Americans United for Life: Want to go into business? How about the “business of funding the destruction of unborn human life”?

by E. Carroll

-AUL Action released a new ad in response to health care reform.  The ad can be viewed at:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hX_9OSEo80&feature=player_embedded

-The Guttmacher Institute is being accused of pushing an “abortion-promoting agenda”.  The Institute recently released a study “that blames certain countries’ restrictive abortion laws for a high rate of deaths and complications from clandestine abortion in those countries.”  AUL claims that this research is bogus and that the Guttmacher’s results “contradict” the conclusion and that it is “ideologically” motivated.  http://blog.aul.org/

-“Yesterday, in The Wall Street Journal, AUL President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest argues in her op-ed “Tax Dollars Shouldn’t Fund Abortion” that the current proposals aren’t the status quo and in fact, they would ‘take us toward an era of unprecedented federal abortion funding.'”

Dr. Yoest writes,

“The Capps Amendment would side step the Hyde Amendment and other provisions in federal law. If it becomes law as part of health-care reform it would make abortion coverage a part of the public option, funnel tax dollars to private health plans that cover abortion, and ensure that every area of the country will have at least one health insurance plan that covers elective abortion. If this should happen, for the first time in more than 30 years the federal government would be in the business of funding the destruction of unborn human life.”
