No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act
The U.S. House of Representatives voted 238-183 on January 24 for H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, to make the Hyde Amendment permanent. The Hyde Amendment is annual legislation attached to the budget which prevents your tax dollars from paying directly for most abortions. The legislation now goes to the U.S. Senate for consideration, where it may have a filibuster from the pro-abortion minority of senators.
ACTION NEEDED: Contact Senator Debbie Stabenow and Senator Gary Peters and tell them: "Please support H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. A majority of Americans oppose our tax dollars being used to pay for abortions."
Stop dismemberment abortions
Protecting unborn children from the brutality of dismemberment abortions is a legislative priority for Michigan. A law is needed because D&E dismemberment abortions are as brutal as the partial-birth abortion method, which is now illegal in Michigan and the United States. Legislation has been introduced adding D&E dismemberment abortions to our state's ban on partial-birth abortion. Learn more about dismemberment abortions.
ACTION NEEDED: Circulate the Petition to End Dismemberment Abortions. The petition can be found here.
