This abortion industry power-grab is attempting to:
* Impose one of the cornerstones of the "Freedom of Choice Act" (FOCA) by stealth
* Force taxpayers to fund a huge abortion industry bailout -- something the majority of Americans oppose, and certainly cannot afford in these tough economic times
* Mandate that virtually every American be forced into a health plan that includes abortion coverage
* Require honorable medical providers to violate their consciences and perform abortions -- or risk losing their jobs
This morning's New York Times features a prominent story confirming that an "administration official refused Sunday to rule out the possibility that federal tax money might be used to pay for abortions under proposed health care legislation."
Put bluntly, these proposed measures could lead to the largest abortion expansion since Roe v. Wade.
State Deputy Herb Maddock issued the following statement and urges all Knights and pro-life supporters to make their voices heard, "This effort to fund abortions is a way to disenfranchise the majority of the American public who are decidedly pro-life, Those individuals that continue to push their pro-abortion agenda through these backdoor methods, know they are loosing the battle to protect the sanctity of life and are grasping at any straw they might find. We must not let them fool our legislators into thinking any attempt to cheapen human life is acceptable."
This abortion mandate must be STOPPED!
