Press Release

Washington D.C-- Congressman Gibbs released the following statement after H.R. 7 - No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2015 passed the House:

Forty-two years after Roe v. Wade, the ‘March for Life’ continues. As thousands protest abortion in our nation’s capital today, my colleagues and I voted to ensure taxpayer dollars will not fund abortions.

“This is about protecting human life. Taxpayers should not be forced to pay for abortions. H.R.7 prohibits premium tax credits and cost-sharing subsidies under Obamacare from being used to purchase health care plans that cover abortions with the exception of rape, incest or preserving the life of the mother. Today, the House spoke for those who do not have a voice and supported the right to life.”

Below is the list of Pro-life bills that Congressman Gibbs has signed onto for the 114th Congress:

 Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act (Rep. Black R-TN) – will ensure Title X family planning grants are not used to provide abortions.

 Healthcare Conscience Rights Act (Rep. Black R-TN) – protects religious and moral freedoms by giving individuals the choice to not purchase a healthcare plan under Obamacare that covers abortion.

 Ultrasound Informed Consent Act (Rep. Duncan R-SC) – ensures women will receive an ultrasound before consenting to an abortion.

 Every Child is a Blessing Act (Rep. Palazzo R-MS) – protects disabled children by preventing discriminatory lawsuits and judicial proceedings and holds healthcare providers accountable to state laws.
