WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congress voted to right an illegal wrong by the Biden-Harris administration through passage of the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2024.
“Today the House took a powerful step to rein in Biden’s radical abortion agenda. The House voted to halt Biden’s illegal policy of taxpayer-funded abortions in Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals nationwide,” said SBA Pro-Life America President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The Biden-Harris administration is using the VA for their radical abortion agenda instead of focusing on the pressing needs of wounded, ill and homeless veterans. VA hospitals should not be weaponized by using taxpayer dollars to fund Biden-Harris’ culture wars. The administration is actively violating longstanding law and ignoring the will of the American people who don’t want their hard-earned tax dollars funding abortions.
“We thank all of our pro-life allies in the House for courageously standing up to the Biden administration and reinforcing the existing law against using taxpayer dollars for abortion.”
