Pro-life leader warns congressmen of ‘being out of step' with constitutents

.- Following the approval of the Pitts-Stupak Amendment to H.R. 3962 on Saturday, Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser praised Congress for siding "with the resounding majority of citizens opposed to government funding of abortion," and urged congressmen to listen to their constituents.

On Saturday evening the House of Representatives approved the Pitts-Stupak amendment to H.R. 3962 in a vote of 240-194. The Stupak amendment would prevent insurance plans sold in the individual and small group market from covering elective abortion.

Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser offered her comments Saturday night thanking those who voted "to honor the American legacy of protecting citizens’ conscience from conscription into activity to which most are morally opposed."

"Congress has sided with the resounding majority of citizens opposed to government funding of abortion," she said adding that those in support of tax-payer funder abortion "will now have some explaining to do back home, before voters head to the ballot box in 2010."

"If there’s one thing many members of Congress learned from Tuesday’s elections, it’s the danger of being out of step with your constituents.  Votes do have consequences, and the recent tensions over health care reform should drive that message home," she concluded.
