National Right to Life Asks Representatives to Oppose HEROES Act

National Right to Life President Carol Tobias
The National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) wrote a letter to legislators in the House of Representatives asking them to oppose H.R. 6800, the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions Act, otherwise known as the HEROES Act. The NRLC accuses the bill of including excessive spending that will benefit an abortion industry that already appears to be thriving during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The letter includes three main points:

-"H.R. 6800 allows Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider to qualify for loans intended for small businesses."

-"H.R. 6800 issues grants to provide enhanced premium pay to certain categories of workers, and there is nothing barring abortion industry employees from receiving this additional money."

-"H.R. 6800 creates a $100 billion dollar fund called Health Care Provider Relief Fund and this money could flow to abortion providers."
