Republicans are pushing a massive package of bills to overhaul the federal government’s family care system.
And it even has the backing of some of the GOP’s more moderate members.
But Nancy Mace found herself in an awkward position when the GOP devised this plan for unborn babies.
South Carolina RINO Congresswoman Nancy Mace has become the de facto leader of the pro-abortion wing of the GOP.
A culture of life in America
But being the leader of an ever-shrinking political movement dedicated to killing the preborn is causing Mace to lose favor in her party and in her district.
And now GOP leaders are wondering if Mace will oppose their latest effort to reform the family care system.
Congresswoman Ashley Hinson (R-IA) is the lead sponsor on a package of bills in the House called the Providing For Life Act.
This is an aggressive and ambitious attempt by the GOP to overhaul the federal government’s family care system.
Hinson recently told Fox News Digital her legislation “charts the policy course for a culture of life in America.”
“By expanding the child tax credit to include the unborn and providing additional support to working families, empowering women to care for their babies regardless of socioeconomic status or zip code and improving access to community resources, we can make a meaningful difference for those in need,” Hinson said.
And Hinson’s bill has support from across the GOP political spectrum.
Every vote is vital
With the House so closely divided and the Republicans only having a small majority, every Republican voted is vital for passage of this bill.
And the effort is gaining steam.
But now some are starting to wonder what pro-abortion Republicans like Mace will do.
Mace has made it clear she opposes any and all pro-life legislation, but she has also railed against such legislation and then voted for it in the end.
That could very well be the case with this legislation as well since it is so pro-family.
In fact, the key item would expand the refundable child tax credit to a $3,500 cap for children 5 and under, and $4,500 for ages 6-17.
Parents would have to be employed to get the credit under the GOP bill.
But where Mace and other pro-abortion activists might falter in their support is on the section that retroactively expands the tax credit to unborn children.
Under the plan, once a dependent is born, parents would be eligible to claim the tax credit retroactively for the prior year during the pregnancy.
This retroactive tax credit is in addition to getting the regular child tax credit in the current year.
And in addition to greater economic benefits for young families, Hinson’s legislation would provide expecting parents with support programs on college campuses and at pregnancy resource centers.
The legislation also would establish “a federal clearinghouse of resources” and bolster support for social service programs at places of worship.
The Senate counterpart was recently introduced by Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) who said it meant “real assistance” for children and families.
Rubio told Fox News Digital, “Supporting pregnant mothers and their unborn children is essential, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because America’s continued strength depends on the next generation.”
“This comprehensive legislation will provide real assistance for American parents and children in need. We need policies like these to show America that conservatives are pro-life across the board,” Rubio added.
