.- In reaction to Senate Majority leader Harry Reid's new health care bill, the Family Research Council urged pro-life senators to “denounce abortion funding provisions and make every effort to include the Stupak-Pitts amendment.” In a statement Thursday, FRC President Tony Perkins said that “Sen. Reid's new health bill does not include the Stupak-Pitts amendment that was designed to prevent federal funding for abortion on demand.”

Perkins continued to say that the new senate bill “provides tax credits for private plans that cover abortion-on-demand and strips important conscience protections for providers who refuse to perform elective abortions.”

The FRC President explained that “the Stupak-Pitts amendment adopted with 240 votes in the House would prevent federally funding for abortion,” and further stated that “clearly the straightforward language of (this) amendment is not what Sen. Reid and his pro-abortion colleagues want. Rather, they want government funding of abortion on demand.”

Perkins concluded saying, “Pro-life senators...must denounce the Reid abortion funding provisions and make every effort to include the Stupak-Pitts amendment in the Senate bill in order to prevent the establishment of a government funded abortion program for the first time in over three decades.”
