Hello Hyde! 40th Anniversary!

Today is the 40th Anniversary of the Hyde Amendment. The Ammendment, named for the late Rep. Henry Hyde (R-Ill.), prohibits the use of government monies to pay for abortion procedures for Medicaid recipients and has been continued and added to federal appropriations bills since 1976. The Charlotte Lozier Institute, the research arm of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, estimates the amendment has “saved over two million unborn children” from abortion.
