Attack On NV LIFE & Pro-Lifers Blows Up Hours Later.
Health Care Reform Bills Cover Abortion Same Day Planned
Parenthood Mar Monte Says NV LIFE Lying That Bills Cover
Dear Right To Life Friend,
Pro-lifers are getting to Planned Parenthood. What else
explains their senseless attack on Nevada LIFE and our
pro-life colleagues in their
opinion in yesterday's Reno Gazette Journal?
Yesterday Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Alison Gauldin
Nevada LIFE op-ed in last week's RGJ with this. "It
is reprehensible that Nelson and his anti-choice group
seem willing to use scare tactics and lies to prevent
needed health care reform just to further their attack
on Planned Parenthood and women across the country.
Nelson's column spread misinformation about abortion
coverage to stall health care reform. As the debate
around health care reform heats up, it is important to
clarify the myths and misinformation."
We have plenty to say about this and regard it as a
badge of honor to be attacked by Planned Parenthood. For
the meantime we'll ignore most of Gauldin's pathetic
personal attacks, but for today, let's get down to the
most important part. Will the health care plans under
consideration fund abortion?
Gauldin says one our lies or myths is our claim that the
health care bills being considered in Congress will fund
abortion. Just a few embarrassing hours after Gauldin's
charges were published, the
AP published a story saying that the bills will
indeed fund abortion. This was a reversal of the AP's
story earlier this week that the health care bills
didn't fund abortion. It was so discredited that not
even the abortion apologist AP editors could let it
If the bills don't fund abortion why has every amendment
to exclude abortion been voted down in committee? Even
the Capps amendment which is regarded by NOW as
prohibiting funding of abortion, would actually end up
subsidizing abortion through wacky accounting schemes.
Planned Parenthood just doesn't want you to know.
Why have these amendments been voted down? Because those
legislators, many funded by Planned Parenthood, know it
will be used, and they want it to be used, to fund
abortion, require coverage, create an abortion mandate
and preempt state protections and limitations. Those
protections and limitations include parental
notification laws, bans on brutal partial birth
abortions, waiting periods, more informed consent,
ultrasound requirements, conscience protections, and
requirements to make clinics meet the standards of other
out patient surgical facilities.
All of those protections and limitations are supported
by large majorities of Americans including many who are
pro-choice. But Planned Parenthood opposes them all.
Planned Parenthood even went to court to support
barbaric partial birth abortions. They are the leaders
at slandering and attempting to shut down crisis
pregnancy centers. They've also opposed measures to
screen women for coercion. All this shows Planned
Parenthood to be the real extremists and abortion
fanatics that they are.
We'll comment on their other comments later, but the
last person to ever question anyone's integrity is a
Planned Parenthood spokesperson. Yesterday's AP story is
what happens when they do.
The good news is that this shows that pro- lifers are
getting to Planned Parenthood and their politicians with
their calls, emails and protests. That's the likely
explanation for yesterday's attack on Nevada LIFE and
pro- life groups. Keep it up. Keep making calls. Send
emails. Go to a town hall meeting. Write a letter to the
editor. And remember to be courteous. Contact
