Pro-Life Action League Tells Obama, “Abortion Is Not Health Care”: Group to Protest Health Care Speech at A.M.A. Meeting

“President Obama has declared his intention to reduce abortion. Now he is seeking support from the American Medical Association for his health care plan, and we’re calling on him to remember that commitment,” said Eric Scheidler, Communications Director of the Pro-Life Action League. “Our message is simple: Abortion is not health care.” Scheidler’s group will hold a pro-life rally outside the Hyatt Regency in Chicago starting at 10:30 a.m. Monday, June 15, where Obama will speak on his health care plan to A.M.A. delegates. In his commencement address at Notre Dame, Obama called for “common ground” on the abortion issue, and stated his desire to reduce abortion, which he called a “heart-wrenching decision.”
