Pro-Life Leaders to Set Up Large Display on the West Lawn of the United States Capitol Building to Oppose Taxpayer Funded Abortions in Health Care Reform

WASHINGTON, ( -- Groups to set up 100 foot image of the number 71 on the Capitol grounds this Friday, October 2 at 12:00 P.M.

The number 71 represents the percentage of people in a national Zogby poll that oppose taxpayer funded abortions.

The display is to remind lawmakers to listen to the voice and wisdom of the American people and embrace human rights and social justice.

The display is part of a national campaign organized by the Christian Defense Coalition called "Abortion is Not Health Care" which has sponsored a series of demonstrations, prayer vigils and rallies on Capitol Hill over the past several months to speak out against taxpayer funded abortions.

There will be a news conference on Friday, October 2, at 12:00 P.M. to discuss health care reform and abortion on the west lawn of the Capitol.

Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states, "Americans intuitively know that abortion is not health care. They understand that health care should bring compassion, mercy and healing to those in need not violence and despair.

"We are displaying this large 71 on the lawn of the Capitol to remind lawmakers to listen to the voice and wisdom of the American people and embrace human rights and social justice.

"It would be tragic for Congress to force the American faith community to pay for the killing of innocent children through their tax dollars. The pro-life community will continue to be a loud and prophetic voice speaking out against abortion in health care during this entire debate."

Brandi Swindell, Founder of Generation Life and Director of Stanton Health Care, adds

"This display of 71 on the lawn of the United States Capitol is a visual reminder of what the American people already know and embrace. That is, abortion is not health care and public monies should never be used to crush human rights and diminish women.

"It is our hope over the next several weeks that Congress will listen to the American people and ensure that not one penny of taxpayer money will be used to pay for abortions."
