Measure Overturns Obama Rule Forcing States to Fund Abortion Providers

 

WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a measure, 230-188, that overturns an Obama administration rule forcing states to fund abortion providers with taxpayer dollars. Indiana’s seven pro-life U.S. representatives voted to advance the measure and protect taxpayers – Reps. Jackie Walorski (IN-2), Jim Banks (IN-3), Todd Rokita (IN-2), Susan Brooks (IN-5), Luke Messer (IN-6), Larry Bucshon (IN-8) and Trey Hollingsworth (IN-9).

“States should not be forced to fund the abortion industry against their will,” said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “We thank the seven Indiana representatives who agree with the majority of their constituents that taxpayer dollars should not flow to abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood.”

H.J. Res. 43 is now eligible for a vote in the U.S. Senate. Indiana Right to Life previously spoke in favor of an identical measure, H.J. Res. 39, sponsored by Indiana representative, Luke Messer, and cosponsored by 140 of his colleagues.
