CWA and Others: Stop the Abortion Mandate
WASHINGTON, Aug. 20 /Christian Newswire/ -- Concerned Women for America (CWA) is joining with the largest pro-life coalition against healthcare, Stop the Abortion Mandate, to keep abortion out of health care.
Wendy Wright, President of Concerned Women for America, said, "Liberal religious leaders representing a dwindling population are siding with another dwindling population -- those that support the Obama/Reid/Pelosi government takeover of health care that requires Americans to fund abortions. Their leader, Jim Wallis, proclaimed a few weeks ago that he would never agree to a health care bill that mandates abortion.
This last-minute rally for legislation that includes taxpayer funding for abortion and special privileges for abortionists to have access to school children (with Planned Parenthood in position to run school-based clinics) reveals that liberal religious leaders and Obama are not sincere in their claim to 'reduce abortions' and 'find common ground.' The vast majority of Americans, even those who call themselves pro-choice, do not want to fund abortions because they know that what the government funds, we get more of."
Concerned Women for America is the nation's largest public policy women's organization.
