This is an urgent alert.
As you know, a lot of energy was expended to stop the “Freedom of Choice Act” (FOCA) from being introduced.
And it wasn’t introduced. But we warned that its provisions of expanding abortion and forcing us to pay for it would be snuck in under another bill.
Well now it’s here, and we have to act quickly to stop it.
The health care reform bills now being finalized in Congress are going to end up mandating the federal funding of abortion.
Unless Congress explicitly excludes abortion. And that’s what I’m asking you to urge them to do.
Please take these three steps today:
a) Click here http://www.capwiz.com/nrlc/issues/alert/?alertid=13157881&type=CO and read more about this and then fill out the form at the bottom to send a message to your representatives in Congress.
b) Call the offices of your Representative and two Senators at 202-224-3121 and tell them that you want abortion to be explicitly excluded in any health care reform bill.
c) Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to tell us that you have done this so that when we speak to members of Congress in the coming days, we can tell them how many of our people have made this request.
Friends, if we don’t do this, we will end up with a health care reform bill that will expand abortion more radically than anything since Roe vs. Wade, and we will find ourselves under a law requiring abortion funding. The other side wants to sneak this in and wants to do so in the next few weeks.
Let’s stop them today.
God bless you!
