Pro-Life Bill Cosponsored by Amash Passes House


Location: Washington, DC

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) praised the House's passage of the Protect Life Act, Thursday night. The bill, cosponsored by Amash, applies the Hyde Amendment to all government programs and ensures no federal funds will pay for abortions.

"No taxpayer should be forced to pay for an abortion. No doctor should be forced to perform an abortion against his or her will," said Amash. "Tonight, the House acted to protect taxpayers, medical personnel, and--most important--the lives of the unborn."

The Protect Life Act prohibits federal tax credits and cost-sharing reductions from being used to pay for abortions or health care plans that include abortion coverage. It also prevents local governments and health care providers that receive federal health funding from discriminating against hospitals and doctors who refuse to perform abortions or make abortion referrals.

H.R. 358 passed by a vote of 251-172.
