As a firm supporter of protecting life, I am deeply concerned by proposed healthcare reform legislation that poses serious risk to the unborn citizens of our nation.
Without abortion explicitly excluded from any government-mandated or government-funded benefits package, abortion will be included. I cannot, and will not, support abortion as a so-called “health benefit.” Furthermore, in legislation as important and future-shaping as healthcare reform, safeguards must be enacted to ensure, beyond any doubt, that abortion is not mandated or subsidized.
As my elected official, I urge you to use the full influence of your office to uphold the sanctity of life and protect the unborn by including language that will explicitly exempt abortion services from mandatory coverage. Keep abortion services out of national healthcare legislation.
