Members of the House of Representatives are slated to hold hearings this week on two bills that would stop taxpayer funding of abortions. The legislation is expected to clear the House but Democrats promise to block it in the Senate.
The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, sponsored by pro-life Reps. Chris Smith and Dan Lipinski would compile all of the annual provisions that prevent federal funding of abortions into one piece of legislation. The Protect Life Act, sponsored by pro-life Rep. Joe Pitts, would apply the historic Hyde amendment language to the new health care bill President Barack Obama signed into law that allows massive abortion funding.
I still wonder why so many of my fellow Catholics support the Democrats, when news reports like this well document the Party's anti-life agenda.
Please call your representatives and Senators and urge them to support this effort to defund the abortion lobby.
