H.R. 7 – The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act

H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, would bar federal funding for abortions except in cases of rape, incest, or if the mother’s life were threatened. In effect, the measure would apply the Hyde amendment’s abortion funding restriction to the operations of the entire federal government.

Currently, the Hyde amendment applies only to money authorized through the Department of Health and Human Services and it must be renewed every year by Congress. By writing the abortion funding restriction into federal law, H.R. 7 would end the need for Congress to approve the Hyde amendment – as well as all other abortion funding restrictions – annually. Further, it would extend the ban on abortion spending to areas not currently covered, such as Obamacare.
