As part of its Stop Abortion Funding campaign, the Susan B. Anthony List has mobilized its 280,000-member grassroots network to lobby members of Congress to vote for the repeal of the pro-abortion Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
"Keeping abortion out of health care"as the antitheses to it "was the critical issue with enough votes to stop or pass healthcare. It was a dramatic caving in on abortion in health care by a group of now former Members of Congress that finally sealed the deal on the bill," says SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.
On Friday, January 7, the House will vote on a resolution to move forward with repeal of the pro-abortion health care reform law. If the resolution passes, the House is expected to vote on the law's repeal on January 12, along with a motion that instructs Congressional committees to report legislation that will provide protection for unborn life and the conscience of health care workers.
"A tidal wave of grassroots activity replaced those self-labeled pro-life members with true pro-life Congressmen," Dannenfelser says. "Democracy works. Now new pro-life members, sent to correct injustice are doing so. We call on Congress to repeal this law that destroys life using our tax dollars."
