The Senate is poised to consider the health care reform bill and now is the moment to let our members know that we expect life and liberty of conscience to be respected in any health care reform legislation. The Senate may introduce a bill this week and consider it before the July 4th recess.
Please contact your Senators now to urge them to extend the protections of the Hyde Amendment to every relevant provision of the bill andremind them that abortion should not be part of any health care reform legislation. Now is also our opportunity to remind our legislators to protect the conscience rights of those who do not wish to participate in, provide or pay for abortion.
Thereis significant pressure being put on members of the Senate to compromise on protections that must be included in the health care law. Please encourage your Senators! Make sure they understand we want and demand health care without abortion funding and with conscience protection.
Thank you for taking action in defense of life and liberty of conscience.
