The Hyde Amendment was passed in 1977 following the legalization of abortion. Its purpose to prevent persons and religious organizations from being forced to pay for abortions against their conscience, their religious beliefs, or moral beliefs.
Hillary Clinton would like to reverse this amendment and force taxpayers to provide free abortions on demand. She would also like to lift all time limits for abortions allowing an abortion to occur up to the day of birth. Abortion limits and prevention continues to be a fight for human rights. With so many opposed to this act against humanity itself, the notion of free funding with taxpayer money is absurd.
At over 300,000 abortions a year, it is also an undue and unjust burden placed on taxpayers struggling with their own household bills.
We, the undersigned citizens of the United States, ask that the Hyde Amendment not be repealed and that the choice of abortion and its cost lie solely on the person electing that life choice, not on taxpayers.
The Citizens against taxpayer funded abortions petition to United States Congress was written by Karen Nimmo and is in the category Human Rights at GoPetition.
