House Democrats blocked a Republican effort to restore the Hyde Amendment, a long standing and bipartisan provision that prevents American taxpayer dollars from being used to fund abortions, to congressional spending bills.
- The Hyde Amendment, is a provision which prevents American taxpayer dollars from being used to fund abortions.
- For more than 40 years, the Hyde Amendment has ensured that Americans are not forced to pay for abortion-on-demand with their tax dollars
- The Hyde Amendment has saved 2.5 MILLION lives from abortion since 1976.
- Nearly 60% of Americans agree that taxpayer dollars should not be used to fund abortion.
President Biden himself has even said that “those of us who are opposed to abortion should not be compelled to pay for them” in 1994.
For more than 40 years, the Hyde Amendment had been supported by both Republicans and Democrats. Today’s vote changed that and shows how extreme Democrats have become.
