Can We Make America a Country of Life Again ?
The bill, H.R. 7, co-sponsored by Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Dan Lipinski (D-IL) was introduced on January 24, 2017.
During the debate, pro-life congressmen Smith focused on the humanity of pre-born children. “We treat them as tumors, warts to be exorcised.”
The U.S. House of Representatives voted 238 to 183 to permanently ban taxpayer funding of abortion
This legislation would also prohibit federal subsidies in the form of Obamacare tax credits for those ACA health plans that include abortion, and require full transparency of abortion coverage in Obamacare plans so that Americans who object to abortion can make informed decisions about their choice of healthcare plan.
This makes permanent the so-called Hyde Amendment permanent. Thus far the amendment, whch prohibits federal money from being used to fund abortions through Medicaid, has been subject to annual renewal.
Family Research Council (FRC) president Tony Perkins also urged the Senate to take up the bill and said, “Following an election in which voters chose a pro-life president and a pro-life Congress, our nation is moving toward a new era where all human beings, born and unborn, are protected under the law.”
“Abortion is not healthcare, and should not be funded since we know government funding of abortion increases it,” Perkins continued. “Passage of this bill is a victory not just for taxpayers but women, and their unborn children.”
The White House released a statement saying, “the Administration strongly supports H.R. 7…if the President were presented with H.R. 7 in its present form, he would sign the bill.”
Please call your Senators and Senator Majority Leader and ask them to do the same.

Indeed abortion is the “greatest human genocide” in history.
