    Rep. Pressleys attempt to paint a truly life-saving amendment, one designed specifically to protect black, brown, and underprivileged people from being coerced by the state into choosing abortion, is severely problematic, the Hyde amendment has saved more than 2 million lives that are disproportionately black and brown. Suggesting that these people are better off dead is itself an expression of the white supremacist ideals that gave birth to the abortion industry in the first place! The American people deserve better than state sanctioned violence against their own offspring and the majority of Democrats agree. Taking a position against Hyde is a losing one.
