Great news! The House of Representatives took the first step yesterday to end government funding for abortion when it passed the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act by a vote of 251-175. Sixteen Democrats voted for this legislation and not a single Republican opposed it. Click here to find out how your representative voted.
In a CNN poll taken on April 11, sixty-one percent of Americans opposed using public funds for abortions when the women couldn’t afford them.
The No Taxpayer for Abortion Act is a comprehensive approach that eliminates the patchwork of current pro-life policies that must be renewed annually. It simply ensures that Americans, many of them opposed on moral or religious grounds to abortion, are not forced to subsidize abortion with their tax dollars.
Now it’s time for Senator Harry Reid (D-Nevada) to bring this legislation up for a vote in the Senate. Please call your senators today at 202-224-3121 and urge them to ask Senator Reid to take the next step towards ending government funding for abortion.
