A Legislative Alert from the Susan B. Anthony List Blog

A Legislative Alert from the Susan B. Anthony List Blog Visit:Home-Susan B. Anthony List : This week the Senate Finance Committee began its “mark-up” or amendment-offering process for Senator Baucus proposed health care legislation. Since its release last week, Sen. Baucus’ plan has gone through many changes. Of the 564 amendments proposed by members of the Senate Finance Committee, several are pro-life amendments and were offered up by Senators Enzi (R-Wyoming) and Hatch (R-Utah). Many of their amendments are designed to explicitly ban federal dollars from going to abortion procedures, prohibit public and private insurance plans that would mandate abortion, protect state laws prohibiting abortion, as well as ensure conscience protections for pro-life doctors and nurses.

Today, after intense debate, the Senate Finance Committee adjourned without voting on any of the proposed pro-life amendments. Voting has instead been postponed for the weekend and will resume this upcoming Tuesday, September 29, 2009. In the meantime, pro-life legislators like Enzi and Hatch are expected to devote all of their efforts towards raising support for their amendments amongst committee members.

The offering and acceptance of pro-life amendments to Senator Baucus’ health care bill is the first step toward ensuring that federal tax dollars do not go to the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade. Please contact your senators and tell them to stand with Senator’s Enzi and Hatch. Abortion is not health care!

If your Senator is a member of the Senate Finance Committee, call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202)224-3121 and ask for your senators' office. Tell them to support the amendments of Enzi and Hatch today, Monday, and Tuesday!

Premature Baby Denied Treatment in UK, Dies Two Hours Later -All American Blogger

Recently a twenty-three year old young woman gave birth prematurely to her son. The baby, who was born at 22 weeks gestation was denied any treatment under England's system of universal health care guidelines which routinely deny treatment to babies born before 23 weeks. "Miss Capewell reported doctors refused to even see her son Jayden, who lived for almost two hours without any medical support." The baby was breathing and had a strong heartbeat but medics refused to send him to a special care baby unit" ..."the medical guidelines for Health Service hospitals state that babies should not be given intensive care if they are born at less than 23 weeks.
The guidance, drawn up by the Nuffield Council, is not compulsory but advises doctors that medical intervention for very premature children is not in the best interests of the baby, and is not ’standard practice’." I guess "universal" health care really doesn't care for everyone. Visit:All American Blogger » Premature Baby Denied Treatment in UK, Dies Two Hours Later:

Saturday Afternoon in Washington: Conservatism on the Ascendancy

Rush Limbaugh talks about the Tea Party in Washington D.C.
RUSH: What an event that was on Saturday. In fact, folks, there were more people at that event on Saturday, according to the British press, than there were people who showed up at Obama's immaculation back in January. You will not find that reported anywhere in the State-Controlled Media in this country, but in the UK press, the British press, it's all over the place."Saturday Afternoon in Washington: Conservatism on the Ascendancy:

Operation Rescue- Pro-Life Activist Gunned Down in Cold Blood

"Operation Rescue and the Christian Defense Coalition to hold a press conference in Washington, D.C. today to discuss the murder and other threats against pro-life leaders
Owosso, MI – A pro-life activist gunned down this morning as he peacefully held a picture of a baby with the word “Life” outside a high school in Owosso, Michigan. The victim is Jim Pouillon, a well known activist in the Owosso area and a friend of Operation Rescue.
A suspect was arrested about 45 minutes after the shooting and is now in police custody.
“We are stunned by Jim’s murder. We extend our condolences to the family and share in their grief over his loss. His life was characterized by his love and concern of the vulnerable, and he will be greatly missed,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
“We denounce this senseless act of violence in the strongest terms, and pray that this murderer will be swiftly brought to justice.”
This shooting comes in the wake of hundreds of death threats that have been received by Operation Rescue and other pro-life organizations over the past three months.
Operation Rescue and the Christian Defense Coalition will hold a press conference today in Washington DC to discuss this senseless murder and threats against the pro-life community."

How much will Obamacare Cost? Sept. 9th Speech Transcript

Obama (who has no idea whatsoever about the cost of nationalized health care) promised to reduce the cost of health care from $1.6 trillion to "only" $900 billion in his Sept. 9 whitewash. Of course the real cost of national health care can olny be determined once the sick begin to present themselves to hospitals and health care providers for care. Obama: "Add it all up, and the plan I’m proposing will cost around $900 billion over ten years ..... Most of these costs will be paid for with money already being spent – but spent badly – in the existing health care system." (So Obama does still intend to raid Medicare!)
And in another crystal ball prognostication Obama predicts: "The plan will not add to our deficit. The middle-class will realize greater security, not higher taxes. And if we are able to slow the growth of health care costs by just one-tenth of one percent each year, it will actually reduce the deficit by $4 trillion over the long term."

Tea Party Express in Scranton, September 10th

WOW, we have the infamous Tea Party Express rolling into Scranton PA this Thursday, September 10th at Noon! As seen on TV, this is a fantastic opportunity to get involved and let you voice be heard, and also be seen. No doubt there will be network coverage of the stop in our traditionally blue collar Democrat county.

No matter party affiliation, we need to fight what is unwise and unconstitutional! The X Amendment (Tenth) reads: "Powers not given to the Federal Government are specifically reserved to the states!" It does not get much clearer than that!

Please forward to friends & family. Loading our children with debt, cutting seniors health care via rationing by half a trillion dollars while ten thousand baby boomers enter the system a week will be a disaster! Speak up this Thursday, 9/10/2009 at noon.

IF not us, who. If not now, when?

Pro-Abortion Democrat, Scranton Mayor Chris Dougherty, to Run for Governor

In June, 2009 Mayor of Scranton Chris Dougherty announced his interest in a run for Governor. The Scranton Times recently published a story indicating Mayor Dougherty is pro-abortion. Dougherty stated "'I just believe it's a woman's right to choose,' Mr. Doherty said. 'It's a private matter what they want to do with their lives, and I don't think government or anybody else should interfere with that." The author, Mr. Borys Krawczeniuk, also interviewed Helen Gohsler, President of the Scranton Chapter of Pennsylvanians for Human Life who provided him with "a copy of a proclamation she said Mr. Doherty wrote and signed declaring Sept. 27, 2003, as "Pennsylvanians for Human Life Day" in Scranton "to honor those who fight for that most precious gift of our creator>" Visit: :

Bishop Martino Resigns - Times Leader Reports

Dear Readers: Every few months I drop everything else and write my articles for The Pro-Life Reporter. Almost without fail something big happens. In this case, the resignation og Bishop Joseph Martino of Scranton. Here is a link to the Times Leader article earlier this week. I also hope to be able to share some stories from the Pro-Life Reporter in the upcoming days. Sue Cirba
From the TImes Leader:
"Speaking at a press conference, Martino spoke of the stress he has been under as he made controversial decisions, including the closure of schools and churches – decisions he said have not been embraced by members of the clergy or parishioners.
Martino said the diocese now needs a bishop who is “physically vigorous” to lead it into the future" Visit:TPP:
