EDIT: It passed. ☹
Remember the old phrase, When it rains, it pours?
Well, in the midst of this huge health care battle, Congress is attempting to sneak abortion funding into the District of Columbia through the 2010federal budget appropriations bill, an action that we know will lead to the loss of an additional 1,000 innocent unborn boys and girls every year.
We fought to shut down this bill all summer and now, with pro-lifers heavily engaged in the fight over the health care bill, Nancy Pelosi and are trying to sneak this legislation in right before the end of the year.
Pro-abortion leaders hope to break the longstanding policy of preventing federal funding of abortions without anyone noticing. The policies that the federal government adopts in our nation's capital often foreshadow policies they intend to adopt across the nation. I have news for Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid: we did not fight against this legislation all summer just to give up when unborn babies and their mothers need us the most.
Already, half of all pregnancies in the District of Columbia end in abortion. According to recent estimates, this legislation will result in 1,000 more abortions every year -- funded by you and me.
P.S. As 2009 comes to an end, many pro-abortion politicians are attempting to rush through unpopular legislation. Any contribution that you can afford will be put to use shutting down these pro-abortion legislative initiatives.
