Washington, DC - (10/14/10) - According to a national poll taken during last year’s health care debate, seven out of ten voters are opposed to taxpayer-funded abortion. That’s why political candidates in 2010 are doing everything they can to be on the right side of this issue. In the end, this political game-changer comes down to a single question:

Was a vote for the health care bill a vote for taxpayer-funded abortion?

Saunders and the Americans United for Life legal team for an exclusive election tele-briefing on Tuesday, October 19th at 10:00 a.m. Saunders and the AUL legal team have prepared a legal affidavit they will share and will also address any and all questions on this issue.

Americans United for Life (AUL) is a nonprofit, public-interest law and policy organization whose vision is a nation in which everyone is welcomed in life and protected in law. The first national pro-life organization in America, AUL has been committed to defending human life through vigorous judicial, legislative, and educational efforts at both the federal and state levels since 1971.

AUL's legal team has been involved in every abortion-related case before the U.S. Supreme Court including the successful defense of the Hyde Amendment. AUL also publishes Defending Life, the most comprehensive state-by-state legal guide of its kind, which is distributed annually to legislators across the nation.

Recently, Americans United for Life detailed the facts on taxpayer-funding of abortion during the debate over federal health care legislation, provided legal assistance to states working to opt out of abortion provisions created by federal health care law, and has played a major role in educating policymakers on the record of President Obama’s then-nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court.
