The Coalition's President, Michael McMonagle, described the purpose of this planned action, "In the wake of the defeat of the 'Nelson Amendment' to the 'Health Care Reform' (HCR) bill, the only certain way to stop HCR legislation with public funding for abortion in the U.S. Senate is by a filibuster. Thus, the most important pro-life vote in the U.S. Senate on HCR legislation will be the motion for cloture, which would stop a filibuster.
"If Sen. Casey is to be faithful to his stated pro-life beliefs, he must oppose cloture. A summary of our message is, a vote for cloture is a vote for abortion.
"Sen. Casey has refused to meet with any representatives of state pro-life organizations on this issue, either in Pennsylvania or in his D.C. office. So, we are traveling to his D.C. office to pray that he votes in accordance with his stated pro-life beliefs."
