Action Alert: Urge U.S. House to reject pro-abortion State Department bill

Act now, vote likely Wednesday, June 10

WASHINGTON -- June 8, 2009 -- The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote on or about Wednesday, June 10, 2009, on a pro-abortion foreign relations bill that is opposed by National Right to Life and other pro-life groups.

Please take a few minutes to contact the office of your U.S. representative, urging him or her to oppose the bill, titled the "Foreign Relations Authorization Act" (H.R. 2410). This bill would provide congressional authorization for many activities run by the State Department, which is currently headed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a strong pro-abortion advocate.

Section 334 of the bill would establish an Office for Global Women’s Issues, headed by an official with the rank of ambassador-at-large, who would report directly to Secretary Clinton. This high-ranking official and her new sub-agency would be charged with promoting “women’s empowerment internationally.” For more information and to get the name and phone number of your congressional representative, click here.
