U.S. Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) today released the following statement:
"Each year Ohioans join thousands of Americans as they come to Washington, D.C. to stand up for the sanctity of life, giving a voice to those that have none. I am a proud sponsor of H.R. 3, a bill that would reinstate Hyde Amendment provisions, removing funds from the Democrats' new health care law that allow for funding of abortion through state high risk pools. I have been pro-life for my entire life, and oppose the use of U.S. tax dollars to fund elective abortions. Rape, incest, or the when the life of the mother is endangered are the only exceptions I can accept. I will continue to fight to protect the lives of the unborn in the U.S. House of Representatives."
