Silent FOCA is coming

Prolifers breathed a sigh of relief when Obama did not introduce the Freedom of Choice Act in his first official act in office. But we must NOT trust the denials of Obama, NARAL etc when they promise that our tax dollars will not be used to pay for abortions in their Health Care Legislation. But the Population Research Council warns that this is not true:

"Pro-lifers are calling Obama’s new health care plan the “Silent FOCA”. Obama is aggressively pushing this plan, looking to sign it before Congress' summer recess if possible.
Entitled “America's Affordable Health Choices Act,” (H.R. 3200), the plan represents one of the clearest and most decisive attacks against the pro-life cause in this country since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973.

The bill poses numerous threats to the pro-life cause:
Abortion, which Obama has called “essential health care,” would be included in the minimum benefits of every health care plan.

Every taxpayer and insurance holder would have no choice but to pay for every abortion

Discriminates against practitioners who refuse to perform abortions, who may face unemployment as a result.

Will most likely lead to rationing of care for the elderly, whose treatment may not be considered cost-effective.

Under the plan, the elderly will receive an “advance care planning consultation” from the government to “help” them determine their end-of-life care.

Will put nearly all existing insurance providers out of business overnight, making Obama insurance the only insurance available.

We strongly urge all of our readers to contact their Senators and Representatives and demand that they vote against this legislation. You can find your senator
here, and your representative here.

Nancy Pelosi has bragged that she has enough votes to pass the bill.

Today, Thursday July 23, at 7PM there will be a historic prolife action webcast where leaders of all major prolife organizations will address this issue, including; David Bereit, Dr James Dobson, Dr Charmaine Yoest, Tony Perkins, Fr Frank Pavone, Majorie Dannenfelser, Rep Chris Smith, Rep Joe Pitt, Carmen Pate, Wendy Wright, and Jim Sedlak.

Just go to Stop the Abortion Mandate and help prevent a tragedy in our times.

Tell your Congressman you don't want abortion included in our healthcare. In fact you like your healthcare the way it is; private and in your and your doctor's hands, without Obama's friends deciding who should be treated and who should be counseled to die for the greater good.

Health care bill on hold at least until after the August recess.
