Needed health care reform

Abortion is not health care because taking the life of an unborn infant is not healing.

For over 30 years, the Hyde Amendment and other longstanding and widely supported laws have prevented federal funding of elective abortions. Yet health care reform bills advancing through Congress violate this policy.

An elective abortion is like elective cosmetic surgery such as a “face lift” or “tummy tuck” – it’s not a life-protecting and medically necessary procedure. As taxpayers, we shouldn’t have to pay for someone’s elective cosmetic surgery and we shouldn’t have to pay for someone’s elective abortion.

The current health care reforms bills would force Americans to subsidize abortions through their taxes and health insurance premiums.

We need genuine health care reform that saves lives, not destroy them.

Tell your Congressional representative and senators to remove abortion funding and mandates from needed health care reform.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
