Sign the Petition to Protect the Hyde Amendment

Jun 3, 2021

SAVE A LIFE, CONTACT CONGRESS.


WHAT?
Congress is trying to force Americans to pay for abortion.

HOW?
The Hyde Amendment and similar laws have protected taxpayers from funding elective abortion for 45 years. Now, members of Congress want to take away these laws that both Democrats and Republicans have supported for nearly half a century.

WHAT HAPPENS WITHOUT THESE PROTECTIONS?
Billions of taxpayer dollars could be used to pay for abortion.

STOP YOUR TAXES FROM PAYING FOR ABORTION

For decades, Congress has protected your money from paying for abortion. Now, some government officials are trying to change that.


2.4 Million Babies Saved

HYDE AMENDMENT

The Hyde Amendment and related laws have kept your tax dollars from paying for elective abortion. Over 2.4 MILLION Americans are alive today because of the amendment [1].

Bipartisan Legacy

HALF A CENTURY

Whether led by Democrats or Republicans, Congress and the White House have supported the amendment since it first became law in 1976.

Broad Public Support

UNITED AGAINST COERCION

Many opinion surveys show a strong majority against tax dollars paying for abortion [2]. This includes women and men across a range of income levels and racial diversity. It also includes people who are pro-life and those who are pro-choice [3].

New Extremism

A FEW COERCING THE MANY

· Once a long-time supporter of the amendment, President Biden is now committed to its repeal [4].

· The chair of the House committee in charge of funding government programs broke with long-standing, bipartisan support. She announced that the amendment will NOT be included in the upcoming funding bill [5].

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi voiced support for this decision [6].

BILLIONS in Abortion Funding

WITHOUT THE HYDE AMENDMENT

· Without the Hyde Amendment and related policies, billions of taxpayer dollars could be used to pay for abortions in the U.S. and overseas.

· Getting rid of the amendment would likely lead to many more lives lost through abortion [7]. States' health benefits would likely be held hostage. States would be forced to either include elective abortion in Medicaid or be kicked out of the federal Medicaid program.

“Vice President Biden supports repealing the Hyde Amendment because health care is a right that should not be dependent on one’s zip code or income. And, the public option will cover contraception and a woman’s constitutional right under Roe v. Wade.” https://joebiden.com/womens-agenda/.
