Help Stop "Abortion Care"

The fight to remove the abortion mandate from the health care bill is becoming more intense by the hour. Pro-life Democrat Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) is making headlines with his announcement that 40 Democrats are prepared to block health care reform legislation from coming to the House Floor unless its abortion mandate is removed.

AUL Action is working against time to support the efforts of Stupak and other pro-lifers on the Hill, meeting with Congressmen to ensure they know what’s at stake if the health care reform bill is not amended to protect life.

Even as House members express determination to remove abortion from the House bill, in meetings AUL has learned that Speaker Pelosi and the Democratic leadership are working hard to convince pro-life members of Congress that the Capps Amendment “compromise” prevents abortion funding and coverage.

Please, call your Congressman and tell him/her that the Capps Amendment is not a compromise. The Stupak/Pitts language must be included in the House bill.

The word must get out: health care reform is simply unacceptable unless the final bill contains an explicit provision barring abortion funding and coverage.

Please visit the Team Life Action Center to find out how you can make a difference in your community! When you sign up to join Team Life, AUL will work with you, providing resources to help you educate your friends and family about how to stop your tax dollars from paying for abortion in health care reform.

The online ad "Don't Be Fooled: Abortion is in Health Care Reform” shows how abortion advocates are trying to use health care reform as a means of forcing Americans to pay for the destruction of unborn life. Please watch it on and send it to your friends, your family—everyone you know who doesn’t want to see their tax dollars fund abortion-on-demand.

This health care reform debate is a critical time in the history of the pro-life movement, as the fates of millions of unborn lives hang in the balance.

Thank you for your support as we work together to protect and defend life!
