Family Research Council to Deliver Thousands of Petitions to Congressman Obey's Office
WASHINGTON, Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Tomorrow Family Research Council will deliver a petition with 45,000 signatures to Congressman David Obey's (D-WI) offices in Washington, D.C., and his Wisconsin district, urging him to use his position as chairman of the House Appropriations Committee to ensure that taxpayers are not forced to pay for abortion on demand.
The House Appropriations Committee plays a key role in deciding the fate of 20 laws that ensure that U.S. taxpayers are not forced to hand over their hard-earned dollars to pay for and promote abortion on demand.
"Congress has enacted these rules consistently for the past three decades," said Family Research Council President Tony Perkins. "Congressman Obey is known for his work on education and ethics reform. To repeal these laws would tarnish his legacy and turn him into a veritable abortion czar."
"Chairman Obey has the most power of any member of Congress to prevent the repeal of these wise and settled laws. These rules consist of the Hyde Amendment, conscience protections, and numerous other reasonable policies that the American people widely support. We hope Congressman Obey will act to keep Congress - and us taxpayers - out of the abortion business."
