The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote soon, likely tomorrow, on a pro-life bill titled No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2017 (H.R. 7). Text of the bill is available here.

Take action now! Congress will likely vote on this bill tomorrow.

The bill seeks to do three things:

  1. Make the Hyde Amendment (federal funding of abortion) and other current abortion funding prohibitions permanent and government-wide; (The Hyde Amendment has historically been attached to appropriation bills in the past, but this bill will codify/write the Hyde Amendment into law. Democrats oppose the Hyde Amendment and want to use your tax dollars to fund abortion. This bill will help prevent that.)
  2. Ensure that the Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, faithfully conforms to the Hyde Amendment while Congress works to repeal and replace the ACA;
  3. Ensure full disclosure, transparency, and the prominent display of the extent to which any health insurance plan on the healthcare exchange funds abortion.

Send your representative an email now to vote FOR H.R. 7, the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” this week!

Abortion is not healthcare nor should government be subsidizing abortion. Your congressional representative in Washington needs to hear from you now!
