the new policy were put in place. President Joe Biden condemned the Alabama lawmaker’s use of checks and balances to preserve prohibitions on federal funding for abortion as “irresponsible.”
“Why is the new DOD policy on abortion critical to military readiness?” Wegmann asked Monday.
Kirby responded by defending the Pentagon’s promotion of abortion as a “sacred obligation” that the federal government has to “female service members” and “transgender individuals who qualify.” --->READ MORE HERE

White House advisor pounds podium defending 'foundational, sacred obligation' to fund military abortions:
National Security Council spokesman John Kirby claimed state abortion laws were hurting military retention
National Security Council spokesman John Kirby launched an impassioned defense of abortion funding for service members and their families on Monday, pounding the podium of the White House press briefing room as he called military access to abortion a "foundational, sacred obligation."
The instance occurred when Kirby was asked by a reporter during the daily White House press briefing, what about the Pentagon's controversial policy for it to use taxpayer funds to reimburse the cost of travel and care related to abortions was "critical to military readiness."
"Our policies, whether they're diversity, inclusion, and equity or whether they're about transgender individuals who qualify physically and mentally, deserve to be able to [serve] with dignity. Or whether it's about female service members – one in five – or female family members being able to count on the kinds of health care and reproductive care specifically that they need to serve," Kirby said.
"That is a foundational, sacred obligation of military leaders across the river. I've seen it myself. And it matters because it says we're invested in you, because you are being willing to invest in us. You're investing your life, your family's livelihood with us. We owe you that back in return," he said.
Kirby argued that anyone who signs up to serve – and potentially lose their lives while serving – has "every right" to expect the military to "take care" of them, regardless of "who you are, who you love, or how you worship or don't."
He described meeting an all female group of service members and spouses who he said told him that abortion restrictions being passed in states across the country were "absolutely having an effect on their willingness to continue serving in uniform or to encourage or discourage, in this case, their spouses from continuing service." --->READ MORE HERE
