At Capitol Hill Rally, Yoest calls on Congress to Vote No on Abortion-Funding Health Care Bill

March 20, 2010


“They don’t have the votes,” she notes.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Americans United for Life Action President Dr. Charmaine Yoest today joined the rally of Americans opposed to the current health care bill in the shadow of the Capitol and called on Congress to respect the law of the land and refuse the most massive increase in taxpayer funding of abortion in the nation’s history.

“The bottom line is they do not have the votes,” said Yoest, the president of the nation’s oldest pro-life organization.  Yoest joined with grassroots leaders and fellow citizens calling for a No Vote on the health care reform package, and was among the luminaries and national leaders who stood together on the eve of the heath care vote to make one last appeal.

“Never before in the history of this country have taxpayer dollars been seized like this to expand federal funding of abortion,” noted Dr. Yoest. “This vote will count when the House and Senate go before their constituents, no matter the kind of verbal gymnastics employed by the pro-abortion lobby. A Yes vote for this bill is a vote to fund abortion with tax dollars which more than seven out of ten Americans oppose. In fact, this is the only bi-partisan agreement we’ve seen in the health care debate.”

“Whether Republican or Democrat, whether pro-life or pro-choice, the American people do not want Uncle Sam in the abortion business. AUL Action asks the House to respect the wishes of their fellow citizens and vote No.”

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO…how many times do we have to say it for the Prez and all his advisors to get the hint that we do not want abortion funded through universal health care…and universal health care at all. He does not care about the people who her serves. He only wants to have a legacy.

How many times must we say “NO NO NO NO NO NO to U.S. GOVERNMENT RUN HEALTH CARE?” Please listen, please listen. By far the MAJORITY of AMERICANS over and over and over have said “NO Government run health care”. Please listen and do NOT GO AHEAD WITH THIS SOCALLED “CARE” PLAN. Without the STUPAK AMENDMENT this is totally unacceptable. Please remove Harry Reid’s hidden paragraphs that burn into law permanently and forever this new socalled health care … please.
CARE does not include paying for killing unborn babies.
Thanks ahead of time for “doing the right thing!!” A Christian Caring American

With much prayer that our leaders will have a change in their hearts. In the words of our Lord, “They do not know what they do.” Without the Lord in their hearts, they are bent on making this nation into a godless society. Our pleas fall on deaf ears because they think they are our “saviors.” When you hit your knees tonight ask the Lord to open their eyes. Especially President Obama – will you sink the “ship of state.” The majority of Americans are not in favor of national health care – listen to your citizens!!!!!!!!!

Please do not pass the health care bill with abortion funding!!!! Protect our unborn!

Katrina Roeher May March 21, 2010 at 9:31 am

Please stand up for the unborn, these are lives and this is plain and simple murder!!! God created these lives and I am sure he didn’t do it for them to be murdered in the womb! Stop the government run health care plan before it is too late, government funded abortion is not what this country should stand for. What is this world coming to and if this goes through what will be next. Something to think about.
