Rep. Kelly Supports No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act

Jan 24, 2017 Issues: Abortion

WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Mike Kelly (R-PA) – a member of the House Ways and Means Committee – issued the following statement today in support of H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2017, which was passed by the House of Representatives this afternoon. Rep. Kelly is a co-sponsor of this legislation.

“The notion that hard-earned taxpayer dollars should never fund abortion is not only popular, it’s just plain commonsense. Our society is at its strongest when we are doing everything we can do to protect the most vulnerable among us, including unborn children. Especially as hundreds of thousands of American families and students prepare to come to our nation’s capital to rally in support of defending all human life, it is more than fitting that America’s Congress takes this action and helps begin a new pro-life chapter for our country.”
