ACTION ALERT! Senator Hatch Amendments  
CFC Calls on ALL MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS to call Finance Committee Senator Bill Nelson today and urge him to support Sen. Hatch amendments to exclude abortion funding & protect conscience rights for health workers.

Senate Abortion Vote -Your Call Can Help!!!

Members of the U.S. Senate Financial Services Committee will be voting on September 29th on amendments to keep abortion coverage out of Sen. Max Baucus's (D-Mont.) health care bill.  Sen. Baucus's health care bill explicitly includes abortion and would subsidize health plans that cover all elective abortions.  Such subsidies for abortion goes well beyond the status quo of preventing federal funds either from paying for abortion or subsidizing plans that covers abortion as is prevented under current laws governing Medicaid, the Federal Employee Health Benefits Plan, and the State Children's Health Insurance Plan.

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) has introduced several amendments that would prevent government funding for abortion and would protect current conscience laws for health workers.

Please call Florida Senator Bill Nelson today and urge him to support Sen. Hatch's amendments to keep government funded abortions out of the Baucus bill:

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.): 202-224-5274
