URGENT ALERT - FEBRUARY 19, 2010:
PRESIDENT OBAMA PLANNING TO PROPOSE OWN HEALTHCARE BILL, NO MENTION OF ABORTION EXCLUSION
The Congressional Quarterly in Washington, D.C. is now reporting that the final health care proposal is expected to be released by the White House “as early as Feb 21″ — this weekend!
Abortion proponents are aggressively assembling a coalition to ram through a health care bill that is fully expected to mandate abortion coverage and government funding of abortion.
With a final version expected out as early as Sunday, it’s clear that abortion advocates know they’re on the verge of having the votes they need to force this bill through in a way that is filibuster-proof:
”The most likely way forward is for the House to clear the Senate’s health care bill (HR 3590) and for the Senate to pass a package of changes to it, using the filibuster-proof budget reconciliation process. That set of changes would incorporate the deals struck with the House, which would then send the new package to the White House. Obama would first sign the original Senate bill, then the ‘corrections’ package. The last measure signed into law would be the one that dictates the final shape of the overhaul.”
You see, the House passed the Stupak language that would save lives and protect taxpayers from funding abortion — but it was completely stripped from the Senate version.
With intense pressure mounting for the House to just roll over and pass the Senate version, millions of lives are at stake!
President Obama has refused to address the issue of abortion — and every indication is that he will keep abortion funding as a centerpiece of his proposal.
And with the immense amount of pressure that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have been applying to pro-life members of their party, we must act NOW!
We’ve been working around the clock to put together a coalition of like-minded groups, leaders, and activists to press for Stupak language — that protects innocent human life in the final bill.
Now we need YOU to tell that to Congress!
*** ACTION ITEM ***
Please contact your members of Congress to tell them:
“Do not support any health care reform bill that does not include the Stupak language to block government funding of abortion!”
