Two hundred House Republicans sent a letter to House and Senate leaders today “to express our unified opposition to Congressional Democrats’ efforts to repeal the Hyde Amendment and other current-law, pro-life appropriations provisions.” They pledge to oppose any government funding bill that eliminates or weakens the Hyde Amendment or other pro-life appropriations protections in current law. Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee joined in support of this vital initiative with the following statement:
“Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee calls on Congress to Hold the Line on Life. We must Save Hyde as a continuing promise to American workers that our federal taxes will not be used to pay for annihilating unborn children. No humane society should promote the destruction of human life with its tax dollars.”
Read the letter to House and Senate leadership, released by the Republican Study Committee.
