“We must stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves”

by | Jul 2, 2021

Editor’s note. Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA) spoke in favor of H.R. 18, No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion ACT. 

Mr. CARTER of Georgia. Madam Speaker, I rise today in support of the Hyde amendment and to denounce President Biden’s pro-abortion budget. Since 1976, the Hyde amendment has saved millions of innocent lives by ensuring that American tax dollars are not spent on abortions. For over 40 years, Congress has supported the Hyde amendment with bipartisan support. That tradition seems to have ended with this current administration as President Biden hopes to pass the most pro-abortion budget in our Nation’s history. 

As a healthcare professional, father, and grandfather, I strongly believe in the right to life, just like the majority of Americans. We must stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves and uphold these provisions set by Congress over 40 years ago to save the lives of the unborn.
