WASHINGTON, D.C. (04-04-11) – Americans United for Life Action President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest called on Congress to make de-funding the abortion industry “budget cut number one.”
She made the following statement: “Defunding the abortion industry should be the most bi-partisan budget cut available on Capitol Hill because more than 70 percent of Americans do not support taxpayer funding of abortion. I commend the members of the House who passed the Pence language in their long-term budget and call on the Senate to follow suit. De-funding abortion must be a part of any long-term budget.
“America cannot afford to spend millions in tax monies each year to support the highly profitable and disreputable abortion industry.”
