Republicans Will Only Sign Coronavirus Bill If It Includes Gutting Federal Funds For Abortion

Republicans are using the bill for coronavirus prevention to try and gut any federal funds for abortions.

Bloomberg News reporter Erik Wasson reported that the GOP wants language about the Hyde Amendment.

“A key sticking point in the talks appears to be GOP demands to include Hyde amendment language in the bill to prevent federal funds from being used for abortion,” he tweeted.

NARAL chief Ilyse Hogue tweeted that the idea that the law would force the government to pay for abortions is a lie.

“The fact that the GOP would use the #CoronavirusPandemic to spread more falsehoods and grind an ideological ax is sickening and perverse,” she said.
