Then they came after our conscience rights

notaxdollarsforabortionLast week, I wrote to tell you about the Democratic National Convention’s new platform plank calling for an end to the Hyde Amendment.

The Hyde Amendment is a law in force for the past 40 years that says no taxpayer dollars can be used in programs like Medicaid to pay for elective abortions.

That means if they get their way, you and I would be forced to pay for elective abortions in Medicaid and other federal programs.

This week, an article in the Associated Press stated there are now 119 co-sponsors, all Democrats, of a bill in the U.S. House to nullify the Hyde Amendment.

In other words, the 119 House Democrats want to force you to start paying for abortions with your federal tax dollars, no matter what reasons of conscience or belief make you understand that abortion is morally indefensible.

We have to fight this new threat to human life, and now. The pro-life majority of Americans needs to be warned, and informed where candidates stand on the issue of forced taxpayer funding of abortions.

National Right to Life is one of the most effective organizations at informing citizens where the candidates stand. But that activity requires your help.

Please support our projects to tell the American people about forced taxpayer funding and about where the candidates stand on it with a generous donation of $500, $100, or $50 today.

You might look at it this way – do you want your valuable funds going to fund abortions, or to a cause that will fight taxpayer funding of abortion with everything we have, and thereby save the unborn?

A study estimated that if the Hyde Amendment is overturned, it would result in 33,000 more babies lost to abortion every year, and there is good reason to think that the actual number would be even far higher — so unborn babies really do need us to stand up for them now more than ever! Please help us fight for them with your generous donation today!
