ObamaCare is the biggest expansion of abortion in the United States since Roe v. Wade. It has the potential of funneling hundreds of millions of dollars into abortion businesses – using our tax dollars.
am pleased to report that there is a new effort in Congress to strip most of the abortion funding provisions out of ObamaCare. A bipartisan group in Congress, led by Congressmen Joe Pitts and Dan Lipinski, has introduced the Protect Life Act, H.R. 358. The bill is clear and unambiguous; it makes it illegal for taxpayer dollars to fund abortion or abortion insurance coverage.
This critical piece of pro-life legislation is scheduled for a vote in the House of Representatives on Thursday, October 13th. We will once again have an opportunity to see which Members of Congress who claim to be pro-life are truly pro-life.Pro-abortion opponents of this bill claim that ObamaCare doesn’t fund abortion – which just isn’t true. All truly pro-life Members of Congress should support this bill, to ensure once and for all that no taxpayer will be required to subsidize the heinous practice of abortion.
As a matter of fact, in addition to preventing funding for abortions, the Protect Life Act provides conscience protection for health care providers who refuse to participate in abortions, prohibiting them from being discriminated against for their pro-life views.
While we will continue fighting against all of ObamaCare’s unconstitutional provisions as it makes its way to the Supreme Court, it is important that we cut off ObamaCare’s pro-abortion provisions immediately.
The ACLJ strongly supports the Protect Life Act and we encourage you to contact your Member of Congress to let them know that you support this critical pro-life legislation.
