Biden administration aims to end longstanding bipartisan tradition by striking Hyde amendment in the fiscal year 2022 budget request

by | Jul 2, 2021

Editor’s note. Rep. Stephanie Bice (R-OK)spoke in favor of H.R. 18, No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion ACT. 

Mrs. BICE of Oklahoma. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of the Hyde amendment. For over 40 years, the Hyde amendment, which prevents taxpayer-funded abortions has had strong bipartisan support. However, the Biden administration aims to end this longstanding bipartisan tradition by striking the amendment in the fiscal year 2022 budget request. The Hyde amendment is one of the longest standing Federal pro-life policies and has prohibited publicly funded abortions since 1976. 

After decades of support, it is gravely concerning that President Biden has reversed his position on this important pro-life protection. I vehemently support life and defending the unborn. I encourage all my colleagues, both Democrat and Republican, to support this important protection for the lives of the unborn.
