President Supports Federal Funding for Abortion Expenses

Assistance would help pay for procedures, time off, and child care. 

President Biden recently said he would support a federal fund to help women pay for abortion procedures. He stated he not only supports providing resources for those who need to take time off from work or to obtain child care to get an abortion but also calls on companies to help their employees pay for “reproductive care.“

The president’s comments reaffirm his current stand against the Hyde amendment, which prohibits federal funds from being used to pay for abortions except in cases of rape, incest, or when the life of the mother is endangered. In August, President Biden signed an executive order authorizing the Department of Health and Human Services to collaborate with states regarding Medicaid waivers to cover the costs of those seeking abortions across state lines.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the president and his Cabinet to have their hearts touched by God regarding the sanctity of life.
  • For U.S. officials at every level of government as they assess the quality of health care.
  • For Americans to turn toward the Lord and recognize the rights of the unborn.
