The Hyde Amendment does not allow for taxpayer funding to be used for abortion (except in cases of rape and incest), and the Weldon Amendment protects the conscience rights of health care practitioners and institutions who object to abortion.
We, the Catholic bishops of Colorado, urge Congressional Representatives to support the Hyde Amendment and the Walden Amendment. We also ask the Faithful to sign The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) petition to lawmakers encouraging them to preserve the Hyde Amendment, which can be accessed at: www.NoTaxpayerAbortion.com, and to contact their Congressmen and women to support the Hyde and Walden amendments. To read the full letter in English, click here.
