Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Lamborn led a letter with 86 of his Republican Colleagues to House Appropriations Chairwoman DeLauro and Speaker Pelosi laying out their concerns with any elimination of the Hyde amendment. The letter states that Republicans are willing to use every legislative tool to block the Democrat’s efforts and protect the lives of the unborn.
Congressman Lamborn issued the following statement:

For 44 years the Hyde Amendment has had broad bipartisan support. Now, Democrats are trying to use their power to force a radical abortion agenda on all Americans. The Hyde Amendment has saved nearly 2.5 million lives since its first inclusion. We must ensure it remains in effect to protect innocent lives. My colleagues and I are dedicated to using every tool in the legislative arsenal to block their efforts. I am grateful for the support of 86 of my Republican colleagues. I will always work to protect the lives of our most vulnerable.”

Congressman Lamborn’s letter received the support of the Susan B. Anthony List and the Family Research Council. Read the full letter here
