Catholic Biden runs afoul of U.S. bishops by dropping Hyde Amendment from budget:
President's proposed budget omits provision banning federal funding for abortion
President Biden drew a rebuke from U.S. bishops for omitting from his proposed $6 trillion budget the Hyde Amendment, which bars federal funding for abortion, breaking with a budgetary precedent in place since 1976.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a statement Friday by Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas, chairman of the Committee on Pro-Life Activities, urging Congress to “reject the Administration’s proposal to subsidize the deaths of unborn children.”
“I call on all government leaders to work toward a budget that truly builds up the common good of all,” he said. “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.”
The statement came shortly after Mr. Biden made good on his 2019 campaign promise to jettison the Hyde Amendment, reversing his previous support for the bipartisan measure included in every federal budget for 45 years. --->READ MORE HERE
Biden’s $6 Trillion Spending Proposal Forces American Taxpayers To Fund Abortions:
President Joe Biden’s $6 trillion spending proposal will force American taxpayers to fund abortions after removing the Hyde Amendment.
Since the 1970s, Congress has included the Hyde Amendment in spending bills to prevent taxpayer dollars from funding abortions except if the mother’s life is in danger, she was raped, or there was incest. Biden’s newest spending plan excludes this provision protecting Americans’ consciences and instead reinstates giving federal finances out to cover killing babies.
Studies show that Americans largely oppose funding abortions in the United States and overseas but Biden’s commitment to appeasing pro-abortion activists and progressives appears to outweigh public opinion.
“For more than four decades, the Hyde family of pro-life policies has kept American taxpayers out of the abortion business, with the Hyde Amendment itself saving nearly 2.5 million lives. The Biden budget throws that longstanding, bipartisan consensus out the window to fulfill a campaign promise to the radical abortion lobby,” said Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. --->READ MORE HERE
