Tomorrow is the 40th anniversary of the Hyde Amendment.
The Hyde Amendment is the federal law that prevents U.S. taxpayer dollars from being used to pay for abortions in some key federal programs like Medicaid.
The law has saved upwards of two million lives, according to a study by Prof. Michael New.
So a blessed Happy Birthday to the life-saving Hyde Amendment!
But tragically, a deadly birthday is also approaching
Contrast that with Planned Parenthood’s 100th birthday next month, which they are spending lavishly on to “celebrate.”
Born of the eugenics movement, scornful of the lives of those they considered “unfit,” Planned Parenthood grew into the leading advocate of abortion, killing more than 330,000 babies in their facilities in the U.S. alone each year!
But abortion extremists are not content with just celebrating the legacy of killing that Planned Parenthood has left. They want more.
This summer, the Democratic party’s platform explicitly demanded for the first time that the Hyde Amendment be overturned. Hillary Clinton has made the same demand.
They would force you and me to pay for the killing of tens of thousands of innocent unborn babies each and every year. We can’t let them succeed!
National Right to Life has done more than any other group to see that year in and year out, the Hyde Amendment remained in force to protect both the unborn and the taxpayer. But now it’s under direct assault.
Every American needs to hear about this, and to be alerted that Democratic members of the U.S. House already have more than 100 co-sponsors on a bill to force us to pay for these elective abortions.
National Right to Life, with its almost 3,000 local pro-life chapters and strong grassroots network, can get the word out, now, with your help. But we can’t do it without you!
Please help with a generous contribution to inform the public, reach opinion leaders, and stop this deadly proposal in its tracks. Pro-life Americans should never have to pay for the killing of the innocent that we all find so reprehensible.
For the sake of all the additional babies who would die each year, please help today!
