Later this week the House will consider a bill that will allow your tax dollars to pay for abortions in the District of Columbia. D.C’s 37% abortion rate is already one of the highest in the country, particularly among the African-American and the poor populations; you know, the populations that Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg told the New York Times Americans “don’t want too many of.”
The Susan B. Anthony List has been on the front lines trying to keep your hard-earned tax dollars from paying for the murder of the unborn here in our nation’s capital. In addition to mobilizing thousands of activists, like you, to contact their representatives, we have worked closely with the House Pro-Life Women’s Caucus to build opposition on the floor of the House and in the media.
Next President Obama and his pro-abortion friends in Congress are pushing for massive "health care reform" bills that would vastly expand access to abortion on-demand, override state abortion laws, and establish federal funding of abortion.
Forcing the American people to pay for abortion on-demand is not health care!
Yet leading pro-abortion advocates seem to think it is. Just take a look at what some of the pro-abortion leaders have to say about health care and abortion:
“[I]n my mind reproductive care is essential care, basic care so it is at the center, the heart of the plan that I propose…insurers are going to have to abide by the same rules in terms of providing comprehensive care, including reproductive care…that’s going to be absolutely vital.”
-President Barack Obama
“Reproductive health includes access to abortion…We are now an Administration that will protect the rights of women, including their rights to reproductive health care.”
-Secretary Hillary Clinton
“Let there be no mistake, basic healthcare includes abortion services…we must act now to make sure women get a fair shake in the final healthcare reform bill."
-Rev. Carlton Veazey, Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice
If these attempts at “health care” reform pass, taxpayers like you and me will be paying for almost every one of the hundreds of thousands abortions performed every year.
We must not allow any health care reform efforts to be hijacked by the pro-abortion agenda.
Please forward this message to as many friends and family and urge them to act now to protect the unborn boys and girls and the consciences of millions of pro-life Americans who don’t want to see their tax dollars used to pay for abortions.
