House RSC leads 200 Republicans, Demanding Congress Save Hyde

WASHINGTON — Today, Republican Study Committee Chairman Jim Banks and 199 of his Republican colleagues sent a letter to congressional leaders pledging to oppose any government funding bill that eliminates or weakens the Hyde Amendment or other current-law, pro-life appropriations provisions.

The Hyde amendment is a four decade-old ban on taxpayer-funded abortions that has suddenly been placed on the chopping block by radical Democrats, despite the fact that it’s received bipartisan support from every president since Jimmy Carter and even Joe Biden expressed support for it as recently as 2019.
