FRC Action's Tony Perkins Challenges Planned Parenthood President to Debate

WASHINGTON, Aug. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins re-issued his invitation to Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards to debate the question -- Does the President's health care reform plan include a mandate for abortion coverage and taxpayer funded abortions?

In a piece published today by the Huffington Post, Planned Parenthood's president states that the plan doesn't mandate abortion coverage or funding. In a letter to Capitol Hill staff last week, Perkins responded to Planned Parenthood's inaccurate claims --

Family Research Council Action President Tony Perkins had this to say:

"Last week, I couriered a letter to Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards inviting her to debate the question of taxpayer-funded abortion and whether or not citizens would be forced to fund abortion under the current health care reform bills.

"The nation's largest abortion provider continues to make public accusations that FRC's latest commercial on health care reform is misleading. In it, we warn Americans that the current proposals will lead to an abortion mandate--something Planned Parenthood has actively lobbied for.

"Planned Parenthood's accusations continue to mount but I have yet to receive a response to the invitation to debate the question of taxpayer-funded abortions. Planned Parenthood says abortion funding isn't there. I say, come to a debate prepared to prove it."
