We must save the Hyde Amendment and STOP federal taxpayer funding of abortion!
In 1976, just three years after Roe v. Wade, the Hyde Amendment was first added to appropriations to prohibit federal funds from paying for elective abortions. This was in response to the government’s funding of hundreds of thousands of abortions each year since Roe. The Supreme Court upheld the Hyde Amendment, ruling that the legality of abortion did not obligate the funding of abortion. To date, the Hyde Amendment has saved over 2.4 million lives and protects federal taxpayers from being involved in abortion. But President Biden and his Administration is now departing from this status quo protection, and on May 28, 2021, President Biden’s Budget was released without the Hyde Amendment.
Recently, Congress voted to not have the Hyde Amendment attached to the most recent COVID relief bill, allowing millions of dollars to fund Planned Parenthood and abortion. Now, President Biden is eliminating the Hyde Amendment from his budget. 62 pro-life leaders from national and state organizations sent a letter to congressional leadership today urging them to fight for the Hyde Amendment and other similar longstanding pro-life riders to be included in the budget.
to make it clear to our legislators and our communities that the Hyde Amendment must remain!
