Abortion in health care bill is no fantasy

"Some of the more recent utterances by Speaker Pelosi and other top House Democrats [regarding the health care legislation] suggest that they have stumbled down some sort of rabbit hole into a fantasy world," says Doug Johnson of National Right to Life.

The massive health care overhaul bill (H.R. 3590) has already passed the Senate, on December 24, 2009. In order to enact it, however, President Obama and Pelosi must convince a majority in the House of Representatives to also vote for the bill.

And despite what Pelosi and others say, the Senate bill is the most pro-abortion single piece of legislation that has ever come to the House floor for a vote, since Roe v. Wade. Read about how the bill would significantly expand abortion here.

Please contact your member of the U.S. House, urging him or her to oppose the Senate-passed bill because of its pro-abortion provisions. The vote in the House will probably come before the end of March, perhaps as soon as March 16.
