The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) is urging Catholics to contact President Biden and their Members of Congress, asking that they oppose public funding of abortion.
On May 28, President Biden released his Fiscal Year 2022 budget in which he proposes to eliminate the Hyde Amendment and some related pro-life provisions. Calling for elimination of the Hyde Amendment in a president’s budget is unprecedented.
Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann, Chairman of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities issued a statement expressing deep concerns, saying:
“I call on all government leaders to work toward a budget that truly builds up the common good of all. This should include the many proposals in the President’s budget submission that seek to protect vulnerable people. And it must also preserve the Hyde Amendment and related provisions which have protected millions of unborn babies, and mothers in difficult circumstances, from the tragedy of abortion.”
Archbishop Naumann’s full statement can be read here.
Without the Hyde Amendment and related policies, billions of taxpayer dollars could be used to pay for abortion in the United States and throughout the world.
Don’t let our government make you pay for the taking of innocent human life.
Contact the President and express your strong disagreement with his decision to force taxpayers to fund abortion on demand. At the same time, tell Congress to keep the Hyde Amendment and related policies in federal law and to oppose any bill that expands taxpayer funding of abortion.
