Message from the Supreme Knight

Dear brother Knight,

Your action is needed to end taxpayer funded abortions!

On Tuesday, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote to permanently ban all taxpayer funding of abortion. We urge you to contact your member of Congress to express your support for this important legislation.

In 1976, our brother Knight Congressman Henry Hyde introduced a provision which prohibits any funds from Medicaid being used to pay for abortions. In the last 40 years, the Hyde Amendment has been renewed annually and has saved more than two million lives!

The important legislation that needs your support will make the Hyde Amendment permanent and will apply it across the federal government, not just to Medicaid. This will save even more innocent lives!

At our 134th Supreme Convention, we resolved “to speak out to our elected representatives about the need to enact legislation protecting human life.” I urge you to take that action today by contacting your member of Congress and telling them to vote YES on H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.
