SBA List Strongly Opposes Bill that Would Repeal President Trump’s Pro-life Policies, Forcing American Taxpayers to Fund Abortionists Around the World
Washington, D.C. – The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) released the following statement regarding the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2019, which is expected to be voted on by the U.S. House of Representatives tomorrow as it convenes for the first day of the 116th Congress. The funding bill repeals President Trump’s Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance policy, which stops U.S. taxpayer funding of the abortion industry overseas.
“On day one of the new Congress, Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats are already trying to foist a radical pro-abortion agenda on the nation,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “A strong majority of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion. Acting on the clearly expressed will of the American people, President Trump and his administration have taken a bold stand for life by stopping billions of dollars in foreign aid from being used to push abortion overseas. The House’s spending bill would repeal this successful pro-life policy, making taxpayers complicit in the exportation of abortion and destruction of countless unborn children around the world. This is unconscionable and we oppose the bill in the strongest terms.”
SBA List is a network of more than 700,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
