Marjorie Dannenfelser, head of the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List, said last week that anti-choice activists should take into “serious consideration” refusing to pay taxes if the Hyde Amendment, which bars federal funds from going to most abortion services, is repealed.
Dannenfelser told the Media Research Center after a speech at the National Press Club on Wednesday that a tax protest would be “something to think about” if the Hyde Amendment were repealed, as proposed in a draft of the Democratic platform.
“If it were repealed, how should pro-lifers react?” MRC’s Katie Yoder asked Dannenfelser. “Should they go so far as to refuse to pay taxes?”
“That would be a serious consideration,” Dannenfelser responded. “That would be a serious consideration. When you’re made complicit in the killing of another person, you have to weigh the consequences of all your actions, so it would be something to think about.”
