Congressman Smith Introduces "No Abortion Bonds Act"

This week, Missouri Congressman Jason Smith formally introduced the No Abortion Bonds Act, which prohibits the use of federal tax-exempt bonds to finance the construction of abortion clinics.

Congressman Smith's No Abortion Bonds Act will remove the tax-exempt status of any bond that goes to an abortion provider or abortion clinic. Federal tax-exempt bonds cost the federal government billions in lost revenue, meaning they are subsidized by taxpayers.

"Missouri Right to Life supports the No Abortions Bond Act as it will deny 'tax credit bond status' to any bonds used to provide a facility owned by an abortion provider. Our federal tax dollars should not be used to support the killing of unborn children," said Susan Klein, Executive Director of Missouri Right to Life. 

"This bill is another attempt by our pro-life legislators to reduce and eventually eliminate the hundreds of millions of dollars in government funds making its way into the pockets of abortion providers each year. Missouri Right to Life applauds Congressman Jason Smith and all of the Members of Congress who support this bill."
