Rep. Ken Buck votes to permanently prohibit federal funding for abortions
Rep. Ken Buck, R-Colo., voted Tuesday to make permanent a United States policy of prohibiting federal funding for abortion.
According to a news release from Buck, since 1976, majorities in Congress have supported adding the Hyde Amendment, a provision that prohibits federal dollars from paying for abortions, onto federal funding bills. H.R. 7 permanently codifies that prohibition.
