Americans United for Life's Statement on Finance Committee Vote
Date:10/13/2009

WASHINGTON, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President and CEO of Americans United for Life, made the following statement Tuesday regarding the Finance Committee vote on health care reform:

"The Senate Finance Committee has joined the four other committees with jurisdiction over health care reform in reporting out a bill that does not include explicit language excluding abortion funding and coverage. In fact, the Baucus bill explicitly includes abortion funding and coverage."

Dr. Yoest continued, "History has shown that unless legislation relating to health care reform includes language that expressly excludes abortion, courts and administrative agencies will interpret the legislation as including abortion. We urge the Democratic leadership in the Senate to ensure that the final Senate bill includes such language before the bill is brought to the Senate Floor."
