U.S. House Passes “No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act” in Bipartisan Vote | American Center for Law and Justice

U.S. House Passes “No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act” in Bipartisan Vote | American Center for Law and Justice:

"As we’ve explained before, “the Hyde Amendment is named after one of its biggest advocates, the late congressman Henry Hyde. The amendment prohibits federal funding of abortions, and as a rider to the HHS appropriations bill, must be passed each year.”

For the last 40 years, the Hyde Amendment has passed, in various forms, in a bipartisan manner. It prevents your taxpayer money from being used to pay for abortion services, except in the exceedingly rare cases of rape, incest, or the life of the mother. In short, the Hyde Amendment has worked to keep us, the taxpayers, from paying for abortions."
