Congressman Baird Continues to Fight for the Unborn as House Democrats Roll Back Bipartisan Protections

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jim Baird released the following statement after the House Committee on Appropriations approved the FY2022 LHHS bill excluding the Hyde Amendment on a partisan basis.

“For over 40 years, the Hyde Amendment has saved millions of lives from abortions and has rightfully earned the support of every president since Jimmy Carter, until now,” said Congressman Baird. “Taking the life of an unborn child is simply unconscionable and pursuing legislation that forces taxpayers to subsidize abortions when the majority of them do not support that effort is unacceptable. Even as Democrats attempt to roll back historically bipartisan protections for the unborn, as a proud pro-life advocate, I remain committed to fighting for the most vulnerable among us.”
