Let’s say we DID have a choice in where our tax dollars went. If we listed everything we are spending on with our tax dollars, I guarantee something like ‘abortion facilities’ wouldn’t be the only thing we would stop paying for. Whether you stop funding/ban abortions, people will find a way to get an abortion done (sadly). In a situation where you are balancing life or death, people usually overlook their morals in order to live to try again another day. If my tax dollars do not provide funding for this and provide a good resource for those that are truly in need, I’m sure they’ll be put to good use for funding research into “running shrimp on treadmills” again. Rather than barring something due to the few that take advantage of the system for their own evil/selfish gains, it’s safer to leave it available as a resource for those that are in dire need of procedure such as this. In short: it is not “American” to strip the rights or choices of those to our left and right to satisfy our own conscience/opinions. We fought too hard in 1775-1783 to be independent from those who would strip us of our freedoms and rights to choose how we will live our lives.
