U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines introduced a bill to prohibit the use of taxpayer dollars to fund abortions for illegal immigrants.
“Rather than getting control of the southern border crisis President Biden created, he wants to ship illegal immigrants across the country to get taxpayer funded abortions. This is a gross abuse of Montanans’ taxpayer dollars and should never be allowed,” said Senator Daines.
Senator Daines cosponsored the legislation with colleagues Senators Roger Marshall (Kan.), Marsha Blackburn (Tenn.), Mike Braun (Ind.), Cindy Hyde-Smith (Miss.), James Inhofe (Okla.), James Lankford (Okla.), Mike Lee (Utah.), Rick Scott (Fla.), and Roger Wicker (Miss.).
The “No Taxpayer Funds for Illegal Alien Abortions Act” would:
- Prohibit any ICE or HHS employee or contractor from transporting any illegal alien across State lines for the purpose of procuring an abortion and;
- Prohibit any funds for ICE or HHS from being used or made available to (1) pay for an abortion, except to save the life of the mother or in case of rape or incest, or (2) require any person to perform or facilitate in any way an abortion.
