WASHINGTON, D.C. (24 July 2008) – We need YOU to protect a new proposal that would defund Planned Parenthood, protect medical workers and save countless lives – and we need it TODAY!
The Bush administration is considering a regulation that would not only ensure freedom of conscience for pro-life medical workers, but also recognize abortion as including the birth control pill or any other contraceptive method that results in the death of a human being before or after implantation.
Pro-abortion lawmakers, fueled by an irate Planned Parenthood Federation of America and supported by the pro-abortion mainstream media are on the warpath. They know how important this regulation could be to protect preborn children, so they want to make sure it gets quashed ASAP. Led by Sen. Hillary Clinton, pro-aborts are circulating a letter signed by more than 105 members of Congress pledging their opposition to the regulation and vowing to fight it.
But pro-lifers are fighting back. Reps. Dave Feldon and Lincoln Davis are cosponsoring a letter in support of the regulation and are asking other lawmakers to co-sign. The deadline is the end of the day today.
Here's how you can help:
- – Call your congressional representatives and tell them what you think of President Bush's protection of freedom of conscience.
– Call the White House at (202) 456-1414 (ask the switchboard operator to be put through to the public comment line), and tell President Bush how you feel about protection of pro-life medical workers.
– Call Michael Leavitt, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services at (202) 690-7000 and voice your opinion on this critical issue
