H.R. 3 No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act
The importance of this Act is reflected in its bill number – it was the third bill introduced in the new Congress at the direction of Speaker Boehner. This bipartisan bill, sponsored by Reps. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Dan Lipinski (R-IL), would apply the Hyde Amendment across all government spending and codify several other pro-life policies, ultimately ending all taxpayer funding for abortion.
Reps. Smith and Lipinski explain the importance of H.R. 3:

After the vote was held, Congressman Smith sent out a message to SBA List activists, thanking them for their support in getting the bill passed:
The bill has not yet been voted upon in the Senate due to the actions of pro-abortion Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. However, with pro-life victories in the Senate and White House races next November, H.R. 3 can become the law of the land.
