Why the Hyde Amendment Matters

The editors have written a very good editorial about the need to preserve the Hyde Amendment. This year's Democratic Party's platform comes out in opposition to it. The ever-flexible Hillary Clinton once supported it and now she too opposes it. Food for moral reflection and letter writing as we approach November 8.

Margaret O'Brien Steinfels, a former editor of Commonweal, writes frequently in these pages.
