Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen applauded a hearing on The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act by the House Judiciary's Committee's Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice. The bill, which Ros-Lehtinen is a co-sponsor of, would prohibit any taxpayer funding for abortions. This hearing marks an important step toward getting this legislation before Congress and to a vote.
Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:
"I applaud my colleagues for taking this important step and fighting for those who have no voice. Federal funds should not be used to pay for abortions. We must continue to work to protect the unborn and to preserve the life of these innocents."
