Showdown time for abortion coverage in health-care reform

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Sep 25, 2009

 The US Senate's financial-services committee has scheduled votes for next Tuesday, September 29, on a series of proposed amendments that would eliminate abortion funding from the Baucus health-care proposal. This will be a critical test of President Obama's promise to advance legislation that does not include taxpayer subsidies for abortion. 

Now here's another critical test:

Between now and next Tuesday, any organization truly dedicated to eliminating abortion funding from the health-care proposal will issue a clear statement insisting that the pro-life amendments must be adopted. If an organization remains silent as those votes approach, you can legitimately question the sincerity of the group's commitment to the pro-life cause.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
