BREAKING: Democrats remove the longstanding Hyde Amendment

The Hyde Amendment bans federal funding of domestic abortions, except in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother from the budget. 

“Democratic leadership in the House has put Hyde on the chopping block,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “After 45 years of bipartisan support, Democrats in the House want to destroy a measure designed to save human lives.”
