I Stand With Stupak

Nancy Pelosi and House Democratic Leaders have gone back on their word. They refuse to remove abortion subsidies from the healthcare bill.

Rep. Bart Stupak has steadfastly opposed these attempts to hijack healthcare reform with big bailouts for the abortion industry.

Stupak is standing strong on principle and refuses to roll over.

“Even if [the Democratic Leaders] don’t have the votes, it’s been made clear to us that they won’t insert our language on the abortion issue,” said Stupak.

But Stupak says Pelosi is trying to strong-arm the 12 pro-life Democrats aligned with Stupak. The pressure is extremely intense and Pelosi is willing to win at any cost.

“I am a definite ‘no’ vote,” said Stupak. “The others are having both of their arms twisted, and we’re all getting pounded by our traditional Democratic supporters, like unions.”

The Unions are even promising to recruit primary challengers against anyone who refuses to support this pro-abortion healthcare bill.

We can’t stay silent. There’s too much at stake. These men and women need our help!

These pro-life Democrats need to know that the American people are on their side. Rep. Stupak says that if pro-abortion healthcare passes with the support of pro-life Democrats, “It would be very, very hard for someone who is a right-to-life Democrat to run for office.”

We can’t let that happen. We can’t let this bill crush the budding pro-life movement in the Democratic Party.

And more important than any political party, we must Stand With Stupak and demand that healthcare reform maintain the status quo: No federal funding for abortion.

Call these pro-life Democrats. Tell them Stupak is standing up for the little guy. Tell them to “Stand With Stupak.”

Brian Burch

I stand with the pro-life members of the House of Representatives, especially those members who have stood with Rep. Stupak.

I urge you to hold fast to your position, and not to give in to pressure – no matter the cost!

You have stood with Stupak this far. Please preserve the status quo and protect taxpayers from funding abortion and companies that perform or cover abortion.

This is no time to give up. This can be your finest hour. Stand with Stupak!
