Fr. Pavone: Passage of No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act will be major pro-life victory

Priests for Life

January 23, 2017
   
 
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- With the House of Representatives scheduled to vote tomorrow to end all taxpayer funding of abortion, Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, issued the following statement.
 
“The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act – H.R. 7 -- is vital in three ways. It will write the Hyde Amendment into permanent law. It will extend the Hyde Amendment so that it covers all federal spending. And it will end taxpayer funding of abortion through Obamacare.
 
“Currently, the Hyde Amendment, which has saved an estimated 2 million lives by restricting abortion funding for programs such as Medicaid, must be approved every year by Congress.  H.R. 7 will make it permanent, so that it isn't necessary to have this annual budget battle.  
 
“By extending the Amendment so that it covers all federal spending, not just programs funded through the Health and Human Services spending bill, it will no longer be necessary for Congress to have multiple votes on multiple measures each year regarding abortion funding from various government funding sources.
 
“Our pro-life victories at the ballot box last November can now be translated into pro-life victories in Congress!
 
"And let us thank God and continue to rejoice that we have a President who is going to sign this and other pro-life measures. We do not have to 'wait and see' about what President Trump will do. We already know, and he has already accomplished a major victory by preventing Hillary Clinton from becoming president. Under her, the amount of money flowing into the abortion industry would have increased exponentially."
