URGENT ACTION ALERT!

Dear Friends,

I was one of 36 thousand pro-lifers last evening who tuned into a live webcast sponsored by a dozen or so pro-life organizations highlighting a MAJOR flaw in the Obama-backed Health Care bill racing through Congress.  In light of what I learned, I want to summarize for you a few urgent points.  I will do it as concisely as possible.

1.    Abortion is presently not mentioned in the bill.

2.    The bill does not specify what will and will not be covered.

3.    The bill mandates that a Health Care Advisory Committee has the authority to define the “essential benefits of coverage” (i.e., what will and will not be covered)

4.    The Health Advisory Committee will be a team of unelected bureaucrats appointed by the Obama Administration, most likely by Kathleen Sebelius, Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services.

5.    President Obama during his campaign stated clearly and forcefully that he believed “reproductive care” is a form of “essential” and “basic” health care and assured that it would be included in his health care plan.

6.    As Governor of Kansas, Kathleen Sebelius vetoed every piece of pro-life legislation that crossed her desk.  She is an uncompromising defender of abortion rights.

7.    Obama and Sebelius will be CERTAIN to appoint an advisory committee that supports abortion coverage in universal health care.  Therefore,

8.    FEDERALLY FUNDED ABORTION WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY BECOME A MANDATED FORM OF “ESSENTIAL HEALTH CARE” IF THE BILL PASSES IN ITS PRESENT FORM. 

9.    Every tax payer will be forced to fund abortions.

10.    Presently enacted restrictions on abortion at the State level will be overridden.

11.    Hospitals and providers will be coerced into cooperating with abortions.

12.    FOCA won’t need to be passed because its cornerstones will be included in our nationalized health care.

 
What to do?
 
We need to insist that
ABORTION SERVICES ARE EXPLICITLY EXCLUDED
from the health care bill.

If they are not explicitly excluded, they will become federally mandated.

 

    Get this urgent message to your Representative and two Senators:

–    Email them and write them letters
–    Call their Washington and local offices
–    Write a letter to the Editor of your local newspaper
–    Meet with and attend Town Meetings of your Reps. and Senators while they are home for their summer break in August.
–    Spread the word!!!  Time is of the essence
–    Hold your elected officials accountable!

Finally, pray that U.S. healthcare is governed by Caritas in Veritate.
