Congress Moves Forward With Tax-Funded Abortion Plans
Date:7/17/2009

WASHINGTON, July 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Family Research Council today expressed disappointment with the House of Representatives for approving the financial services legislation to allow taxpayer money to pay for abortions. In addition, the House Ways and Means Committee rejected amendments that would have prevented taxpayers from being forced to subsidize abortions within the Democrats' massive health care reform bill.

"The rejection of these pro-life amendments ignores public opinion and further solidifies the Democrats' health care overhaul as one big abortion industry bailout. President Obama's promise of 'reducing abortion' rings hollow as Congress finds ways to circumvent the historic federal ban on taxpayer-funded abortion with a wave of legislation that will flood the coffers of the abortion industry," said FRC President Tony Perkins. "Even Planned Parenthood's Guttmacher Institute recently stated that if abortion is taxpayer funded, abortions would rise by at least 30 percent."

"We applaud Congressmen Eric Cantor (R-VA) and Todd Tiahrt (R-KS) for offering amendments that would have protected not only taxpayers' pocketbooks but also mothers and their unborn children. Subsidizing abortions does nothing to increase the lack of access women have to abortion alternatives which are necessary to provide the support and care needed to carry their babies to term," added Perkins.

"This past week Congress advanced health care reform measures that are estimated to cost taxpayers well over a trillion or more in the next 10 years. This is yet more excessive government spending at a time when the federal government is already borrowing 47 cents of every dollar it spends. Against a backdrop of declining public support, the President has told Congressional leaders he wants them to pass a measure to permit the government to take over healthcare before they leave for their August break. The rush is on because public support for a government takeover is going south," said Perkins.

"The American people are beginning to question the wisdom of turning their health care decisions over to the federal government. After all, who wants a doctor with the empathy of the IRS, the speed of the Post Office and the efficiency of FEMA? That should be more than enough to prompt tax payers to seek a second opinion on Congress' prescription," concluded Perkins.
