Capitol Hill Brief — House Passes Hyde

Print Friendly, PDF & Email


Tired of your taxes paying for abortions? Well, I have good news for you!

Just last week, the House of Representatives passed a bill that ends taxpayer funding for abortion.

H.R. 7 passed with bipartisan support. We are one step closer to ending taxpayer funding of abortion and making what we know as the “Hyde Amendment” permanent.

The Hyde Amendment has passed every year for 40 years. It simply prohibits Medicaid funding of abortions and is estimated to have saved over 2 million lives.

Over 60 percent of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortions.

So the House acted with the full support of the American people. Time for the Senate to do the same!

It’s time to move taxpayer funding away from Planned Parenthood and support local Federally Qualified Health Centers. Tell Mitch McConnell that you’ll fight by his side to defend the unborn.
