It’s time to get the government out of the abortion business! When Congress comes back next week, it will vote on The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, H.R. 3. Please call your representative today at 202-225-3121 and ask him/her to vote for this bill!
This bill, introduced by Representatives Chris Smith (R-New Jersey) and Dan Lipinski (D-Illinois) would prohibit public funding of abortion in all federal programs and would ensure that no federal funds would be used for elective abortions. It would also codify the Hyde and Helms amendments, which currently must be renewed every year, and would further protect the conscience clause for medical professionals and institutions found in the Hyde-Weldon amendment.
In a recent CNN poll, a majority of Americans, whether referring to themselves as “pro-choice” or “pro-life,” said that they oppose federal funds going toward abortion. This legislation is a comprehensive approach that eliminates the patchwork of current policies. It simply ensures that Americans, many of them opposed to abortion on moral or religious grounds, are not forced to subsidize abortion with their tax dollars.
