Act now. Lives hang in the balance.
We’re really getting down to crunch-time with the health care reform bill. The House is expected to take a vote on it as early as tomorrow. Nancy Pelosi has decided to keep members of the House there until a vote is reached, and abortion is the hurdle preventing this. Pro-abortion leaders, along with the abortion industry, are fighting hard to keep abortion-on-demand in the health care bill. It’s Planned Parenthood’s number one priority. This means you and I will be paying for a skyrocketing number of abortions if this passes.
And don’t let your elected official be fooled by the so-called compromise Ellsworth amendment. It’s so poorly written that even Rep. Louis Slaughter, D-NY, co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Choice Caucus, said, “None of us really objected to the Ellsworth language. In fact, we think he did a good job.” Abortion will still be funded!
Ask them to support the Stupak amendment which would make sure abortion isn’t included.
We desperately need you to contact your congressperson. Please do it today. Phone calls are great. Emails would be okay too. But whatever you do, please do it right away.

Life Issues Institute is a member of Stop the Abortion Mandate, a coalition of pro-life organizations working to keep abortion and rationing out of health care. Here’s a new ad that the group produced. Please share it widely: www.youtube.com/watch?v=9iPym0GvYEg
I can’t overstress the importance of acting now. So many lives hang in the balance. And please pray for our pro-life members of the House of Representatives. They will be under incredible pressure to cave into the abortion industry in the hours ahead.
Sincerely for the babies,
