“Help stop the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade…”
Listen to the recording of the URGENT nationwide webcast to prevent Washington D.C. bureaucrats and abortion industry lobbyists from using GOVERNMENT FUNDS to pay for abortions and bailout the failing abortion industry!
Despite the fact that most Americans do NOT want our government to pay for abortion with their money, the Senate caved in to pressure from Planned Parenthood and abortion industry lobbyists.
The Senate health care bill — if passed into law — will result in a MASSIVE government-funded bailout of the abortion industry — and the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade!
To respond swiftly to this crisis, the 70+ pro-life and pro-family organizations that make up the Stop the Abortion Mandate Coalition joined together on Tuesday, December 15, for a huge nationwide webcast, featuring a panel of expert presenters:

The Stupak-Pitts Amendment (see the actual language here) which passed in U.S. House of Representatives verison of health care reform ensures that government money will not be used to fund abortions. The Stupak Amendment clearly maintains the current status quo keeping in line with the already in-place Hyde Amendment. However, some are falsely saying that that the Stupak Amendment goes beyond Hyde. Check out our chart below which compares Stupak to Hyde and read this op-ed by the Con. Bart Stupak on what exactly his amendment does.
