Statement from Maureen Ferguson, Senior Fellow for The Catholic Association:

“It is tragic and ironic that pro-abortion Democrats are insisting on subsidizing the taking of innocent lives in a bill aimed at saving lives. The Hyde amendment, which protects American taxpayers from funding abortion, has had bi-partisan support and consensus for more than 40 years. Any bill which excludes Hyde cannot claim to advance unity. Democrats have hidden this abortion funding under the guise of “pandemic relief” because a majority of Americans don’t want to pay for abortions – in fact, recent polling shows 58% oppose domestic funding for abortion.”
