Your Voice Needs to be Heard Soon!

The Action Alert that is Part One for Friday’s National Right to Life News Today is a call to pro-lifers who realize their voice makes a difference—and to those who don’t yet realize the power of the grassroots. We are asking you to contact your member of the House of Representatives to urge him or her to support the “Protect Life Act” AND to oppose all attempts to weaken the bill.

You may have noticed that NRLC does not send out random notices. We respect your time and your intelligence and call on you only when necessary.

Here’s a quick summary that you can use when you ask your friends and family to help out.

ObamaCare is rife with “multiple provisions that provide authorizations for subsidies for abortion, both implicit and explicit, and also multiple provisions that opened doors to abortion-expanding administrative actions,” as NRLC explains.

What would the Protect Life Act accomplish? It would apply the pro-life principles of the Hyde Amendment to every component of ObamaCare, and it contains important conscience protections for pro-life health care providers as well.

Pro-abortionists will come back with every strained argument you can imagine (and beyond) and that does not change a simple truth. Americans are opposed to the use of federal funds to pay for or subsidize abortion coverage. And as we wrote about at the time and since, a post-election poll conducted by The Polling Company in November 2010 found 58% were opposed to “using taxpayer dollars to pay for abortion at any time and for any reason.”
