Huizenga: We Must Defend Those Who Cannot Defend Themselves
Today, Congressman Bill Huizenga (MI-02) released the following statement after voting in support of H.R. 7, The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2017:
"The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2017 is an incredibly important step in the fight to defend the unborn while also protecting taxpayers," said Congressman Huizenga. "Traditionally, measures which prevent taxpayer dollars from being used to perform abortions have garnered bipartisan support. However, liberals in Washington have recently made it their mission to eliminate these longstanding protections and force families in West Michigan and across the nation to violate their deeply held beliefs by funding abortion on demand."
"This significant legislation extends the Hyde Amendment to all federal programs, while also prohibiting the use of ObamaCare subsidies to purchase plans that include abortion coverage. We must defend those who cannot defend themselves. Taxpayer dollars should not be used to end the life of unborn children."
