National Right to Life Supports the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act

Jun 3, 2024 | 2024 Press Releases, Press Releases, Press Room

WASHINGTON — National Right to Life supports the Military Construction and Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2025 (H.R. 8580).

The following is a statement from Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life:

National Right to Life thanks the House Appropriations Committee for their work fighting back against the Biden administration’s radical abortion agenda. The FY25 Military Construction, Veterans Affairs Appropriations Bill (H.R. 8580) would block the Biden administration from funding elective abortions at Veterans Affairs medical centers with taxpayer dollars. The Biden administration is using every lever of power at its disposal to promote abortion with no regard for the law and with no thought of the innocent unborn children who would die. National Right to Life is grateful to Chairman Cole and House appropriators for their work and strongly supports this bill.

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of affiliates in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, National Right to Life works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide, and euthanasia.
