Stop Taxpayer-funded Abortions in Health Care
January 23, 2017 - Monday

Abortion supporters are at it again by working to defeat a bill which would prohibit taxpayers like you and me from paying for other people's abortions.

Yes, that's right-: abortion supporters want us, the taxpayers, to continue to pay for abortions, especially in government programs like Obamacare.

We must work together to pass H.R. 7, the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act."

For over 30 years, the Hyde Amendment and other pro-life provisions have been renewed annually to prevent federal funds from being used to pay for abortions or healthcare plans which include abortion coverage. For over 30 years, Republicans and Democrats have come together to ensure that despite our differences, we should at least be able to agree that the government should not subsidize abortion.

Abortion is not healthcare, but Obamacare violates this longstanding consensus and bypasses the Hyde Amendment by giving taxpayer subsidies for abortions in the form of tax credits for healthcare plans which include abortion coverage. To restore the status quo and codify the bipartisan nationwide consensus on restricting government funding of abortion, Congress must pass H.R. 7.

H.R. 7 would make the Hyde Amendment permanent federal law and apply it government-wide to ensure that regardless of which political party is in power, taxpayers will not be on the hook for paying for other people’s abortions.

Your Members of Congress need to hear from you! Please call them at (202) 224-3121 and urge them to vote FOR H.R. 7, the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” this week! After you’ve called, you can also email them by following this link.
