“No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” codifies the Hyde amendment and applies it to all government funding”

by | Jul 1, 2021

Editor’s note. Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Ks.) spoke in favor of H.R. 18, No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion ACT.

Mr. LAMBORN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to protect the sanctity of human life, especially the lives of the unborn. The Hyde amendment has saved nearly 2 1⁄2 million lives since its first inclusion in an appropriation bill in 1976. This historically bipartisan amendment which prohibits the use of taxpayer dollars paying for abortion is supported by a majority of Americans. 

H.R. 18, of which I am an original cosponsor, codifies the Hyde amendment and applies it to all government funding, cementing the protections for the most vulnerable Americans. 

This bill is called the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.”
