Congressman warns of 'pro-abortion legislation on steroids'
Late last night, two pro-life amendments to H.R. 2740, the House Appropriations bill, were defeated by nearly uniform opposition from pro-abortion Democrats. The amendments were on pro-life policies related to conscience rights of healthcare providers and taxpayer dollars going to facilities that provide abortion. More votes are expected, and National Right to Life strongly opposes final passage of H.R. 2740. A current scorecard of pro-life votes can be viewed here.
