Hyde Amendment

President Biden “trying to shatter years of congressional bipartisanship” over passage of Hyde Amendment

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

Mrs. MCCLAIN. Mr. Speaker, for more than 40 years, Joe Biden has been a staunch supporter of the Hyde amendment. So have the American people. Just this past January, polling found that nearly 6 in 10 Americans oppose using tax dollars to terminate innocent lives. That number includes a majority of Independents and nearly one-third of Democrats. 

For decades, congressional Democrats joined Republicans in a truly bipartisan effort to ensure tax dollars of hardworking Americans do not pay for abortions. Unfortunately, President Biden is trying to shatter years of congressional bipartisanship with a radical budget that has no Hyde amendment protections. The President ran on unity, yet his first budget proposal immediately divides. 

This Congress must take back its congressional responsibility and craft spending bills which protect the lives of the unborn, just as past Congresses have done since 1976.
