House passes No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act

Our Tax Dollar should Nurture Life, NOT fund its destruction
National Right to Life congratulates the House of Representatives for its vote in support of “Making the Hyde Amendment Permanent and Government-Wide No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.” H.R 7 passed by a vote of 238-183, and now goes to the Senate for its consideration.

But didn’t such a measure to permanently prevent taxpayer subsidies for abortion-covering health plans, both in Obamacare and in other federal health benefits programs already pass at least once? It did, indeed, in June 2015.

The difference? All the difference in the world. There is no longer a veto threat from pro-abortion President Barack Obama.
