Editor’s note. The following was sent out today by the Office of the Vice President.
The Vice President today met with Chairman Chris Smith and members of the House Pro-Life Caucus to discuss the American Health Care Act and President Trump’s commitment to repealing and replacing Obamacare with a health care system that actually works. The House legislation, which could be considered by the House of Representatives this week, includes protections against taxpayer funding being used for abortions.
The National Right to Life Committee last week endorsed the American Health Care Act for ‘restoring the longstanding principles of the Hyde Amendment with respect to federally funded health coverage.’
At the conclusion of the meeting, Vice President Pence reaffirmed his and President Trump’s ongoing commitment to protecting the lives of the unborn.
The list of participants was as follows:
Congressman Robert Aderholt
Congressman Brian Babin
Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler
Congressman Trent Franks
Congressman Pete Olson
Congressman Robert Pittenger
Congressman Keith Rothfus
Congressman Chris Smith
Congressman Randy Weber
