The House Is Moving to Force Taxpayer Funded Abortion

Since 1976 federal law has used the Hyde Amendment to protect U.S. taxpayers from directly funding abortions. This law has heldup throughout multiple court cases and Administrations. Now, the Hyde Amendment is in jeopardy of being repealed. President Biden and the Left are attempting to eliminate this protection for U.S. taxpayers and the U.S. House Appropriations subcommittee has now drafted a bill to begin this process.

ACLJ Director of Government Affairs Thann Bennett, who has broken down this issue in detail in a new article, explained how the Left in the U.S. House of Representatives is trying to strip away the Hyde Amendment:

 

For the first time since 1976 . . .  I would start by saying that this is an issue that pro-life, pro-choice, Republican, Democrat, and independent American voters pretty much agree with this. An overwhelming majority even on the pro-choice side don’t think their taxpayer dollars should be used to fund abortions in the United States of America. But . . . President Biden flip-flopped on the campaign trail after decades of being in favor of the Hyde Amendment which prohibits that direct funding. He flip-flopped, and last week in the House of Representatives the House Appropriations Committee essentially followed his cue. They have moved out an appropriation bill that would strip that protection from the bill. . . . Here’s what I think people have to understand – we have gotten to a place where we have gotten so radical in Washington, D.C. on the abortion issue that even a consensus issue like this one with the American people is not good enough for the pro-choice/pro-abortion crowd in Washington, D.C. They are moving to repeal that protection.
