More than 180 U.S. House lawmakers said Thursday that they remain strongly opposed to any legislation that forces taxpayers to pay for the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

In a letter first reported about at Breitbart, the 181 lawmakers promised to stand with the American people on the issue as pro-abortion Democrats attempt to get rid of popular, long-standing bans on taxpayer funding for elective abortions in the United States and overseas.

“Taxpayers should not be forced to pay for abortion domestically or internationally,” the lawmakers wrote. “The consciences of health care providers who do not want to participate in abortion should be respected. Funding should not go to international organizations that are complicit in forced abortion and involuntary sterilization.”

The letter, addressed to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, thanked the two for their “unwavering commitment” to the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits taxpayer funding for abortions in Medicaid.

Most of us wonder why it took our elected officials so long to see the division and its cause. Abortion is divisive with about half on each side. It’s important to know abortion is not the business of government.

It’s strictly private business between obstetrician and patient.

Nobody has a problem with federal funding for pre-natal medical services to impoverished expectant women. The hostility arises when anti-abortion persons are required to share in the costs for acts they abhor.

Such great news! If a human isn’t even guaranteed the right to be born, no other “right” matters.

Inflation, shortages rising cost in every field, no leadership, spend spend spend, without thought or care 300 million enroute to the Taliban WTF is Biden Thinking? Biden slips and tells all how he won the election, it’s who gets to count the votes that counts. worried about States voteing law changes it will stop election fraud something the democrats are very worried about. Biden acts that he is the president of the blue states and illegal’s only, His failed adjenda is the hallmark of his radical administration, this is what happens when they choose “who gets to count the vote” in the democrat strong holds. Now we have stage white house rooms, hidden from reporters, giant wall teleprompter, concealed ear voice relays, fart proof sound disapaters, and he still fxxxs everything up, this is the United Staes of America, not the biden wantaby dictatorship, joe biden man without a country, his America last policy is blowing up in his face this is what happens when the father and son team travel the world at the tax payors expense with their hands out, looking for monetary gain, at the cost of loyalty to America. Now that more and more has become public information joe biden is attempting to change and alter our constitution to hide behind smoke screens to ease their personal gain against the rules and laws. Return their pot of gold received from China and Russia taken form them for promises to do what? Recent court ruling shows a check on bidens power grabs, his total avoidance of any due process, for his implementation of executive directives without any regard for the legislative branch or any State considerations, let alone the American public at large. This trend will continue until his lust for political power and the return of American values without the dictatorship he is trying to put into effect.
