“Shame on Senate Democrats who exploited COVID-19 relief to expand taxpayer-funded abortion on demand, breaking with more than four decades of bipartisan consensus. The strong majority of Americans, including millions of rank-and-file Democrats, oppose forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “We thank Senators Daines and Lankford for their heroic efforts to fix this bill, as well as the three Senate Democrats who stood up to extremists in their party and voted with all their Republican colleagues in favor of Hyde protections, showing that life is not a partisan issue.
“Tragically, it was not enough to overcome radical pro-abortion Democrats emboldened under the Biden-Harris administration. The so-called American Rescue Plan is disastrous for unborn children and their mothers. Susan B. Anthony List will work tirelessly to educate voters so their senators are held accountable.”
