“We cannot understate the importance of this amendment in saving these precious, innocent lives”

by | Jul 22, 2021

Editor’s note. On July 19, Rep. Diana Harshbarger (R-TN) spoke in favor of H.R. 18, “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.”

Mrs. HARSHBARGER. Madam Speaker, I rise today in support of the Hyde amendment. As a mother and grandmother of two precious grandsons, I am committed to protecting the life of the unborn. Since enacted, the Hyde amendment ban on taxpayer-funded abortions has saved nearly 21⁄2 million lives. 

We cannot understate the importance of this amendment in saving these precious, innocent lives. I have taken care of young women with infertility problems for over 30 years, and they would love to cradle a precious baby in their arms. So many want to discard that precious child as just an unnecessary interruption in their way of life. This is why we need to enact H.R. 18, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, to ensure these pro-life protections remain in place.
