Statement from National Right to Life Regarding the House Appropriations Committee

Jun 20, 2023 | 2023 Press Releases, Press Releases, Press Room

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 radical abortion agenda of the Biden Administration.  The Committee voted to block the Biden Administration from funding elective abortions at Veterans Affairs medical centers with taxpayer dollars.  The Committee also included a provision to stop the illegal actions of the FDA in regards to mailing chemical abortion drugs.  In addition, the 2024 Defense Appropriations bill would block the Department of Defense from paying for abortion travel in violation of the long-standing policy against funding elective abortion with taxpayer money.  The Biden Administration is using every lever of power at its disposal to promote abortion with no thought of the innocent unborn children who would die.  National Right to Life is grateful to House appropriators for their work, and strongly supports these provisions becoming law.

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.
