Action Alert! Tell Your Member of Congress to Support an End to Abortion Funding

Defense of the right to life is sometimes called a fringe issue, but it isn’t and never has been. Don’t be fooled by the crowds at last weekend’s Women’s March events in Washington and elsewhere — more than half of the nation opposes abortion, and a greater majority doesn’t understand why tax dollars ever pay for the violent termination of an unborn baby’s life.

It’s appropriate, then, that one of the first legislative priorities for the new Congress is found in H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2017. This bill, if enacted into law, would keep the abortion industry away from the federal treasury. Importantly, it would also make the Hyde Amendment, passed annually to prohibit Medicaid funds from being used for abortion, a permanent part of federal law.

Click Congress is found in here to ask your Member of Congress to support H.R. 7 when it comes to the House floor for a vote.

The Hyde Amendment is the brainchild of its namesake, the late former Rep. Henry Hyde of Illinois. It was first passed in 1976 as a rider (amendment) to an annual appropriation bill, and was the first legislative victory for the pro–life movement following the horrendous Roe v. Wade U.S. Supreme Court decision of 1973, which invalidated state abortion laws.

There will be loud opposition to this bill; the Democratic Party platform explicitly called for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment. They won’t take its enshrinement in federal law lightly. But we need to remember that the majority of Americans are pro–life, and that majority expects a pro–life administration and a pro–life Congress to reflect its wishes.

A version of H.R. 7 passed the House of Representatives in 2015, and is likely to pass this year as well. We’re asking CMC members and all believers to contact their Member of Congress promptly to demonstrate the commitment values voters have for the sanctity of human life.

This bill won’t reduce the number of abortions performed in this nation to zero, which is our ultimate goal. But it will ensure that our tax dollars aren’t paying for the destruction of innocent human life — and that’s a good start.

Join us in support of H.R. 7! Congress is found in Click here to send an email requesting prompt passage of the bill in the House of Representatives today.
