WASHINGTON, ( -- The purpose of this advisory is to alert you to a number of new documents available on the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC) website, dealing with the abortion-related implications of the health-care restructuring bills that are being pushed by the White House. The new resources include the following:

-- A new and detailed NRLC memorandum that documents the abortion-related problems with the two bills that President Obama and the White House are pushing: Senator Kennedy's bill (as yet unnumbered) and the House Democratic leadership bill, H.R. 3200. This analysis contains numerous citations to primary sources. It includes an examination of the Capps Amendment, a "phony compromise" that was written by hard-core pro-abortion lawmakers and adopted over pro-life objections in one House committee on July 30. Among other objectionable elements, the Capps Amendment explicitly authorizes coverage of all elective abortions in the proposed new government health insurance program (the "public option"). This memo, dated August 13, 2009, can be viewed or downloaded at (PDF format).

-- A one-page summary of abortion-related problems with the bills at

-- An August 5, 2009, Associated Press story, "Government insurance would allow coverage for abortion," by Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar, here.

-- A detailed update on the current state of the debate in Congress, sent to NRLC affiliates and supporters nationwide on August 7 in the form of a page 1 article in the National Right to Life News. This article can be viewed in your web browser at

-- A special webpage set up by NRLC to highlight the pro-abortion activities of Congressman Tim Ryan (D- Oh.), who impersonates a pro-life lawmaker in the media in order to undercut the efforts of the real pro- life lawmakers of both parties at

-- A new letter sent to members of the U.S. House by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on August 11, urging the lawmakers to vote against the "rule" -- the procedural bridge by which H.R. 3200 would be brought to the House floor in September -- unless the rule allows consideration of amendments to remove the pro-abortion components from the bill.
