House Resolution 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, sponsored by Reps. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Dan Lipinski (D-Il.), will establish a permanent, government-wide policy against federal funding of abortion. This legislation is urgently needed because the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) authorized massive federal subsidies for health plans that will pay for abortion on demand.
Currently there is a patchwork of various Pro-Life federal laws and rules that prohibit the use of taxpayer dollars in specific programs and funding streams from paying for elective abortions. Today, these current restrictions are not sufficient to stop all taxpayer funding of abortion and abortion providers. Right now, the most dangerous and sizable loophole is in Obamacare that will force taxpayers to fund elective abortion coverage.
Below is the Texas Congressional Delegation indicating those who voted in favor of the legislation. Please call or email your Congressman and thank them for voting to keep taxpayer dollars from funding abortion and the abortion industry.
