Vocal Point-Rev. Dean Nelson

Topic: Is the Hyde Amendment “Racist”?

Recently, Rev. Dean Nelson, the executive director of Human Life Coalition Action, wrote an op-ed for the Washington Times,dealing with abortion.  Nelson wrote, “The Biden administration has promised to bring unity and healing to America. Part of that promise is a pledge to end systemic racism in the U.S.” One of the targets of the Biden administration is the Hyde Amendment, which limits federal money for abortion. Nelson says, “To truly fight racism, the Biden administration must keep the Hyde Amendment in place…. the Hyde Amendment protects America’s Black community from the ravages of the abortion industry.” Rev. Dean Nelson joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the Hyde Amendment and racism.
