Protect Life Act

Floor Speech

Location: Washington, DC


Mr. KILDEE. Madam Speaker, I rise today in opposition to H.R. 358. As a staunch pro-life member of Congress, I have always supported the Hyde Amendment. During the health care reform debate, I made it very clear on the House floor and reassured my pro-life colleagues that the Hyde Amendment was included in the Affordable Care Act. It has been the law since 1976 and it is still the law now. Not only is the Hyde Amendment included in the Affordable Care Act, but the President signed an executive order reinforcing that federal funding cannot be used for abortions. We cannot let people imply or infer that the Hyde Amendment is not already part of the Affordable Care Act. A vote in support of H.R. 358 would be an admission that the Hyde Amendment was not included in the Affordable Care Act.
