Pro-Life Clinics Win Exemption OK

HB 62, the bill to provide a sales tax exemption to anti-abortion pregnancy resource clinics like Brandi Swindell’s Stanton Healthcare in Boise, has passed the House on a 58-12 vote, with only Democrats opposing the bill. Rep. Kelly Packer, R-McCammon, said she opposes abortion in most cases, but feels that only a tiny number occur because of risk to the life of the mother or sexual assault. “To me, the choice should be made at or before conception, not at an abortion clinic door,” she said/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: Do you agree/disagree with this vote?
