Obama Pro-Abortion Health Care Reconciliation Bill Expected Monday, Then Summit

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Democrats in Washington are continuing to push for the controversial reconciliation strategy to railroad the pro-abortion government-run health care bill through Congress. And Republicans continue blasting the upcoming health care summit as a charade and "infomercial" for the bill.

Meanwhile, President Barack Obama is reportedly writing a revised health care bill that can be attached to a budget bill and receive approval in the Senate on a majority vote.

The idea behind the Obama bill, or a corrections measure that allows the House to adopt the pro-abortion Senate bill, is to rely on the reconciliation process to get around the Republican filibuster and make it so only 51 votes are needed to approve the bill.

As LifeNews.com reported, Obama officials said the bill may be ready by the weekend and now they have updated their prediction by saying it will be posted on the Internet on Monday morning.

"It will be a reconciliation bill," the new York Times quoted a top Democratic staffer as saying. "If Republicans don't come with any substantial offers, this is what we would do."

One Capitol Hill Democrat told the Times abortion remains "a wild card," but pro-life advocates would be surprised if the Obama bill contained the Stupak amendment that appears in the House bill and bans abortion funding. The Senate measure contains massive abortion funding and other pro-abortion problems.

Democrats are relying on a strategy to build public support for the pro-abortion health care bill by putting together a White House health care summit, but Republicans aren't taking the bait and saying the event is for show. Full story.

Take action! Learn more then contact your U.S. Representative and Senators to tell them you OPPOSE this bill and any bill that does not explicitly exclude abortion funding here: http://stoptheabortionmandate.com/
