Knights of Columbus believe in the dignity and worth of every human life and support efforts that protect the unborn. We’re extremely disappointed by recent actions to take away longstanding bipartisan taxpayer and conscience protections including the Hyde Amendment. This year’s Knights of Columbus/Marist polling, affirming over a decade of previous polling data, shows that 58% of Americans oppose the use of taxpayer-funding for abortions. Eliminating Hyde is an extreme measure, is not what most Americans want and is out of step with our democracy. We urge Congress to preserve provisions like the bipartisan Hyde Amendment that ban the use of taxpayer funding for abortions and affirm the desire of the American public.
The Knights remain committed to helping pregnant mothers choose life, such as through donating ultrasound machines, other valuable material resources, and volunteer hours to pregnancy resource centers around the world.
