Pro-Abortion Bill Advances to the Senate Floor

Dear John,


Thank you for all that you have done to oppose Harry Reid's health care reform proposal that includes massive federal funding of abortion.

Unfortunately, tonight, the Senate voted 60-39 to allow Harry Reid's health care bill to proceed on to the floor of the Senate.

Clearly, this is going to be a long, hard battle. Everything you have been doing has helped to ratchet up the pressure on your Senators.

You can be sure that the Susan B. Anthony List will be educating constituents in the states of Senators who voted to allow this terrible bill to move forward.

Go here to see how your Senators voted.

Tonight's vote was the Senate's first opportunity to defend Life. Their last chance will be on the final cloture vote to end debate. A vote to close debate without the addition of strong pro-life language will be a vote for government funded abortion. This will be the ultimate betrayal to pro-life constituents like you and me.

In the coming weeks, I will be calling on all pro-life activists to make their voices heard. This will be a defining moment for the future of unborn children, women, and the pro-life movement.  We simply must stop this deadly legislation.  

Working together, we will fight to save countless lives by stopping the biggest expansion of abortion since 
Roe v. Wade.

Thank you for your continued efforts on behalf of women and innocent unborn babies.

For Life,

Marjorie Dannenfelser
President, Susan B. Anthony List
