Washington: Today, Rep. Joe Barton (R-Ennis) voted for H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2017. This bill prohibits federal funds from being used for abortions by making the Hyde Amendment, and all other federally funded abortion prohibitions, permanent. Congress has passed the Hyde Amendment each year since 1976.

“All life is precious and should be respected, especially that of the unborn. H.R. 7 ensures that taxpayer dollars are not used for abortions in any way, shape, or form. As a lawmaker, I believe I have a constitutional and moral obligation to protect those who do not have the power to protect themselves.”
