Here’s an update to yesterday’s blog on H.R. 7, aka the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.”
Last night at 4:49 pm, the House of Representatives by a vote of 238 to 183 with 11 members not voting, passed this ideological, antiwomen’s reproductive healthcare bill. The 238 yea votes included 3 Democrats (Cuellar, Lipinski, Peterson) and every Republican who voted.
I checked out the roll-call vote. Here are the Ayes. These so called Representatives voted to make the Hyde Amendment and the Global Gag Rule (the Helms Amendment) permanent. And in addition, this vote denies federal subsidies to any person or small businesses who have healthcare plan under the Affordable Care Act that covers abortion. Contact them and express your outrage at their lack of concern for women’s lives.
