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 for Life.
 
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states,
 
"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 all.  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 him 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."
