Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council is at it again. He has sent out an email action alert to call your senators. Click on the banner below:
What can be wrong with ensuring “that abortion is not funded by government dollars”? It would be wonderful if it was true. Below is a copy of my email I sent to Tony Perkins and the FRC and about 700 others:
Really Tony, Senator Nelson’s amendment “will ensure that abortion is not funded by government dollars.”
Um, Tony, the Nelson Amendment states (Source: http://bennelson.senate.gov/press/press_releases/120709-01.cfm):
(3) NO DISCRIMINATION ON THE BASIS OF PROVISION OF ABORTION.—No Exchange participating health benefits plan may discriminate against any individual health care provider or health care facility because of its unwillingness to provide, pay for, provide coverage of, or refer for abortions.
(b) Limitation on Abortion Funding.—
(1) IN GENERAL.—No funds authorized or appropriated by this Act (or an amendment made by this Act) may be used to pay for any abortion or to cover any part of the costs of any health plan that includes coverage of abortion, EXCEPT IN THE CASE WHERE A WOMAN SUFFERS FROM A PHYSICAL DISORDER, PHYSICAL INJURY, OR PHYSICAL ILLNESS THAT WOULD, AS CERTIFIED BY A PHYSICIAN, PLACE THE WOMAN IN DANGER OF DEATH UNLESS AN ABORTION IS PERFORMED, INCLUDING A LIFE-ENDANGERING PHYSICAL CONDITION CAUSED BY OR ARISING FROM THE PREGNANCY ITSELF, OR UNLESS THE PREGNANCY IS THE RESULT OF AN ACT OF RAPE OR INCEST. (Emphasis added)
Tony, Random House Dictionary defines except as “with the exclusion of; excluding; save; but.”
Tony, you are deceitful and dishonest man and you are no friend of Christian families. You know very well that this will not stop government funded abortions.
An honorable and honest man is forthcoming with the truth.
Shame on you Tony Perkins, shame on you!!
To all my Christian and conservative readers who currently support the Family Research Council I urge you to stop immediately and let the FRC know that as long as the Dishonorable Tony Perkins is leading the organization, we will no longer financially support it.
P.S. I forwarded this email to more than at least one friend; I think it is around 700.
He who has ears let him hear!
