On Monday, we told you about Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) confronting Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Maryland) about her pro-abortion amendment to the healthcare bill. Because I thought you’d like to see this event take place, I have the video posted below–with a great introduction from President of Family Research Council Tony Perkins.
We called Rep. Mike Ross’ congressional office in Washington D.C. yesterday, and one of his staffers told us that Ross “opposes the healthcare bill in its current form.” This is great news, of course—and I know that your phone calls and e-mails have had a positive impact. But we cannot take this gain for granted.
Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) recently questioned Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-Maryland) about the Kennedy health reform bill—and whether a new provision would include abortion providers—in the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee. Sen. Mikulski confirmed that the bill “would include Planned Parenthood clinics” and “any service deemed medically necessary or medically appropriate.”
