BREAKING: The new Democrat majority in Congress may vote to repeal the Hyde Amendment any day!
Repealing the Hyde Amendment would permit the funding of abortion with your federal tax dollars -- we must not allow that to happen!
If we're going to stop them, we must act quickly!
That’s why we’re asking you to contact your U.S. Senators and House Member, requesting that they vote against any legislation or proposed budget that would repeal the Hyde Amendment and force our taxpayer dollars to fund abortion.
You can contact your federal legislators in one easy step using one simple contact form that LifeSite is making available here, on the Voter Voice platform.
With one click, your message is sent directly to your representative(s), without having to look up any of their contact details.
This is just the beginning of congressional Democrats’ push for complete, unfettered access to abortion across our country, and their scheme to force the American people to pay for it is not only unconstitutional, but unconscionable.
Their mantra has been "Abortion for free, on demand, and without restriction," and now, they're pushing to make it the law of the land.
The Hyde Amendment, which was originally introduced by Congressman Henry Hyde of Illinois as a federal budget provision and approved by Congress in 1976 (after Roe v. Wade), prohibits taxpayer funds from paying for abortion in the United States.
After numerous legal battles, it was ultimately upheld as constitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1980, and formally took effect thereafter.
It has been renewed every year since and, according to a 2021 Marist poll, enjoys the support of 58% of Americans.
Even so, the Democratic leadership in the House has made no secret about their plans to target the Hyde Amendment, and now, with control of the Senate and Joe Biden in the White House, the end of Hyde could be imminent.
Members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives must take a firm, visible stand against these efforts to repeal the Hyde Amendment, and prioritize the rights of all Americans who oppose abortion from being responsible for funding it.
Please take a few minutes to contact your U.S. Senators and House Member and request that they oppose any and all efforts on the part of congressional Democrats to repeal the Hyde Amendment and force the people of Alabama (or any state) to fund abortion(s).
Rejecting these attempts, be they in the form of a budget provision or outright legislation, is crucial in defending the culture of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness in America.
The right of millions of Americans to simply live has been under attack for decades. Taxpayer funding of their deaths, by contrast, is a step even further in a morbid, dangerous direction.
Thank you for helping to deliver this message to them.
