Democrats should listen: A majority of Americans agree that taxpayer dollars should never be used to fund abortions.

by | Jun 24, 2021

Editor’s note. Rep. Elise Stefanik spoke in favor of H.R. 18, No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion ACT


Ms. STEFANIK. Madam Speaker, as a new mom expecting a child this fall, I will never forget my husband and I hearing our child’s heartbeat for the first time, truly the greatest miracle of life. But sadly, that culture and value of life are under attack.

The Hyde amendment has historically been supported by both Republicans and Democrats for more than 40 years.

American taxpayers should never be forced to pay for abortions, and since 1976, this Chamber has agreed and passed the Hyde amendment with bipartisan support. But now, President Biden and House Democrats caving to the far left are trying to reverse course and strip the Hyde amendment from the budget.

It is unacceptable that President Biden is destroying a policy that has saved over 2.4 million innocent American lives. Every President since Carter has signed the Hyde amendment into law. 

It is a critical lifesaving protection that goes beyond party-line politics. It is about human life and protecting the most innocent among us.

The majority of Americans agree that taxpayer dollars should never be used to fund abortions. Democrats should listen.
