From an AUL email I received:
This is the moment. Today is the day for taking a stand. We are on the eve of the vote on the U.S. House of Representatives pro-abortion health care bill H.R. 3962.
There is nothing more important right now than FLOODING our Congressmen with calls and e-mails insisting that they vote against using federal dollars for abortion funding.
This afternoon, pro-abortion House Leaders are expected to put forward a “Rule” which BLOCKS the only Pro-Life Amendment on the table, the Stupak-Pitts Amendment, from receiving a vote.
Instead, the “Rule” is expected to include the Ellsworth Amendment, which House Leadership has been falsely calling a “pro-life” amendment. The Ellsworth Amendment allows federal funding of abortion in the public plan and allows government subsidies to go to private plans that include abortion coverage.
Don’t be fooled. Such a Rule would prevent any truly pro-life provision from being considered or included. The Stupak-Pitts Amendment is THE only provision that would truly exclude abortion funding, but we expect the Rule to bar a vote on the Stupak-Pitts Amendment.
If H.R. 3962 becomes law, it will do exactly what we have feared: It will create the largest expansion of abortion funding in over 30 years.
We only have TODAY! Don’t delay! Help us stop abortion funding under the guise of health care reform! Call House Leadership and call your Member of Congress!
I have contacted my representative, Congressman John Carter, and have already received his promise to continue to work hard to protect babies in the womb. Have you contacted yours? Call or email today. Please.
And pray. Pray much.
