Senator Barbara Boxer and other leftist legislators
are saying that federal agencies do not
fund abortions! This is a smoke and mirrors
tactic right out of the playbook of the
now-defunct 111th Congress. We must counter
this deceitful tactic by supporting a critical
vote in the House expected this week. See my
urgent message below – Mat.
With amazing Leftist double-speak, Senator Barbara Boxer
(D-CA) took the podium at a recent press conference with several other Democrat Senators and declared, "We’re not spending federal funds on abortions."
She contends that subsidizing health insurance
plans that cover abortion services is not "direct"
federal funding of abortion. She implies that
the proposed pro-life initiatives making their
way through the house are partisan twisting of
Well, Liberty Counsel strongly disagrees with you, Senator Boxer. It is you and those who stand with you who are twisting the facts!
Fact: Our tax dollars subsidize Planned
Parenthood, the largest abortion provider
in the nation, operating under the guise
of providing health care.
Fact: There are multiple "loopholes" in ObamaCare
that allow taxpayer dollars to be used to fund
Those abortion loopholes and the unconstitutional mandates contained in ObamaCare are why Liberty Counsel has fought against this so-called healthcare "reform" since its inception.
Sadly, Senator Boxer’s rhetoric is simply designed to keep abortion readily available – and to defuse the momentum of several promising initiatives making their way through the House of Representatives right now.
++Critical ObamaCare "defunding" vote expected this week!
As I wrote to you last Friday, the House of Representatives, under Speaker John Boehner, is advancing several initiatives that will stop taxpayer-funded abortions through ObamaCare – and in any other federal legislation!
The House must consider a "continuing resolution" (CR) bill to fund the federal government from March to September. In that bill are proposed earmarks for the advancement of ObamaCare.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA)
promises there will be no surviving funding
for ObamaCare in the upcoming CR that is
necessary to keep the government funded.
Representative Steve King (R-IA) has also
prepared language to defund healthcare "reform"
which he plans to have added to the CR bill.
Representative Denny Rehberg (R-MT), the Chairman
of the Labor, Health, and Human Services
Subcommittee which controls the purse strings
for ObamaCare, has declared his intention to
defund the bill.
Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA)
has introduced a bill preventing the IRS from
hiring the extra agents needed to enforce the
individual mandate in ObamaCare. As you
doubtless know, the IRS is slated to become
the ObamaCare enforcement agency.
THE VOTE ON THE "CONTINUING RESOLUTION" BILL AND ITS DEFUNDING AMENDMENT IS EXPECTED THIS WEEK!
++Defund ObamaCare. Defend Life!

But that’s not all! Two additional pro-life initiatives will soon have hearings in the House of Representatives…
The "Protect Life Act," H.R. 358, introduced
by Congressman Joe Pitts (R-PA), would
prohibit any component of the ObamaCare bill
from being used to subsidize or mandate
abortion coverage. It would also prevent
funding from being withheld from institutions
that refuse to provide abortions.
Rep. Christopher Smith’s H.R. 3, the "No
Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act," prohibits
federal funds from being used for any health
benefits coverage that includes coverage for
These new pro-life measures are the most promising that we’ve seen proposed in Congress since the dark day that ObamaCare was passed into law. Best of all, they all have a good chance of passing!
We MUST stand behind these pro-life legislators
and their potentially historic pieces of legislation!

Eliminating ObamaCare was among the highest citizen
mandates issued in the 2010 midterm elections. The
repeal initiative narrowly fell short in the Senate
after an overwhelming victory in the House. NOW it’s
time to DEFUND this healthcare disaster!
ObamaCare is immoral, unconstitutional, and
WRONG for America! The RIGHT thing to do
is defund it…NOW!
As pro-life Americans, we must stand AGAINST the anti-life
provisions in the ObamaCare law and stand FOR the
tremendous pro-life initiatives that will soon come
to a vote. Go here to take a stand and order your faxes:
Thank you in advance for supporting this vital effort
to defund ObamaCare and defend life!
God bless you,

P.S. I URGE you to send faxes now and tell our elected
officials to defund the anti-life, anti-family, anti-freedom
healthcare "reform" law – and to defend life! Please,
