Americans United for Life: Votes and ads and minors… oh my!

by E. Carroll

-AUL released a press release entitled “Critical House Vote on Health Care This Week: Current House Health Care Bill Would Create the Largest Expansion of Taxpayer-Funded Abortion in over 30 years”.

-Another “Stop the Abortion Mandate” will begin running on cable news today and is produced by Americans United for Life Action and the Stop the Abortion Mandate Coalition.  The ad can be viewed at

-AUL bloggers discuss the following:

–“Last week, Abby Johnson, the director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan, Texas–which was the first clinic protested by the pro-life group 40 Days for Life–quit her job after watching an ultrasound of an abortion in progress.”

–“Minors in Illinois have been unprotected from the harms of abortion for decades.  The legislature passed a parental notice law in 1995—a law substantially similar to the 36 other state laws requiring either parental notice or consent.  But of course, the ACLU had to step in and challenge the law.  And until the Seventh Circuit (finally) lifted an injunction against the law this summer, the law had been unenforceable.”

–“The U.S. House health care overhaul bill H.R. 3962 could receive a voteas early as Thursday.  H.R. 3962 would create a new stream of federal funding not covered by the restrictions of the Hyde Amendment prohibiting federal funding of abortion.”
