President Obama Says Pro-Lifers Are Lying About Abortion And Health Care

 

Dear Right To Life Friend,

President Barack Obama has accused pro- lifers of "bearing false witness" and fabrication in regard to our claims that the health care bills under consideration would fund abortion.

  President Obama Says Pro-Lifers Are Lying About Abortion And Health Care

In a conference call last Wednesday President Barack Obama told thousands of listeners that our claim that the health care bills would fund abortion is "bearing false witness" and that these claims are fabrications. The President should speak for himself.

Yesterday, FactCheck.org, a nonpartisan watch dog group for public officials, the media and other groups, said that President Obama has it wrong. "The House bill would allow abortions to be covered by a federal plan and by federally subsidized private plans."

This follows a story earlier this month by the Associated Press, "Gov't insurance would allow coverage for abortion" (August 5, 2009).

That the President should resort to these false accusations of pro-lifers and other opponents of taxpayer funding of abortion as lying, as well as misrepresenting the bills, this shows the impact that our phone calls, emails, demonstrations, showing up at town hall meetings, writing letters to the editor and telling our friends has had.

Obama was very forceful about funding abortion through health care reform during the campaign. He told Planned Parenthood that his health care vision included abortion. But now he has resorted to calling us liars, or bearers of false witness.

This is beneath the dignity of his office, just as it is beneath the dignity of the offices of other Congressional leaders like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and others who have called their opponents angry mobs, un-American, evil mongers, the new racists; said they are carrying swastikas and comparing them to Nazis for showing up and daring to question them and criticize the bill. What happened to the President's promise of being some kind of transformative figure who brings people together?

There's more work to do, but the President of the United States' willingness to resort to personal attacks shows how effective all of us have been. The public is on our side. Seventy-one percent oppose requiring "insurance plans pay for abortions when the abortions are performed as a method of birth control." Seventy-one percent oppose "using tax dollars to pay for abortions here in the United States."

Pro-life advocacy is working. Keep up the good work. Let's pour it on. Call and or email your Congressman and Senators. Ask them "to oppose any health care reform bill that does not explicitly exclude abortion." If passed without doing so, it will lead to the most massive increase in abortion since Roe v. Wade. Tell your friends and ask them to do the same. Go to a town hall meeting (see below). Write a letter to the editor. And remember to be courteous. Contact information for your Congressman and Senators is to the side.
