Funding of Overseas Pro-Abortion Groups

Tireless efforts paid off.
||Pro-abortion President Bill Clinton. Forced to accept
By NRLC Federal Legislative Office
WASHINGTON (Dec. 6) For the first time in his seven years
in the White House, President Clinton has been forced to accept restrictions on U.S.
funding of groups that promote abortion in foreign nations.
In end-of-year budget negotiations with congressional Republican leaders, Clinton
reluctantly agreed to language under which 96% of U.S. funds for population control may go
only to groups that agree not to perform abortions or campaign to legalize abortion in
FATE OF MEDICALLY VULNERABLE IN HANDS OF SENATE
By Burke Balch, J.D., Director, Dept. of Medical Ethics
A momentous debate will likely be joined early next year
when the Senate votes on whether to end a filibuster of the Pain Relief Promotion Act,
which the House of Representatives passed in October by a strong bipartisan majority of
271 to 156.
The crucial issue at stake is whether federally controlled drugs will be used to kill
patients. To date the use of such drugs is the only method that has been used to kill
patients under Oregon's legalization of assisting suicide.

RANKINGS AND REALITY
For the third time, Fortune
magazine (December 6, 1999) has released its list of the most influential lobbying groups
in Washington, D.C. The list reflects the judgment of the movers and shakers in
In 1997, NRLC ranked among the top "Power 25" in 10th place. In 1998, we had
advanced to 9th place. And now, in 1999, we are in 8th place. In fact, NRLC is the only
pro-life group in the 1999 listing of the "Power 25."
In 1997, Fortune also looked at the expense of lobbying. Fortune ranked NRLC
among the top three lobbying "bargains." In other words, your contributions got
a very high return on the dollar. Without a question, this is still true today.
Clearly, our carefully thought out legislative campaigns and our disciplined lobbying
efforts on Capitol Hill have had a strong impact. Senators and congressmen and their staff
have come to respect our strategic judgment and trust us. Even the pro-abortionists in
Congress learned a hard (but good) lesson: NRLC is comfortable with facts and the truth,
and the pro-abortion lobby is not. They lie--even to their own supporters.
