I received the following message from the Susan B. Anthony List, a Pro-Life advocacy organization.


“It is black letter law that not one dime of federal tax money can be used to fund any abortion... . I'm just telling you factually right now that the Hyde amendment is the law of the land." - Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO)

“There are no federal tax dollars that will fund abortion under the bill. The Hyde Amendment…..already bars federal funding for abortion. It still exists. It will not change. There is nothing in the bill that will change that." - Rep. Ron Klein (D-FL)

"I do not believe there will be a change in the Hyde amendment." - Sen. Arlin Specter (D-PA)


The Capps (Amendment to HR 3200 – ObamaCare – Government-run healthcare . . .) language explicitly permits the two things forbidden in the Hyde Amendment -- federal government funding for abortion and funding for plans that cover abortion.

So much for continuing longstanding federal policy on federal funding of abortions!
