Act Now to Support Hyde Amendment

U.S. Capitol Building

For 45 years, the Hyde amendment has protected taxpayers from being forced to pay for elective abortions. It is estimated that the Hyde Amendment has saved nearly 2.5 million babies and mothers in difficult circumstances from the tragedy of abortion. 

Now, President Biden's proposed federal budget eliminates the Hyde Amendment, which has been supported by Democrats and Republicans alike for four decades.

Urge your federal representatives to prevent Americans from being forced to subsidize the taking of innocent life. Take time today to help ensure that the Hyde Amendment remains in place in the upcoming federal budget. Add your name to the petition that will be sent to members of Congress. The greater number of names and voices, the greater the impact. Sign now!
