“The national fever on abortion can break only when this Court returns abortion policy to the states – where agreement is more common, compromise is more possible, and disagreement can be resolved at the ballot box.”
“We thank Senators Manchin and Wicker for reaffirming strong bipartisan support for the Hyde Amendment after pro-abortion House Democrats stripped Hyde and other key pro-life policies from their spending bills. Their pro-life constituents and countless Americans will thank them, too,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “For more than 40 years, the Hyde family of pro-life policies has kept taxpayers out of the abortion business – with the original Hyde Amendment alone saving nearly 2.5 million lives during that time. Forcing taxpayers to be complicit in the destruction of innocent life by funding abortion on demand through birth is abhorrent. House Democrats’ bill is too extreme to pass the Senate and they push a radical agenda at their own political peril.”
“We’re encouraged to see the Senate pass this critical legislation to protect Texas women and their unborn children,” said SBA List State Policy Director Sue Liebel. “Chemical abortion is a growing threat across the nation. While the profit-driven abortion industry downplays the risks, these potent drugs are not safe either for unborn babies or their mothers. Research shows chemical abortions are even more dangerous than surgical abortion with a fourfold higher rate of complications, which can include severe bleeding, infection, incomplete abortion, or even death. Yet the Biden FDA recklessly seeks to turn every post office and pharmacy into an abortion center, leaving women to fend for themselves without medical supervision.
“We thank Governor Abbott for prioritizing the safety of women and girls, State Sen. Eddie Lucio, Jr. for his courageous leadership in authoring this legislation, the senators who have joined him as co-authors and all our pro-life allies for their advocacy of this bill. While their Democratic House counterparts literally fled the state to avoid voting on priority legislation, the Senate is acting on the will of Texans as well as a nationwide groundswell of pro-life momentum that has resulted in about 90 new pro-life laws this year alone.”
A House subcommittee has repealed the Hyde amendment in their spending budget proposal – we get reaction from Rep. Ashley Hinson of Iowa, who sits on the key House Appropriations Committee. Autumn Christensen, federal policy director for the Susan B. Anthony List, breaks down why this budget proposal is especially alarming for pro-lifers… and much more!
“Biden-Pelosi Democrats had the chance to foster unity by preserving the Hyde Amendment and other longstanding, popular policies that protect unborn babies and mothers. Instead, they shamefully doubled down on extremism, throwing out decades of bipartisan consensus,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “For more than 40 years, the Hyde family of pro-life policies has kept taxpayers out of the abortion business – with the original Hyde Amendment alone saving nearly 2.5 million lives during that time.
“We’re deeply grateful to House Republicans and all our pro-life allies fighting for Hyde principles and spreading the truth that #HydeSavesLives. This bill is far too extreme to pass the Senate, where Sen. Joe Manchin has promised to support Hyde ‘in every way possible.’ Pro-abortion Democrats push taxpayer-funded abortion on demand through birth at their own political peril.”
It’s a sad day in America as Democrat’s proposed budget seeks to eliminate the Hyde Amendment, the longstanding federal policy that protects taxpayers from being forced to fund abortions on demand.
