Action Alert! Help Prohibit Public Funding of Abortion in Health Care Reform

From the Michigan Catholic Conference: Urge Sen. Stabenow to Support Pro-Life Amendments

The Senate Finance Committee has begun its markup of Sen. Baucus' health care reform bill, and your advocacy is urgently needed to help protect conscience rights and to prohibit public funding of abortions.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has been among the strongest supporters for health care reform in the United States. The bishops' position is that the nation is in desperate need of a universal health care policy, one that ensures coverage for all, especially the poor, and one that ensures no public funds are used for abortions.

Please take a brief moment to contact Senator Debbie Stabenow, who sits on the committee, and urge her to support amendments that have been offered by Sens. Enzi and Hatch that would promote respect for human life and the dignity of all, including the poor and the unborn.
