Later this afternoon, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (H.R. 3) will hit the floor of the House of Representatives.
This bipartisan bill — co-sponsored by Reps. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Dan Lipinski (D-IL) — establishes a permanent, government-wide prohibition on federal funding for abortion, prohibits federal subsidies for health plans that include abortion, and strengthens conscience protections for health care professionals.
Why is this bill so critical? Each and every year, many restrictions on taxpayer funding of abortion such as the Hyde Amendment expire, meaning our pro-life leaders in Congress have to fight hard to get them passed again and again. Furthermore, the Hyde Amendment does not cover new programs created by Obamacare. This bill creates a ban on federal subsides for health care plans that cover abortion.
To learn more about the Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, please check out this great letter circulated by our 17 wonderful pro-life women in the 112th Congress, led by Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-OH).
Also, please take a moment to watch the video message below from my good friend, Rep. Chris Smith, a chief sponsor of the bill and co-chair of the House Pro-Life Caucus.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Politicians tell a lot of whoppers, but some are obviously more blatant or galling than others. In John Kasich’s case, he doesn’t think small and goes straight for the top, as part of a smear against his opponents and a lie about himself. Take a look: First, this article from the Wall Street Journal, hilariously titled ““Kasich: I’m a | Read More »
