Speaker Ryan: The Hyde Amendment Will Remain Central in Our Fight for Life | Speaker.gov

WASHINGTON—House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) issued the following statement on the 40th anniversary of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits federal funding for abortions:

“No American taxpayer should be forced to pay for abortions. The Hyde Amendment has been the cornerstone of protecting conscience for 40 years and is responsible for saving more than 2 million American lives. Make no mistake: The Hyde Amendment will remain central in our fight for life until the day Roe v. Wade is overturned entirely.”
