Congressman Jim Bridenstine Votes to Block Rule Requiring States to Grant Funds to Abortion Providers

Today, Congressman Jim Bridenstine voted to block an Obama Administration regulation which opened a backdoor to funding abortion with taxpayer funds.

Congressman Bridenstine’s statement on passage of H. J. Res. 43 in the U.S. House:

“Congress is moving to block numerous regulations finalized late in Mr. Obama’s presidency.  This particular ‘Midnight Rule’ was designed to support the abortion industry.  If enacted, this rule would have prohibited states from denying Federal grants to abortion providers.  I’m proud that the House acted to start the process of repealing this rule.”
