Between 1973 and 1980, tax dollars paid for an estimated 300,000 abortions each year through Medicaid.* That stopped in 1980 when the Hyde Amendment took effect. It is required to pass every year, and the amendment has stopped organizations like Planned Parenthood from receiving direct Medicaid payment for abortion.

In 2016, the Democrat Party Platform was changed to explicitly demand repeal of the Hyde Amendment. To counter that action, the House of Representatives attempted to make the Hyde Amendment permanent. In January 2017, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Full Disclosure Act passed in the House but failed in the Senate.

In 2016, the Democrat Party Platform was changed to explicitly demand repeal of the Hyde Amendment. To counter that action, the House of Representatives attempted to make the Hyde Amendment permanent. In January 2017, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Full Disclosure Act passed in the House but failed in the Senate. In June 2019, Joe Biden announced his opposition to the Hyde Amendment. Later that month, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “I wish we never had a Hyde Amendment… I don’t see that there’s an opportunity to get rid of it with the current occupant of the White House and this U.S. Senate.”**

The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Full Disclosure Act of 2023 has been introduced in the current 118th Congress (2023-2024) in both the House (H.R. 7) and the Senate (S. 62). If passed, it will effectively end taxpayer funding for abortion in federal programs, prohibit federal funds for health coverage that includes abortions, and essentially make the Hyde Amendment permanent. However, the powerful push to repeal the Hyde Amendment continues with President Joe Biden and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) serving as the Majority Leader in the Senate. If the Hyde Amendment is repealed—as Medicaid expands state-to-state—there will be a huge surge in taxpayer funding for abortion and the organizations that perform abortions will reap a financial windfall.
