WASHINGTON, DC — Pro-abortion activists will lobby Washington on Wednesday, December 2nd in their campaign against the U.S. House bill’s pro-life Stupak-Pitts Amendment.
Americans United for Life President and CEO Charmaine Yoest released this statement in response to the abortion lobby’s effort to expand taxpayer funding of abortion:
Dr. Yoest continued, “By confusing abortion with health care, the feminist groups and the abortion lobby actually demean women with their argument that the destruction of unborn children is essential to feminine power.”
AUL President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest is available to provide further comment and analysis of women’s health issues in the health care bill. To arrange an interview, contact Heather Smith 202-270-9962 orHeather.Smith@aul.org.
