No Tax monies for Abortion!

The U S House is scheduled to vote on H.R.3, the Smith, Lipinski "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion act" on or about this Wednesday, May 4th.

Currently we have a patchwork of laws, like the Hyde Amendment, which restrict some funding and need to be voted into place every year.

Also, in major new programs created by Obamacare, federal subsidies are now permissible.
H.R.3 would replace this hit-or-miss approach with a permanent, government-wide prohibition on federal funding of abortion and federal subsidies for health plans that cover abortion.
Please call all our Congressmen. Remember Lynch and Neal voted for the Stupak funding ban and Keating, Neal, and Tsongas voted for the Continuing Resolution which had some abortion funding restrictions.

The message is to support H.R.3 and to oppose all amendments.
