Abortion exception

The U.S. House of Representatives recently voted to double down on the Hyde Amendment by voting to ban any funding to healthcare that also provides abortion coverage. Why does abortion get special treatment?

I have family who hold religious objections to war, but their taxpayer money goes to war. People who hold religious objections to pollution have their tax money going to businesses that destroy the environment. Why is abortion so special?
