Dr. Charmaine Yoest: “60 Senators Just Made History”

December 21, 2009

Statement of Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President of Americans United for Life Action

“60 U.S. Senators just made history by voting to move forward with a bill that imposes a first-ever mandatory abortion tax on the American people. Majority Leader Reid held this vote in the middle of the night because he knows that the vast majority of Americans don’t want this new tax and don’t want tax dollars bankrolling insurance plans that cover abortion. A ‘yes’ vote is a solid ‘yes’ to the expansion of federal funding for abortion. We will be making this tragic decision clear to those constituents who have been misinformed that their Senator is pro-life.”

- Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President of AUL Action
