- Jan 23, 2014Brother Knights,The below link is very quick and easy to use for support of the pending law in the House or Representatives. It is H.R. 7 and will make permanent the now yearly revokable "No Federal funding for abortion" Bill. It would permanently ban federal funds from being used to pay for abortions.

Dear Brother Knights,
During this week of the 41st anniversary of the tragic Roe v. Wade decision, we are reminded of our duty as faithful citizens to stand in defense of life whenever the opportunity arises. We have one such opportunity as Congress considers the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, H.R. 7. This important legislation would permanently ban federal funds from being used to pay for abortions.
For more than 30 years, Congress has worked to ensure that taxpayer-funded government health care assistance, such as Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, do not provide funding for abortion. This work, taking the form of bill amendments, has been very successful. The Hyde Amendment, for example, has helped prevent the government from funding 675,000 abortions each year. However, these amendments are not permanent law. Passage of these amendments requires several annual actions by Congress, and, while these actions have occurred historically, it is not certain that this pattern will continue.
H.R. 7 will create in federal law a permanent and government-wide ban on funding for abortion that will not need to be renewed each year. This is a critical step in protecting the conscience rights of citizens who believe abortion to be morally wrong.
At the 131st Supreme Convention in San Antonio, we resolved to “speak out to our elected representatives about the need to enact legislation … to protect human life.” We have the opportunity to send a clear message to Congress. Click here to contact your elected representative.
As always, let us ask Our Lady’s intercession for our prayer that the Holy Spirit enlighten our elected officials to adopt laws that affirm the dignity of the human person from conception until natural death.
