Health Care in the Senate: Not Over Yet

By Dr. Jeff Mirus (bio - articles - email) | Mar 24, 2010

There is still time for pro-lifers to secure legislative gains in the health care legislation which passed the House on Sunday. This is because the reconciliation process used to pass the bill requires the Senate to vote on the final reconciliation package approved by the House, and there is one last opportunity for amendments.

According to Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of Susan B. Anthony List, Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, who is also a medical doctor, will offer two amendments. One amendment would prevent the funding of RU-486 and the other would ensure conscience protection for doctors who do not wish to be involved in abortion. While the entire package will be voted on later this week, these two amendments could be voted on as early as this evening.

For the easiest way to contact your senators about these amendments, see this link or visit www.sba-list.org.
