Republican Senator Introduces Bill to Permanently Ban Tax-Funded Abortions
Steven Ertelt | Jan 26, 2023 | 8:09PM
Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., along with 46 other senators, yesterday introduced the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. This legislation would establish a permanent prohibition on federal funding for abortion, replacing the current restrictions with a single, government-wide standard.
‘Most Americans do not want their hard-earned tax dollars being used for abortion-on-demand, but our current patchwork of regulations has brought years of uncertainty, Wicker said. ‘The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act would simplify federal rules, ensuring that American tax dollars are never used for the destruction of innocent, unborn life.
For over 40 years, an inconsistent and haphazard set of policies have regulated federal funding for abortion. This legislation would make permanent the restrictions on funding for elective abortion and elective abortion coverage, including the Hyde Amendment, which currently rely on yearly approval. It would also eliminate Obamacare’s taxpayer subsidies for elective abortion coverage on the Affordable Care Act exchanges through refundable tax credits.’
Note: J. D. Vance, R-Ohio was one of the 46 US Senators who joined with Senator Wicker in introducing the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. (See the names of the other 45 Senators by clicking the button above.)

With the overturn of Roe v. Wade on June 24, 2022 in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health Organization, the individual States can now enact laws to protect the unborn. In its June 24, 2022 decision the Inited States Supreme Court stated there is no US Constitutional right to abortion. We thought each State would enact legislation without fear that a federal court would permit an injunction to the new law. However, even common pleas court judges have permitted injunctions against the State laws. Since the Dobbs Decision, Democratic legislators are doing everything they can to try to codify an abortion right into Federal Law, and State Legislators will need to move quickly to codify their State laws to protect the unborn.
According to Brian Clowes, PhD in an article published April 28, 2021, called "How Does Abortion Affect the United States?," the United States has aborted:
2 United States presidents and 2 vice-presidents
7 Supreme Court Justices, including one Chief Justice
42 Nobel Prize winners
108 state governors
118 U.S. senators and 891 U.S. congressmen
653 United States ambassadors
206 Olympic medalists, including 80 gold medalists
