Washington D.C. - Representative Rick Crawford (AR-1) released the statement below after voting YES on H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, to restrict taxpayer dollars from funding abortions. 

"Arkansans don't want their money to be used for a practice that they find morally abhorrent, and I'm one of those Arkansans. I voted for H.R. 7 today because the federal government shouldn't use public money to pay for an action that a large percentage of the public doesn't support. To do so would be a betrayal of the public trust."
