Massive Abortion Funding In Senate Health Care Bill - Critical Vote Saturday!
November 20, 2009
For the sake of millions of babies put at risk by this horrendous bill, please call your Senator TODAY!!
Washington, DC - The Senate version of health care "reform" released this week has not only stripped the Stupak-Pitts language banning taxpayer funded abortions, but has actually added language that will insure massive federal funding - against the will of the American people.
A critical first vote on this betrayal of taxpayers is scheduled for Saturday evening at 8:00 PM ET. Senators will need 60 votes to continue the debate on the bill, which would cost 848 billion dollars and force taxpayers foot the bill for abortions.
Polls continue to show that the vast majority of the American people oppose tax-funded abortions, which will lead to an increase in the grisly procedures, will financially bail out a dangerous and failing abortion industry, and put an additional economic burden on our wallets.
For instance, under this bill YOUR hard earned tax dollars would go to line the pockets of quacks like:
It is absolutely imperative that you contact your SenatorsTODAY and tell them that you want them to vote againstfurther health care debate as long as even one cent is earmarked for abortions.
Pregnant Pro-Lifer Attacked By Abortion Worker Outside KC Abortion Clinic
Kansas City, KS - An abortion clinic employee attacked a pregnant pro-life volunteer outside the Central Family Medicine abortion clinic in Kansas City, Kansas, while she was engaged in peaceful, First Amendment activity.
On November 14, 2009, an unidentified abortion clinic employee came out of the Central Family Medicine abortion clinic and began to taunt the pro-lifers. Her verbal abuse escalated into violence as she rammed her shoulder into sidewalk counselor Jennifer McCoy, who is noticeably six months pregnant. A photograph taken by protest leader Mark Gietzen of the Kansas Coalition for Life shows McCoy recoiling and bracing for the hard impact that occurred a split second later.
Police were summoned, but the abortion worker attempted to flee the scene before they could arrive. McCoy followed the woman to keep her from evading the police. After realizing that she could not get away, the worker returned to the abortion clinic where she hid behind locked doors.
Police attempted to enter the clinic to arrest the woman for battery, but they were denied access by another worker who demanded that the police get a search warrant, then lied to them saying that the woman was not there.
McCoy has since been in contact with police, who are pursuing the case. There remains the possibility that the second abortion worker could face criminal charges for impeding a police investigation.
"This is yet another example of abortion workers engaging in violent or criminal acts, then acting as if the laws don't apply to them," said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "We look forward to this woman's impending arrest and conviction with the hope it will serve as a lesson that abortionists and their collaborators are not above the law."
Aside from the drama created by the abortion worker's attack, the pro-lifers were able to persuade two women to abandon their plans for abortion and make decisions to keep their babies during the event. Operation Rescue's Truth Truck was parked nearby and protesters used an overhead banner that read, "Please do not kill your baby. You will regret it for the rest of your life."
