Stupak Condemns Amendment

I personally hope that the Health Care Bill as it stands does not pass, because even with a good Pro-Life amendment that prevents tax payer funded abortions, it has so much else that is wrong with it that would be very bad for America. But if it is inevitable that the bill pass, then AT LEAST let it include an amendment that clearly and absolutely prevents tax payer funding of abortion, and this is what I prefer to tell our Senators.

The Stupak-Pitts Amendment is the only one that prevents tax payer funded abortions. Therefore, please see this important message and take a few moments to follow the link and sign the letter to your Senators. The following letter is from Marjorie Dannenfelser, President, Susan B. Anthony List. She said:

The Senate approved an end to the debate on the Manager's Amendment that finalizes abortion funding in the Senate Health Care Reform Bill. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) praised the Senate bill, describing it as having "abortion language that is completely different from the House -- thank God."

One thing is clear to me. Nancy Pelosi sees the chance to replace the pro-life Stupak-Pitts Amendment in the House with the pro-abortion Manager's Amendment.

Tell your Senators and Representative to oppose any bill that includes this pro-abortion Manager's Amendment:

Bart Stupak (D-MI) called the Manager's Amendment "unacceptable" and said, "We are going to hold firm and make sure that the Stupak-Pitts language stays when this amendment is brought back to us. We will not vote for the bill if that language is not there."

If Nancy Pelosi strips the Stupak Amendment out of the House Health Care Reform Bill and dares Bart Stupak to defeat the bill on the final vote, we need him to know that we have been with him every step of the way.

Go here to tell your elected Members of Congress that anything less than the Stupak-Pitts Amendment is unacceptable:

For Life,
Marjorie Dannenfelser
President, Susan B. Anthony List
