A.L.L LEADER JUDIE BROWN: STOP SEEKING ABORTION COMPROMISE; OPPOSE ENTIRE BILL

Judie Brown, president of the American Life League, issued the following statement upon hearing news Sen. Bob Casey is set to introduce “compromise” legislation on abortion as part of the Senate health care reform bill: “We call on the leaders of the pro-life movement, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and Catholic members of Congress to stop fighting to maintain the abortion status quo, which treats human beings as property; to stand firm against band-aid compromises; and to oppose the entire deplorable health care reform bill. We must not forget this health care reform bill denies justice to all and abrogates the rights of human beings to function with government in a supporting role. Instead, this bill perverts the role of government by making it dictatorial, arbitrary and empowered to end the lives of innocent human beings as a cost-saving measure.”
