Washington, D.C. – SBA Pro-Life America slammed U.S. Rep. Lori Chavez-DeRemer for flip-flopping on taxpayer funding of abortion:
“As a candidate, Lori Chavez-DeRemer decried taxpayer funding of abortion as ‘extreme’ and pledged to ‘always be on the side of life in Congress.’ Now Chavez-DeRemer is doing the opposite, blocking a bill that would permanently stop taxpayer funding of abortion across the federal government. This betrayal is exactly why so many voters – especially the GOP base – distrust politicians in Washington.
“Opposition to taxpayer-funded abortions has been a mainstay GOP position for decades and reflects the consensus of 60% of Americans. Because of the Hyde Amendment, approximately 2.5 million Americans are alive today who otherwise would have been aborted with taxpayer dollars. This should be an easy vote for the GOP majority to take and defend politically. Pro-life voters across the nation are watching.”
Susan B. Anthony Pro-Life America is a network of more than one million pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
