Obama, some news media misrepresent provisions
Federal government would fund abortion under
health bills soon to be voted on in Congress

WASHINGTON (September 3, 2009)—The Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote soon—perhaps in late September—on “health care reform” legislation (H.R. 3200) that contains far-reaching pro-abortion provisions, including a new federal government insurance plan that would cover all elective abortions.

Leaders of U.S. Senate Democrats are also planning to push sweeping health-care restructuring legislation to the floor in the near future. A Senate committee has approved a health care bill that contains provisions that some pro-life analysts believe could result in the greatest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade.

The bills are being pushed hard by President Obama and by top Democratic congressional leaders, including pro-abortion House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nv.). The Democrats hold majority control of both the House and the Senate, occupying about three-fifths of the seats in each house.

Today’s VA Seems to Be Losing Its Way
By Sgt. Wayne Cockfield

I never heard the explosion, but I live with the memory. My last footstep took place 39 years and nine months ago in the jungles of Vietnam, and I have lived in a wheelchair ever since. Of all my memories of that fateful day, the most vivid is lying alone, unable to move, completely helpless, and intently staring at the bushes behind me.

It’s been said that waiting to die concentrates the mind, and my mind was concentrated, believe me, as I searched for the gun barrel and the enemy soldier that would end my life. He never came, thank God.

I spent the last 14 months of my 27 months of hospitalization in a Veterans Hospital. The care was first-rate, the caregivers had true compassion, and the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) completely carried out its mission statement to “fulfill President Lincoln’s promise—‘To care for him who shall have borne the battle’… ”

TELL CONGRESS: VOTE AGAINST ANY
HEALTH CARE BILL THAT INCLUDES ABORTION COVERAGE

By Wanda Franz, Ph.D.

OBAMA “FABRICATES” ON ABORTION
The liberal Faith for Health web site informs us: “[On] August 18, an estimated 140,000 people of faith gathered on a historic national conference call with President Obama and the American faith community.”  And what did the president say about health care? “There’s a lot of misinformation in this debate, and there are some folks who are frankly bearing false witness” (ABC News, 8/19/2009).  And “you’ve heard that this is all going to mean government funding of abortion. Not true. These are all fabrications” (Weekly Standard, 8/19/2009) Fabrications? Really, Mr. President?  We have news for the “140,000 people of faith” gathered electronically, so to speak, at the president’s feet: it is the president who bore “false witness” and engaged in a “fabrication.”
