No Taxpayer Abortion Petition

Sign the Petition. Urge Congress to Protect Life.

Dear Brother Knights:

Your immediate action is necessary to protect taxpayer funding from being used to pay for abortion.

Over the last few weeks, the Appropriations Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives has considered legislation to fund the U.S. government without the long-standing, bi-partisan provisions that prohibit taxpayer dollars from being used to pay for abortion.

Next week, the same committee is scheduled (as soon as Monday) to eliminate the popular Hyde Amendment.  First introduced in 1976 by our brother Knight, the late U.S. Rep. Henry Hyde of Illinois, this important provision has saved the lives of more than 2.4 million children.

I urge you to take action today and sign this petition sponsored by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops asking Congress to preserve these long-standing provisions and to protect human life.

Our 2021 Knights of Columbus/Marist Polling found that 58% of Americans oppose the use of taxpayer dollars to fund abortion.  Sign the USCCB petition today to remind Congress that Americans do not want their taxpayer dollars to be used to take innocent, unborn life.

Thank you for all you do to promote a culture of life!
