It has been a challenging week for the cause of life. We are making significant progress, but the enemies of life still control the levers of power and are working to advance their pro-abortion agenda.
Over the past week, a pro-abortion governor vetoed legislation that would have allowed his state to opt-out of taxpayer-funded abortion, radicals in Congress proposed the use of military bases for abortion, and we learned that President Obama's Supreme Court nominee believes that partial-birth abortion "may be the best or most appropriate" option for women.
Governor Charlie Crist of Florida has just vetoed legislation that would have opted Florida out of taxpayer-funded abortion and would have given women the option of having an ultrasound prior to an abortion. This is a major setback in our battle to stop the radical growth of the abortion industry (using our tax dollars), but with your support we will keep up the fight!
We are working to save unborn children in all 50 states, and despite the setback in Florida, we still have opportunities to save lives now. With your immediate help, we will have the funds necessary to work with legislatures and governors in Louisiana, Michigan, Ohio, and South Carolina who are currently considering "opt-out" legislation. But time is short, and the pro-abortion lobby will stop at nothing in trying to sway state elected officials.
Will you support AUL's efforts to stop taxpayer-funded abortion in these states by making an urgent, tax-deductible contribution of $50, $100, $250, or more?
With the support of an anti-life President and Congress, taxpayer-funded abortion is becoming the law of the land in many states. It is a fact: we are witnessing the greatest expansion of abortion in America since Roe v. Wade.
And using our tax-dollars to fund abortions across the country is not enough for those advancing the pro-abortion agenda. Last week a committee in the U.S. Senate voted in favor of using taxpayer-funded hospitals on military bases around the world to perform abortions. The fight to maintain existing law preventing military hospitals from performing abortions now goes to the rest of the Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives. We urgently need your support to keep up the fight against the expansion of abortion using our tax dollars - at home, and on our military bases overseas.
Your support has been vital to our efforts over the past several months, and I hope you will continue to partner with us now. As you know, AUL is working to raise a total of $360,000 by June 30th to continue our life-saving momentum and to stand firm against this onslaught of pro-abortion law.

If we meet our fundraising goal, we will also be able to alert the Senate to Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan's radical, pro-abortion stance before her confirmation hearings. Make no mistake about it: Ms. Kagan is the most virulent, pro-abortion Supreme Court nominee in over a decade. Our recent investigation has unearthed alarming information about Ms. Kagan's anti-life positions. In a December 14, 1996 memo, Ms. Kagan discloses her true feelings in support of partial-birth abortion. Her own handwritten notes state that the Clinton Administration should take the position that partial-birth abortion "may be the best or most appropriate" option for women! This is an outrageous judgment for any Supreme Court nominee. And it's yet another reason why we must redouble our efforts for the cause of life.
