Rep. Ken Buck, voted Tuesday to permanently prohibiting taxpayer funding of abortion.
Buck voted for H.R. 7, permanently codifying the Hyde Amendment which prohibits federal dollars from paying for abortions. The bill also ensures that federal subsidies will no longer be used for Affordable Care Act plans that cover abortions.
“No taxpayer should be forced, against their moral or religious conscience, to fund an abortion,” Buck said. “Americans and Congress have prohibited federal funding of abortion for decades, and this bill simply makes that prohibition permanent.”
