From the Family Research Council:
Abortion should not be considered health care!
October 06, 2009 | Share with Friends
As the House and Senate leadership continue political maneuvering to advance a national health care bill, one thing is abundantly clear … the majority of Americans do not want their tax dollars used to fund abortion.
President Obama, Senate Majority Leader Reid and Speaker of the House Pelosi have repeatedly stated that abortion will not be included in the health care legislation currently being considered in Congress. However, in both the House and Senate, several important pro-life amendments that would have prevented the federal funding and coverage of abortion as well as protected the conscience rights of health care providers who refuse to participate in abortion were defeated. The message is clear; if abortion is not explicity excluded in the legislation, it will be included.
Please sign our petition letting Congressional leaders and the White House know that you insist that your tax dollars not be used to cover abortion and that health care legislation must explicitly exclude abortion coverage. The petitions will be delivered to Senate Majority Leader Reid, Speaker of the House Pelosi and the White House on Friday, October 16. If you have already joined thousands of others in signing the petition, please forward this to a friend.
