Pennsylvania senatorial candidate Katie McGinty refused to answer a question on whether she supports repeal of the Hyde Amendment this week, prompting reaction from the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List). The Hyde Amendment protects the conscience rights of taxpayers by ensuring public funds are not used for abortion on-demand. Hillary Clinton has pledged to repeal this longstanding, bipartisan policy if she is elected president and the 2016 Democratic Party platform, for the first time, explicitly calls for its repeal.
A new paper by Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) president Chuck Donovan and CLI research assistant Rebecca Gonzales details the findings of a systematic, state-by-state review of abortion reporting practices in the United States and underscores the need for more rapid and more consistent data collection to inform public policy related to abortion. “Abortion reporting in the United States has chronic issues. Our voluntary system has created a patchwork of difficult-to-access or entirely missing information,” Donovan explains.
