Pro-Life Amendment


"The Hyde Amendment and similar laws have protected taxpayers from funding elective abortion for 45 years. Certain members of Congress want to take away these laws that Democrats and Republicans have supported for nearly half a century. Billions of taxpayer dollars could be used to pay for abortion."

May be an image of monument "It is critically important for Catholics to send a strong message before Congress moves forward to impose taxpayer-funded abortion."


"...[We] urge [all] parishioners to sign the petition at"


From the website:

"Save Hyde. Save lives.

Taxpayer dollars should NOT pay for abortion.

The majority of Americans agree with this - both Democrats and Republicans.


For 45 years, the Hyde amendment and similar laws have protected taxpayers from being forced to pay for elective abortion.


The Hyde amendment has been signed into law every year since 1976, whether the Congress and the White House were led by Republicans or Democrats.


The Hyde Amendment has saved nearly 2.5 million babies and mothers in difficult circumstances from the tragedy of abortion.


An overwhelming majority of Americans, including low-income women and women of color who are most impacted by it, support the Hyde Amendment and laws that prevent government-funded abortion.


We urge you, in the strongest possible terms, to ensure that the Hyde Amendment and all similar life-saving appropriations riders remain in place during the 117th Congress and beyond.


Do not force Americans to subsidize the taking of innocent life. Oppose any bill, including any appropriations bill, that expands taxpayer funding of abortion."
