Pro-Life Congress Members Introduce Resolution to End Abortions at VA Facilities

Pro-life legislators have introduced a resolution that aims to end President Biden's policy of offering taxpayer-funded abortions at Veterans Affairs medical facilities.

Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) and Rep. Michael Cloud (R-TX) introduced the joint resolution.

“Using our VA medical facilities to provide publicly-funded abortions is an unconstitutional abuse of the system, and it will not be tolerated,” Tuberville told Fox News Digital. “No taxpayer should be forced to pay for abortion services that disregard the will of millions of Americans in states with legal protections for life, rightfully upheld by the Supreme Court last year. The interim final rule highlights this administration’s willingness to ignore the law and exploit limited federal resources to serve their extreme abortion agenda.”

Over 60 members of Congress signed the resolution of disapproval under the Congressional Review Act. The law gives Congress the power to review and block rules issued by federal agencies.

"The Biden Administration continues to advance their radical abortion on demand agenda, this time through the Department of Veterans Affairs," Cloud told Fox News Digital. "Directing the Department of Veterans Affairs to perform abortions is a clear abuse of the law and it forces taxpayers to fund abortions, something the majority of Americans oppose. I will always be a voice for the unborn and oppose taxpayer funded abortions."
