NRLC urges calls to stop Pelosi abortion bill

U.S. House Speaker Pelosi wants to ram the
pro-abortion health care bill through the House

Telephone your representative in the U.S. House today!

WASHINGTON (October 26, 2009) -- This is an urgent congressional alert from the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) in Washington, D.C.  Please act on this alert immediately.  Please forward this e-mail to all pro-life lists (e.g., lists of pro-life groups, pro-life church members, and pro-life family members).

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (Ca.) is planning to try to ram the massive health care bill (H.R. 3200) through the House on short notice, without allowing consideration of a critical pro-life amendment.  National Right to Life is urging every pro-life citizen to immediately TELEPHONE the office of his or her representative in the U.S. House of Representatives with a clear and firm message urging a NO vote on the so-called "rule," which is the procedural vote that would allow passage of H.R. 3200 with no amendments allowed, and also to vote against the pro-abortion bill itself.

Even if you have already called and written your representatives in Congress about the health care bills, it is critical that you call again now.  This will just take a few minutes.  For guidance on how to make your call, click here, or go to the NRLC Legislative Action Center at and click on the "Urgent Congressional Alert."

Once you are on the NRLC website, you will see a box labeled "CALL NOW."  Once you enter your zip code in that box, you will be shown the name and phone number of your representative in the U.S. House, along with suggested "talking points" that will help you deliver a crisp, clear message to your representative's staff person in Washington, D.C.

You will also see there a simple "feedback" form that you can use, if you wish, to send NRLC a short e-mail report on what your representative's staff person told you about how your representative intends to vote on these matters.  These reports are extremely helpful to NRLC's efforts to prevent enactment of this pro-abortion legislation.

Detailed information about the pro-abortion components of the "health care" legislation, including NRLC's most recent letter to U.S. House members and press releases, is posted on the NRLC website at
