Statewide Campaign Against Tax-Funded Abortion Launched in California

RIVERSIDE, Calif., (christiansunite.com) -- Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust announced they will be organizing with pro-lifers throughout California to campaign against tax-funded abortion in Obama's Healthcare Reform bill. The campaign, which starts Thursday, Aug. 20th, will feature demonstrations and protests in cities across California, asking elected officials to guarantee that tax-funded abortion will specifically be excluded from the bill. Currently the Healthcare Reform bill includes wording that will allow for tax money to pay for abortion as "reproductive care."

"Abortion is not health care," said Jeff White, founder of Survivors, "And the majority of Americans don't want to pay for it." He cites a recent Zogby poll which indicates that 71% of those polled did not want tax money paying for abortions.

Last week Survivors attended a town hall meeting in Alhambra, CA hosted by Rep. Adam Schiff. After learning that questions were pre-screened by a moderator, the Survivors were forced to shout their questions to the panel. One Survivor was punched and choked by members of the audience, and all of them were removed by police. A video of the event is available at www.youtube.com/watch?v=9SA3-Uq6-ao.

"Clearly questions about abortion are not welcome at town hall meetings," remarked Shara Guengrich, a Survivors activist at the Alhambra meeting. "If we are not allowed to ask about abortion at town hall meetings the next logical step is to take to the streets."

The protests, which will take place Thursday, Aug. 20th - Saturday, Aug. 22nd will be the beginning of a larger campaign designed to bring light to the inclusion of tax-funded abortion in the Healthcare Reform bill.

"It all comes down to the fact that congress wants us to pay for the destruction of preborn life," commented Jeff White, "And this is something Americans do not want to do. We will do everything in our power to make sure congress votes based on the will of the people."
