Washington, D.C. – Congressman Tim Walberg (MI-07) today voted for H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act, which makes the Hyde Amendment permanent and prohibits taxpayer dollars from being used to perform an abortion. 
 
“There has been widespread and longstanding support for the Hyde Amendment, which protects taxpayer dollars from being used to take an innocent life. Millions of children have had a chance at a fulfilling life because of this amendment—it should be made permanent. As a steadfast defender of the rights of the unborn, I will continue standing up for the sanctity of every human life every step of the way,” said Walberg.

Congressman Walberg serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the House Education and the Workforce Committee as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions. For more information on Walberg’s work in Congress visit walberg.house.gov.
