Statement on Advance of HHS Funding without Hyde Amendment
Democrats for Life of America is disappointed that yesterday, a small group of abortion extremists in our party, namely a congressional subcommittee, voted to advance a spending bill for the Department of Health and Human Services which did not contain the Hyde Amendment.
60% of Americans, including a plurality of Democratic voters, do not want their tax dollars funding the killing of preborn children.
We call on both our courageous pro-life Democratic officials and our supporters to speak up and ensure that the Hyde Amendment is included in the final version of the HHS budget.
Speak up for the two million unique, irreplaceable lives saved by Hyde, and the millions we stand to lose if the government subsidizes abortion. This spending bill is still a long way from passage, so even though this vote is disappointing, there's still time to call and email your representatives and urge them to be on the right, life-affirming side of history.
There are FIVE House Dems that can #SaveHyde.
