Cease Abortion Subsidies in Healthcare (CASH) Act

Cease Abortion Subsidies in Healthcare (CASH) Act

Abortion is not healthcare, and taxpayers should not fund, incentivize, provide preferential tax treatment for, or otherwise subsidize the elective taking of unborn life. In light of a renewed push in Congress to repeal the Hyde Amendment and increase government funding for abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood, states must take legislative action to stop taxpayer subsidies of abortion. They can do this by codifying a state version of the Hyde Amendment and closing the Medicaid loophole, through which Planned Parenthood receives the bulk of its taxpayer funding. The CASH Act does both.

Key Points:

  • Abortion is not healthcare, and taxpayers should not fund, incentivize, provide preferential tax treatment for, or otherwise subsidize the elective taking of unborn life.
  • In light of a renewed push in Congress to repeal the Hyde Amendment, states must take legislative action to stop taxpayer subsidies of abortion.
  • The CASH Act codifies a state version of the Hyde Amendment and prohibits taxpayer funds from going to abortion providers and subsidizing their abortion business model.
