If the fact that your tax dollars are going to fund abortion turns your stomach, you’ll want to give support to a new piece of legislation. Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-OH) and Rep. Christ Smith (R-NJ) recently introduced H.R. 3. The “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” will prohibit your tax dollars from going to abortion and covers all federal programs.
If passed, H.R. 3 will make the Hyde Amendment permanent and will strengthen efforts to stop the U.S. from funding abortion globally. The bill, as of last count, had 175 co-sponsors and the new Speaker of the House has vowed to make this bill “one of our highest legislative priorities.”
Speaker Boehner stated (video below): “A ban on taxpayer funding of abortion is the will of the people and ought to be the law of the land.” Rep. Boehner’s statement is supported by a Quinnipiac University poll that found that 67 percent of Americans oppose funding abortions with government funds.
Momentum is on the side of life. Please join the effort to make the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” a reality. Contact your representative today and encourage him to get behind H.R. 3. Go here to access the “Write your Representative” page.
