Senator Orrin Hatch to Propose Pro-Life Amendment to so-called "Health-Care" Bill!  
CFC
The Christian Family Coalition announced that U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch, the Utah Republican, said he will propose an amendment to strip abortion funding from the bill! "The sanctity of life is not an issue that can be traded away for political expediency," Hatch said recently on the Senate floor.

The House provisions, in contrast to the terribly flawed provisions in the Reid bill, contain language that would not only safeguard the rights of the unborn but also would prevent medical providers from being coerced into performing procedures that violate their conscience.  
 
“The Reid language authorizes abortion in the government operated health plan (or the public option) and federal subsidies for insurance coverage that includes abortion,” Hatch continued. Hatch noted recent polls from the Washington Post, ABC News and CNN that found 61 percent of Americans do not “support federal funding for abortion.”
 
"We commend Senator Hatch for proposing this amendment which will conform to current federal law prohibiting direct abortion funding" stated Anthony Verdugo, Founder and Executive Director, Christian Family Coalition.
