Did you know that today abortion advocates are working to force you to pay for abortions – all abortions? Since 1976, the Hyde Amendment has blocked federal funding of abortions under Medicaid. The Obama Administration refused to attach The Hyde Amendment to Obamacare, putting your healthcare dollars at risk. And today, the Hyde Amendment is under fire again. No surprise that the biggest cheerleaders of this horrific development are none other than Planned Parenthood’s President Cecile Richards and Hillary Clinton. Abortion advocates have even gone so far as to get the most extreme anti-Hyde language in history inserted into the official Democratic National Committee platform. Even sitting Democratic Senators have called these new extreme measures "crazy".
Your First Amendment Conscience rights AND your money are under attack. If the Hyde Amendment is repealed, all measures protecting you from paying for abortions are gone. You will be in the business of funding abortion against your will.
We MUST stop this horrendous legislation from moving forward. The Hyde Amendment has saved countless lives and protected the conscience of millions of Americans. It is up to us to defend the unborn. If attempts to repeal Hyde are successful, our tax dollars would FUND the abortions. Period. We cannot have the blood of the innocent on our hands. The U.S. Government – our government – cannot go into the abortion business. It’s heinous enough that our tax dollars contribute to the operation of Planned Parenthood nationwide and that Obamacare attempts to force abortion and life-ending drugs and devices on nuns, but repealing the Hyde Amendment is even worse, since this amendment specifically blocks the funding of abortion in Medicaid.
AUL successfully defended the Hyde Amendment before the Supreme Court, and has been fighting this battle for years.
