Another victory came for the Pro-Life movement today, when the House passed the No Taxpayer Funding For Abortion Act.
The bill does exactly as it says—bans taxpayer funds from being used for abortions.
This vote comes just three days before the Annual March For Life, a Pro-Life event that takes place on the anniversary of Roe V. Wade each year.

The legislation, written by Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), would also permanently prohibit the District of Columbia from using its local funds approved by Congress for abortion services.
“That’s what we should be all about. Life affirming and the saving of human life,” said Smith.
Earlier this week, President Trump signed an Executive Order reinstating the Mexico City Abortion Law.
There are annually-scheduled bills set to come to a vote in the House this week, and are scheduled to fall around the same time as the March for Life. In the past, Democrats have filibustered these bills.
