The nation’s leading pro-abortion organizations, Planned Parenthood and Pro-Choice NARAL, are calling on their members to contact their U.S. Senators to urge them to include “reproductive health care” in health care reform legislation. Notice how crafty they think they are by not using the “a” word — abortion. As if the Senators and the rest of the world can be deceived.
“We’ve feared all along that women and their reproductive health care could be the first to go when push comes to shove in health care reform,” sobs Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood. Pouring it on, NARAL’s Nancy Keenan adds “Unless we act now, the Senate could ban reproductive-health services from being covered in the new health-care system. Millions of women could lose coverage for abortion.”
They are reacting to our attempts to specifically exclude abortion coverage in any health care reform mandates. It is our job to respond in kind and exceed their efforts to force us to pay for everyone’s abortions.
Everyone reading this blog needs to contact Senators Kohl and Feingold at 202-224-3121 and urge that an abortion exclusion provision be added to any health care measure that comes before the Senate.
