Hyde Amendment

“For over 40 years, both Democrats and Republicans have understood the value” of the Hyde Amendment

Editor’s note.  Rep. Gary Palmer (R-AL)spoke in favor of H.R. 18, “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.”  

Mr. PALMER. Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of H.R. 18, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. This bill codifies the Hyde amendment which ensures that taxpayer dollars aren’t spent on abortions.

For over 40 years, both Democrats and Republicans have understood the value of this important protection which has saved more than 2.4 million lives. The right to life precedes all other rights and is fundamental to everything I believe. 

I urge my colleagues across the aisle to embrace life and support H.R. 18. As President Biden said in 1994, ‘‘Those of us who are opposed to abortion should not be compelled to pay for them.’’
