Stop your taxes from paying for abortion
For decades, Congress has protected your money from paying for abortion. Now, some powerful government officials are trying to change that.
The Hyde Amendment and similar laws have protected taxpayers from funding elective abortion for 45 years. Now, powerful members of Congress want to take away these laws that both Democrats and Republicans have supported for nearly half a century. Billions of taxpayer dollars could be used to pay for abortion.
It is critically important for Catholics to send a strong message before Congress moves forward to impose taxpayer-funded abortion.
The following tools can be used within your networks, to raise their awareness and urge Catholics to sign the petition on NoTaxpayerAbortion.com.
