The U.S. House passed a massive $2 trillion spending bill Friday that will force taxpayers to pay for the killing of unborn babies in abortions.

Republican leaders temporarily delayed a vote on the legislation Thursday, but Democrats, who control the House, pushed forward Friday morning, passing the bill in a 220-213 vote, the BBC reports. . . .

Nicknamed the “Build Back Better” Act, a project of President Joe Biden, the bill would force taxpayers to pay for abortions, including elective late-term abortions, Republican leaders warned.

According to the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, the legislation even would fund abortions with taxpayer dollars in pro-life states that have opted out of abortion funding in the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare. . . .

The Hyde Amendment prohibits taxpayer funding for abortions in Medicaid and other federal programs, and the Helms Amendment prohibits taxpayer funding for abortions in other countries. The Hyde Amendment alone has been credited with saving about 2.5 million babies’ lives. . . .

During a press conference Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi confirmed that the $2 trillion bill will force taxpayers to fund abortions. When a reporter asked Pelosi if the Hyde Amendment is in the bill, she replied: “It’s not in the bill. It’s not in the bill.”

For decades, most Republican and Democrat lawmakers supported the Hyde Amendment as a regular part of the budget and other spending bills. However, Democrats recently abandoned the public on the issue and sided with the billion-dollar abortion industry in calling for forced taxpayer-funded abortions.

Pro-life leaders now are urging the U.S. Senate to restore amendments to the bill to protect American taxpayers and unborn babies.

The Senate is evenly divided along party lines, and one Democrat, U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, of West Virginia, has said he will not support any bill that forces taxpayers to pay for abortions. . . .

On Thursday, House Republican leader Kevin McCarthy slammed the bill for forcing taxpayers to fund abortions in a record-long speech that delayed a vote on the bill. . . .

The Democrats’ bill mandates abortion coverage in the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, and it allows taxpayer funding for abortions under multiple spending projects, including $30 billion for states to create reinsurance programs for health insurance issuers and $10 billion in public health funding grants. . . .

Since 1976, the Hyde Amendment has saved an estimated 2.5 million babies’ lives, including about 60,000 each year, according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute. Prior to the amendment, in the 1970s, Americans paid for about 300,000 unborn babies’ abortion deaths each year, according to a report from the Family Research Council.

Polls consistently show strong public support for the Hyde Amendment. In January, a Marist poll found 58 percent of Americans oppose using tax dollars to fund abortions in the U.S. Additionally, 77 percent oppose using tax dollars to fund abortions in other countries.  . . .

Dear Heavenly Father, I sincerely and earnestly pray that this bill will Not pass the Senate.

Oh Father, You are the creator of all life! I plead with You today, Father, to restore courage to YOUR People to retake our land from the curse that has come as WE YOUR PEOPLE allowed the murder of our most vulnerable citizens, our preborn children! Strengthen us, Lord, to contend with the spirits of selfishness and convenience, and the lies about “overpopulation” that have allowed us to justify the murders of millions of precious children over the years. Lord, I lift up the U,S, Supreme Court as they consider this case, and ask that the decision of Roe v Wade be rescinded, in answer to our prayers. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
