New Congressional Bill Would Permanently Defund Planned Parenthood, Ban Taxpayer Funded Abortions
Please share to spread the news:

Pro-life lawmakers introduced a bill this week to protect American taxpayers from being forced to fund abortions

The Protecting Life and Taxpayers Act permanently would ban direct funding of abortions as well as funding to groups like Planned Parenthood that provide and promote abortions.

“Like … millions of Americans, I strongly believe our hard-earned tax dollars should never be used to foot the bill for abortion procedures,” said U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, a lead sponsor of the bill.

“This legislation builds off of our effort to ensure that taxpayers in Iowa, and across the country, are not forced to pay for a practice they passionately object to and which violates their own beliefs.”

Other sponsors include U.S. Sens. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tennessee, Kevin Cramer, R-North Dakota, Steve Daines, R-Montana, and Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Mississippi.

Americans do directly and indirectly fund abortions with their tax dollars every year. The Hyde Amendment currently prohibits direct taxpayer-funding of elective abortions through Medicaid, but most Democratic Party leaders now are calling to end it. Currently, 15 states also force taxpayers to fund abortions directly through their state medical assistance programs.

Additionally, Planned Parenthood, which does about 330,000 abortions a year, receives about half a billion tax dollars annually. Though that money is not supposed to be used directly for abortions, it does subsidize the group’s life-destroying practices.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
