House passes No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act
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.
