Yoest on House Passage of Health Care Legislation

March 21, 2010

“Today, Congress ignored the explicit wishes of the American people by
voting to establish taxpayer-funded abortion. This reversal of
long-standing federal policy will not stand. Furthermore, the
assurance by the White House to address the problem of abortion
funding in the health care bill through use of an executive order is
an open acknowledgement that the bill just passed is pro-abortion
legislation.

The AUL legal team has concluded that an executive order is not an
adequate fix to mitigate this legislation’s establishment of
taxpayer-funded abortion. An executive order, for example, cannot
prevent insurance companies that pay for abortions in the exchanges
from receiving federal subsidies.

We will work to dismantle taxpayer-funded abortion at the federal
level and begin an aggressive, state-by-state campaign to help states
opt out of subsidizing plans that cover abortions through their
exchanges. We will also seek every opportunity to litigate this matter
in the courts. Given that seven out of ten voters agree that no public
funds should pay for abortion, I am confident that with hard work we
will succeed.”

They won’t listen. They didn’t see us as we marched and protested. They didn’t listen to our phone calls or read our emails. I really don’t think all the money you would spend will get anywhere. They are draining our already empty wells and we are fighting a war that the enemy went through the back gate. May we fight like hell for Nov. and I can not wait until 2012.

We are fighting a battle that belongs to the Lord, We are reaping what we have allowed.
If more pro-life voters would vote pro-life we would have TRUE Pro-life candidates running and winning!!
The money used in the corrupt justice system needs to be used to support a REAL MORAL life affirming candidate!
