U.S. Representative Justin Amash (MI-03) will be speaking on the House floor on Wednesday in support of H.R. 3, a bill he cosponsored to prohibit federal funding of abortions and abortion coverage.
"I fully support legislation that will strengthen existing federal laws that ban taxpayer-funded abortions. It is simply unconscionable that our government would force anyone to pay for the taking of innocent human life," said Amash.
The bill would make permanent current federal laws that prohibit taxpayer dollars from being used to fund abortions. In addition, the bill would prevent taxpayer dollars from subsidizing insurance providers that include coverage for elective abortions.
