During the battle over health care reform, President Obama promised the American people that “no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions.” The President and his allies in Congress abandoned that promise and ignored seven out of 10 voters who oppose taxpayer-funded abortion. The result: a new health care law that clearly allows the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade. These “pro-life” politicians did not honor their commitment to the American people, and incredibly, are still expecting to be elected this November.
Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President and CEO of Americans United for Life Action, announced a new effort this week to hold politicians accountable and clearly demonstrate that life counts. On Saturday, AUL Action rolled out VotingforLife.com, an innovative online grassroots effort that empowers Americans to take a stand.
“Remember,” said Yoest, “you and I promised elected officials that they would be held accountable for their support of taxpayer-funded abortion in health care reform. Now it’s time to act and take a stand.”
By going to VotingforLife.com, activists can spread the word, get critical early-voting information, tell friends how they can help, share this effort on a blog, get the word out on Facebook and Twitter, and even get a “Voting for Life” bumper sticker. With just two weeks until the election, time is of the essence. Votingforlife.com—a one-stop pro-life resource for 2010—is a must-see.
Yoest urged pro-life Americans in her message, stating that “politicians are going to learn that Life Counts in this election; so go to votingforlife.com today and get started.”
