House Votes to Ban Federal Funding of Abortions

The Grand Old Party or GOP is historically known for freeing the slaves.  Well, they are once again chipping away at today's slavery which has the unborn imprisoned in the wombs of women who want to kill them.

The House has passed the Hyde Amendment which will permanently ban taxpayer money to fund abortions.  The measure passed 238-183.  It is a step in the right directly, but there are still flaws in it such as the exception for abortions in cases of rape or incest.

Hopefully, an amendment will be made to the Constitution which will define personhood as beginning at conception. This should close all the gaps and flaws in other laws.

Speaker Ryan released this statement:

“We are a pro-life Congress. Today we renewed our commitment to the Hyde Amendment with the passage of the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. I want to thank Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) for his tireless commitment to this cause. This legislation protects the conscience of American taxpayers by ensuring that not a single dollar of their hard-earned money goes to fund abortions. As hundreds of thousands of Americans flock to Washington for the March for Life, we must never forget that defending all of our people—especially the defenseless—must be our top priority if we want to be a good and moral nation.”

As we approach the March For Life on Friday, let us pray that abortion will be abortion from our society. Hopefully, President Trump will nominate a judge who will help overturn Roe v. Wade and protect human life from conception to natural death.
