Health care 'reform' votes coming after Labor Day

An update on the health care "reform" effort from NRLC:

The U.S. House and U.S. Senate are expected to vote after Labor Day on "health care reform" bills that, in their current forms, could produce the greatest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade.

The bills are being pushed hard by President Obama and by top Democratic congressional leaders, including pro-abortion House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.). However, growing public concerns about the bills caused sufficient resistance among some factions of Democrats that the leadership was forced to abandon the original plan of having floor votes on the bills in July. The House has gone into recess until after Labor Day, and the Senate will join them on about August 7. The August recess provides an excellent opportunity for concerned citizens to express themselves to their senators and House members while the lawmakers are back home taking the pulse of public opinion.

Read more, and be sure to contact your elected officials during the August recess. Urge them to oppose any health care legislation that does not explicitly exclude abortion.
