Date:8/19/2009

"Tonight, President Obama deliberately misled the American people by dismissing the concerns of millions of Americans who have deep moral objections to their tax dollars paying for abortions. With this President, you must look at his actions because his rhetoric doesn't match his deeds.

"The President called abortion 'a distraction.' To the contrary, 3,000 unborn lives lost each day is no 'distraction' but a compelling moral tragedy. President Obama's denials are inexplicit, unsupported and factually plain wrong. He knows better, and should come clean with the American people.

"President Obama has fully demonstrated his commitment to fulfilling his stated goal of funding abortion, articulated in last year's presidential campaign. He is now attempting to obscure this commitment because of an overwhelmingly public backlash. He fully intends to fund or subsidize abortion services in the health care overhaul.

"The President knows very well that pro-abortion House and Senate Committees rejected every single amendment to keep abortion funding out of the health care overhaul. Instead, the House Energy and Commerce Committee adopted the Capps Amendments, which allows abortion coverage in the public health plan, and subsidizes health plans that cover abortion.

"This evening, President Obama stated that abortion funding in health care reform is a 'distraction.' If that is the case - then why not end this so-called 'distraction' and amend the bill to explicitly prohibit abortion funding and coverage with his health care plan?

"The Religious Left, which has blindly put their faith in this Administration's attempted takeover of health care, has repeatedly said they do not want to get into the weeds on the policy aspects of health care reform. Instead they say their focus is on the moral mandate that all people have health care.

"Ensuring that taxpayers are not forced to fund abortions and that the conscience rights of health care workers are protected is not getting into the weeds, but rather it is ensuring that health care reform is kept on a higher moral plain."
