We Should Make the Hyde Amendment Permanent

Should the Hyde Amendment become permanent. This article published today on LifeNews.com states in part:

“Today marks the 40th anniversary of an important policy that prohibits taxpayer funding of abortion — the Hyde Amendment. This is an annual appropriations rider that does not allow direct taxpayer dollars to fund abortion coverage through government programs.”

“Former Congressman Henry Hyde, from Illinois, offered this amendment first in 1976. In 1980 the Supreme Court upheld the Hyde amendment in a 5-4 decision, recognizing that “abortion is inherently different than other medical procedures, because no other procedure involves the purposeful termination of a potential life.” ”

Let your representatives know about this important amendment that needs to be made permanent today.
