FRC Commends Effort to Protect Pro-Life Riders, Prevent Taxpayer Funded Abortions

WASHINGTON, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Family Research Council commends the over 180 Members of Congress who signed a letter directed to the White House urging support for long-standing pro-life policies in upcoming appropriations bills. These riders prohibit tax dollars for domestic and overseas abortions, destructive human embryo experimentation, and organizations that support or participate in coercive abortion programs. The letter requests that the riders be included in any legislation coming out of the Appropriations Committee, as they have been for the past thirty years.


"These pro-life riders have been supported consistently by a broad majority of Americans," said FRC President Tony Perkins, "I applaud this bipartisan coalition led by Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Heath Shuler (D-NC) for speaking out on behalf of many Americans who do not wish to see their tax dollars used to pay for the death of unborn children.

"This is an issue that crosses party lines as both Republican and Democratic Presidents have renewed these riders year after year. I join these Members in urging Speaker Pelosi to refrain from taking an extreme departure from long-standing policies that prevent the taxpayer funding of abortions here at home or overseas.

"Unfortunately, the Democratic Leadership has already gutted one of the riders by including $50 million for the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA) in the Omnibus even if they support the human rights abuses of China's one-child policy. For the first time in eight years, the U.S. will be knowingly subsidizing forced abortion and sterilization."
