Washington – On Thursday, the 42nd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, the House of Representatives voted to pass the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. This legislation will prevent the use of federal funds for any abortion, including tax credits for Obamacare healthcare plans that include abortion coverage.

“Every child deserves protection under the law, including those who have not yet been born,” said Congressman Conaway. “Current laws provide federal funding for some abortions and tax credits for certain healthcare plans covering abortions. This is entirely unacceptable. Taxpayers should not be responsible for funding any abortion, at any time. I’m proud to support this legislation today to correct this deplorable practice and I will continue to fight for the lives of the unborn every chance I get.
