WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) today released the following statement in support of The Protect Life Act, H.R. 358, to enact protections against taxpayer subsidies for abortion and provide conscience protections for health care entities.

“As a nation, we are dedicated to improving, preserving and celebrating life. At a time when American families are facing enormous economic challenges, this bill ensures that their hard-earned dollars are not used to fund abortion coverage. It also implements conscience protections for health care providers and institutions that choose not to perform abortions. Both of these are policies which are supported by an overwhelming majority of Americans. This bill demonstrates once again that our Republican Majority will always stand on the side of life.”
