There is a new push to force Americans to pay for abortion. The Biden Administration has released its federal budget proposal which would eliminate the Hyde Amendment. The Hyde Amendment and other similar laws have protected taxpayers from funding elective abortion since 1976 and have had broad public and bipartisan support. Without the Hyde Amendment, healthcare funding paid for with taxpayer dollars could go to abortion. To respond to the push to eliminate Hyde, the USCCB is asking parishes and dioceses across the country to take part in the "No Taxpayer Abortion" campaign. As we continue to encourage our network to take part in the campaign and sign the petition, we are also asking you to directly contact President Biden and members of Congress to tell them to preserve Hyde.
The President and your Congressional Delegation needs to hear from you!

- Share this message with your family and friends.
- Pray that Congress continues to protect taxpayer money from paying for abortion.
