US bishops’ chairmen respond to House vote to force taxpayers to fund elective abortions
August 03, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: In a 219-208 party-line vote, the US House of Representatives approved a package of appropriations bills. The legislation, the bishops’ conference notes, “would force taxpayers to pay for elective abortions and would have the effect of forcing health care providers and professionals to perform and refer for abortion against their deeply-held beliefs, as well as forcing employers and insurers to cover and pay for abortion.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
