Action urged on DC abortion funding ban
Catholic World News - July 12, 2011
The National Committee for a Human Life Amendment (NCHLA)--which works closely with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops on abortion-related legislation--is urging pro-life Americans to contact their representatives to prevent the restoration of public funding for abortions in the District of Columbia.
“Beginning with fiscal year 1989, Congress has approved the Dornan Amendment to prevent all congressionally appropriated funds, federal and local, from being used for elective abortion in the District of Columbia,” the NCHLA noted in a recent statement. “The policy has remained in place every year except fiscal years 1994 to 1996 and, most recently, 2010. The ban was restored for fiscal year 2011.”
