SENATE: VOTE NO TO PRO-ABORTION SPENDING BILL
November 19, 2021, in a 220-213 vote, U.S. Congress rammed through a spending bill forcing taxpayers to fund abortions. We need to ask influential U.S. Senators to support the Hyde Amendment, which forbids the U.S. government from using our tax dollars to kill babies in the womb.
The massive so-called "Build Back Better" spending bill currently does not include the Hyde Amendment for the first time since the amendment’s implementation in 1976. The legislation has also removed the Weldon Amendment, which provides conscience protections for healthcare workers.
We must tell our senators that including taxpayer-funded abortions in the appropriations bill violates the trust of the American people in their federal government.
A Marist survey shows that in January 2018, 64 percent of Americans opposed using tax dollars to pay for a woman’s abortion.
We must act now to convince our senators to do whatever is necessary to prevent our money from being used to kill unborn babies.
It’s up to us, the American people, to stop the reconciliation bill from providing taxpayer-funded abortions. Senator Joe Manchin and Senator Kyrsten Sinema are the deciding votes. This petition will go directly to Senator Manchin and Senator Sinema to request that the Hyde Amendment and the Weldon Amendment be included. By signing the petition, you are letting the Senate know that you are against this spending bill without protections for the unborn and conscience rights.
The bipartisan Hyde Amendment that had been in place for decades is credited for saving 2.4 million babies from abortion, according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute.
If this spending bill passes in the Senate, there will be nothing preventing the funding of abortions in Medicaid and elective abortions will become more common.
