Extreme UnChristian Cruelty: Ban Abortions And Deny Women Food For Their Babies

Changes to WIC Benefits Would Cut Food Access for Millions of Parents - Civil Eats

MAGA Republicans ban abortions, deny food aid to mothers to feed their babies and pass and use some of that money to give more tax cuts to billionaire GOP donors? That's MAGA Robin Hood: Rob poor mothers to pay rich donors.

WIC (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children) provides federal funding for nutritional benefits for low-income women and children struggling with food insecurity. WIC has provided healthy food, referrals to other social programs, and breastfeeding support since Nixon was in office. MAGA Republicans are jeopardizing those nutritional benefits for the most vulnerable families, following a year of deepening hunger across the U.S. - Civil Eats

MAGA Republicans have given $1.5 trillion in tax cuts mainly to 400 wealthy families, many of whom are major GOP donors. That $1.5 trillion is 240 times the $6.1 billion needed for WIC to help two million hungry mothers and their babies.

How many babies have to go hungry for billionaire GOP donors to get more tax cuts? Ask your MAGA rep. Check this StoryMap to see which states have the most WIC recipients the state's MAGA Republican reps.

President Biden Calls for WIC Funding

WIC plays in the lives of families across this country and the potential that it has to make access to healthy foods and healthcare more equitable... this budget takes aim at the rising cost of food and seeks to diminish the struggle this poses to American families, especially families of color and low-income families who already struggle to put food on the table. - National WIC Association

MAGA Robin Hood: Rob poor mothers to give money to billionaire donors

"At least 2 million women and children  are at risk of being turned away if WIC is not funded to its full capacity, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities. If that happens, women and children will likely be put on waiting lists for the first time in over 25 years, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

In 2022, a staggering 39 percent of all infants within the U.S. relied on WIC support. In total, the program served nearly 6.3 million pregnant and postpartum women and children under 5 in 2022, providing a consistent source of nutrition to many vulnerable families. Research has found that WIC improves birth outcomes, lowers infant mortality, reduces Medicaid expenses, improves cognitive development, and increases childhood immunization." - Civil Eats

Mike Johnson denies poor mothers food to feed their babies

Thou shall not take the Lord's name in vain

Mike Johnson says the way to learn how feels about any issue is to read the Bible: 'That's my worldview, that's what I believe'. - Business Insider
Here are some other Christian teachings, MAGA Mike may have missed:

What exactly is forbidden by the third commandment 'Thou shall not take the Lord's name in vain'? The word vain (as it’s rendered in the ESV) can mean “empty,” “nothing,” “worthless,” or “to no good purpose.” We are forbidden, therefore, from taking the name of God (or taking up the name or bearing the name, as the phrase could be translated) in a manner that is wicked, worthless, or for wrong purposes.

"Whoever gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes will get many a curse" -  Proverb 28:27

The Bible tells us that a hypocrite is someone who puts on a mask and pretends to be something he is not. Hypocrisy is to claim to know and follow certain beliefs but to behave in a way that counteracts those beliefs. - Bible Study Tools

Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. - John 4:20

Mike Johnson is a hypocrite who denies food aid to poor mothers and their babies

Read Rules For Radicals by Saul Alinsky

Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky includes a list of rules of "power tactics," that offers a guideline for organizers and community activists. I used three of his principles in this blog.

Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.
Never go outside the experience of your people.
Wherever possible go outside of the experience of the enemy.
Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.
Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.

A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.
A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.
Keep the pressure on.
The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.
The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.
If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counter side.
The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.
Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. - VOX

TakeAway: Beware of MAGA hypocrites who take the Lord's name in vain to rob poor mothers of food aid to pay billionaire GOP donors.
