AUL - Commends Senators Who Rejected Taxpayer-Funded Abortions on Military Bases


WASHINGTON, D.C. (12-09-10) – Americans United for Life Action President Dr. Charmaine Yoest called the vote on the Department of Defense Authorization bill a “sign that Washington is finally listening to the concerns of the American people.”

She made the following statement:

“We applaud the outstanding leaders in the Senate who led the fight to win today’s key vote rejecting taxpayer-funded abortion in the military. They stood on principle and scored again a major victory for our service members and their families. We know that more than 70 percent of Americans oppose taxpayer funding of abortion, and this vote reflected the moral and fiscal values of Americans."
