Federation of Organizations Opposes Senate Healthcare Bill that Funds Abortion

Dec 22, 2009

The Freedom Federation announced that the federation of organizations representing over 30 million people opposes any healthcare bill that directly or indirectly funds abortion, including the current Senate bill. The Freedom Federation is comprised of some of the nation’s largest multiracial, multiethnic, and multigenerational faith-based and policy organizations.

Last Saturday, Senate President Harry Reid (D-NV) filed a 383-page so-called “Manager’s Amendment” to his 2,074-page pending bill (H.R. 3590). Amendment 3276 requires that the federal government violate the principles of the Hyde Amendment by funding abortion. The funding follows a complicated bookkeeping scheme similar to the Camps-Waxman accounting scheme which the House rejected when it adopted the Stupak-Pitts amendment on November 7.

Here is what you can do

Pray, pray, and pray that God will intervene in the individual hearts of every single Congressional legislator so that their votes will line up with God’s Word.

Then call your Senators now. The Senate still needs two more votes of 60 (today and tomorrow) in order to reach the final vote on the Senate version of the bill before Christmas Eve.

We need to make it clear that we will not accept ANY bill that funds abortions, rations care, limits our freedom or imposes new taxes and burdens on the American people.
