The Hyde Amendment is laws that took impact in 1980 to ban federal funds from getting used to carry out abortions, with exceptions for live-saving conditions or being pregnant ensuing from rape or incest.
“We are very disappointed about the COVID-19 relief package’s exclusion of the Hyde Amendment, a longstanding bipartisan policy that prevents taxpayer funding for abortion,” reads the letter.
“We’re even more upset that the Biden administration is supporting this bill. As pro-life leaders in the evangelical community, we publicly supported President Biden’s candidacy with the understanding that there would be engagement [with] us on the issue of abortion and particularly the Hyde Amendment.”
The Evangelicals then stated that they felt used and betrayed as a result of, to acquire their assist, they had been informed that there could be dialogue with them however acknowledged that it hadn’t occurred to date.

Last month, the president of a Catholic civil rights group launched a scathing rebuke of the Equality Act launched by Democrats, saying it promotes “the most comprehensive assault on Christianity ever written into law.”
Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights, stated in a press launch that the “patently anti-Christian” laws would permit “gay rights to trump religious rights.”
He stated that though the act claims to be about “ending discrimination,” and that will certainly be the intention, the repercussions would successfully secularize spiritual entities and power adherents to violate spiritual codes of conduct.
“Health care providers would be forced to provide hormone therapies and surgical procedures that are required to change the physical characteristics associated with sex changes,” Donohue famous, asking if anybody could be allowed to object, or level out the “long-term physical and mental problems associated with sex reassignment.”
Kansas City Archbishop Joseph Naumann stated in a current interview that Biden ought to acknowledge that his assist for abortion contradicts his professed Catholic religion.
“The president should stop defining himself as a devout Catholic, and acknowledge that his view on abortion is contrary to Catholic moral teaching,” Naumann stated.
“It would be a more honest approach from him to say he disagreed with his church on this important issue and that he was acting contrary to church teaching,” the archbishop added.
