Pro-Life Activists Travel to Martha's
Vineyard to Challenge President Obama on Taxpayer Funded Abortions in
His Health Care Plan
The group to remind the President that abortion is not health care and
there is no vacation from human rights, social justice and the truth.
The activists will be on Martha's Vineyard, Thursday, August 27.
The activists will be holding large banners saying "Abortion is Not
Health Care" and "President Obama human rights begin in the womb...
Protect America's children."
The events on Martha's Vineyard are part of a national campaign called
"Abortion is Not Health Care" sponsored by the Christian Defense
Coalition, Operation Rescue, Expectant Mother Care and the Coalition
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition,
"We are traveling to Martha's Vineyard to publicly remind the President
that abortion is not health care and not one penny of public monies
should be spent on paying for abortions.
"We think it is important during this national debate on health care,
that President Obama embrace social justice and human rights for
We do not want the President to turn health care, which is supposed to
heal and bring comfort to those in need, into something that destroys
and diminishes innocent human life.
"Our activities will remind President Obama there is no vacation from
human rights, social justice and the truth. We prayerfully ask
that while he is spending $30,000 this week to be with his children
that he would make the same commitment to protect America's children
and end the violence of abortion."
