AUL - Yoest on Smith-Lipinski bill 

YOEST: NEW BIPARTISAN BILL WILL END TAXPAYER-FUNDED ABORTION "ONCE AND FOR ALL"

WASHINGTON, D.C. - (7/29/10) - Today, Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Congressman Dan Lipinski (D-IL) are introducing the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,” which would establish a permanent government-wide prohibition on the use of taxpayer dollars for abortion.   

“The overwhelming majority of Americans are opposed to taxpayer-funded abortion, and the ‘No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act’ will comprehensively end this practice,” said Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President and CEO of Americans United for Life Action. “Congress can act now and fix this problem once and for all, and we are urging our grassroots activists across the nation to contact their representatives and support this sensible legislation.”

For decades, restrictions on the use of federal funds for abortions have been enacted separately and have been contained in annually-renewed Congressional temporary funding restrictions, regulations, and executive orders.  This new bill would eliminate the ongoing struggle that Congress faces every year to ensure that federal funds are not used for abortions by enshrining this principle in U.S. statutory law.

Further, the Smith-Lipinski bill codifies strong conscience protections to protect health care providers who do not want to participate in abortions from discrimination.


This sensible, bipartisan bill will ensure that no government programs may slip through loopholes in the law to use taxpayer funds for abortions.

Letter from Vietnam War Widow to Senator Jim Webb
Jim Webb
As a Vietnam Veteran, Webb is Against Legislation to Help other Veterans Suffering from Agent Orange Contamination
During a five year period in the Vietnam War, between 1965 and 1970, approximately 12,000,000 US gallons (45,000,000 l; 10,000,000 imp gal) of Agent Orange were sprayed in Vietnam, eastern Laos and parts of Cambodia. It has caused generations of horrible birth defects and it has claimed endless tens of thousands of lives. This practice allowed the US military to defoliate the jungles Vietnam, removing plants and other vegetation that allowed Communist fighters to conceal their locations, depriving guerrillas of food and cover, and destroying the ability of peasants to support themselves in the countryside.

NRN - Must Reads for July 29, 2010

Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson's quote of the day in reference to Charlie Rangel:

"It is not sufficient for Representative Rangel to simply plead guilty to very serious charges, but be allowed to keep his seat. Any deal that does not result in him resigning will forever be tainted with the appearance of a 'good ol' boy' cover-up. Charlie Rangel is a career politician who since the ethics probe began has contributed money to the campaigns of at least 119 members of Congress, including members of the ethics committee.

"Whether or not members give Rangel's donations back, they will be stained if he is allowed to keep his seat. Charlie Rangel should resign or be expelled."
