Congresswoman opposes humanitarian aid for women in Afghanistan because it’s not in the Constitution

US congresswoman, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL), has opposed providing humanitarian aid to women and girls in Afghanistan because doing so has not been mentioned in the US Constitution.

Speaking during a House debate on an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act that would strip funding for humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna (R-FL) defended the amendment, arguing that the phrase “humanitarian aid for women and children in Afghanistan” is not explicitly mentioned in the Constitution.

Rep. Sydney Kamlager-Dove (D-CA) responded to Rep. Anna Paulina Luna by saying that “The text is not in the constitution, it’s in the bill.”

Rep. Anna Paulina Luna’s argument faced ridicule and condemnations on Twitter.

Kim Masters, the editor at large of The Hollywood Reporter said: “They are having a stupidity contest and the competition is fierce.”

Another user accused Rep. Anna Paulina Luna of being heartless.

The measure, introduced by Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA), was met with opposition from Democrats, who argued that the amendment would leave millions of women and children in Afghanistan without essential assistance.
