This morning, Nancy Pelosi proposed a Rule for the debate on the health care reform bill that does NOT allow for a vote on the Pitts-Stupak Amendment.
This means that pro-life leaders in Congress will not get a chance to vote on or even debate the pro-life Amendment.
We’ve been preparing for this possibility and now it is time to act. I need you to tell your Representative to oppose the Pelosi Rule. We must keep the pressure on our elected officials.
Tell your Representative, in Congress, to join Bart Stupak in opposing the Pelosi Rule.

The Congressional Research Service, which conducts non-partisan research on legislation, has come out with a report that the health care reform bill, HR3200, does indeed use federal funds to pay for elective abortions and plans that cover elective abortions.
The Pitts-Stupak Amendment is a bipartisan amendment that seeks to stop this.
This attempt to keep the Pitts-Stupak Amendment out of the Rule will silence all opposition and debate on the issue.
Urge your representative to oppose the Pelosi Rule.
Bart Stupak, who has been a warrior in this battle, has asked pro-lifers everywhere to demand that their Representatives oppose this Pelosi Rule that muzzles pro-lifers in this critical debate.
Make sure that Rep. Massa joins Bart Stupak in voting against the Pelosi Rule.
Thank you for standing up for the unborn in this corrupt attempt to silence pro-life opposition.”
