Democrats Are Using Misleading Claims about Abortion to Scrap the Hyde Amendment

  Democrats Are Using Misleading Claims about Abortion to Scrap the Hyde Amendment To fulfill their long-sought goal, Democrats are turning to discredited studies about who gets abortions and why.The current chair, Representative Rosa DeLauro (D., Conn.), has promised to make good on Lowey’s wish. Appropriations requests are due in the House by the end of this month; President Biden’s budget is expected shortly after. The president has already signed one significant piece of legislation that rejected Hyde. The Hyde-free “American Rescue Plan” signified a turn away from the long-standing consensus that taxpayers should not be forced to fund abortions.

Rennie is the first child for McPhee (who can currently be seen on Netflix's Country Comfort), and the sixth for Foster, 71, who has five daughters from previous relationships.

"Katharine McPhee and David Foster have welcomed a healthy baby boy," their rep told PEOPLE when Rennie arrived. "Mom, Dad and son are all doing wonderfully."

Kate Winslet holding a sign posing for the camera: Plenty of children of actors follow in their parent's footsteps. For instance, Dakota Johnson became a Hollywood star like her parents, Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, and Pauletta and Denzel Washington's son, John David Washington, has recently made a name for himself, too. But sometimes, the connection isn't apparent when a celebrity's child has a different last name than them. So you might be shocked to know that Oscar winner Kate Winslet just revealed that her 20-year-old daughter has been acting and you probably didn't even realize it, because of their different surnames. Read on to find out what Winslet's daughter has been up to, and for more on another one of Griffith's kids, See Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith's Daughter Stella Now.Read the original article on Best Life.

McPhee is looking forward to celebrating her first Mother's Day with a change of scenery. "We're actually going out of town with some friends, so on a little vacation [with] the baby," she says.

One bonus of the format is that it gives her more flexibility to spend time with her growing family. "I'm a new mom, so it's exciting to be home with the little baby," she says. (And judging by the photo above, Rennie's a big fan of the show too!)
