President Trump & Pro-life Republicans Protect Trump’s Historic Pro-life Wins
Washington, D.C. – The national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) today released the following statement in response to a bipartisan budget agreement reached by congressional leaders and the Trump administration:
“This budget agreement ensures that longstanding pro-life policy riders such as the Hyde Amendment along with every single one of President Trump’s pro-life executive actions are protected, effectively ending relentless efforts by House Democrats to repeal them in the budget process,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Most notably, this agreement ensures that the Protect Life Rule goes into effect, stopping the funneling of Title X tax dollars to abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood. If accepted by the full Congress, it will be up to House and Senate Appropriators to hold Speaker Pelosi and Democrats to their end of the bargain by stripping out all anti-life poison pills. Given the abortion extremism roiling the Democratic Party and the calls to repeal the Hyde Amendment by leading Democrats – from the liberal Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to the alleged moderate Joe Biden – vigilance will be needed. We thank President Trump, Leader McCarthy, Leader McConnell, and Senator Daines for prioritizing the protection of pro-life policies in budget negotiations.”
SBA List is a network of more than 787,000 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.
