Abortion is Not Healthcare says Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver

WASHINGTON, ( -- Without an explicit exclusion for abortion, the proposed Senate healthcare bill will fund abortion. The majority of Americans do not support abortion on demand and do not want to fund the destruction of innocent human life. Mathew Staver, Founder of Liberty Counsel and Dean of Liberty University School of Law, said: "It is a moral imperative to protect human life. As a society treats the most vulnerable among us in the womb, it will similarly treat the aged and the ill. Any healthcare policy or proposal must protect those with debilitating or terminal illness and the elderly."

Human life is sacred, because we are made in the image of God and are endowed by our Creator with the inalienable right to life. Government must protect human life.

Staver continued, "Life, no matter how young, is not expendable and, no matter how ill or aged, is not to be weighed on a cost-benefit scale."

Rather than disregard life and restrict our freedom with bureaucracy and endless paperwork, good government policy should explore creative solutions to address the true number of uninsured, not an inflated political number. The solutions are as many as we dare to dream, but federal funding of abortion, combined with government control and bureaucracy, is not the answer. No matter the solution, any healthcare proposal that destroys our freedom and does not protect human life from conception to natural death is unacceptable.

The 2,074-page Senate bill funds abortions, mandates coverage even for those who do not want it, imposes new taxes, and establishes a government- directed system that will bankrupt the country and kill the sputtering economy. The House and the Senate bills will ration healthcare.

Staver concluded, "Any healthcare bill that funds abortion is dead on arrival. If those promoting government-directed healthcare truly cared about the uninsured, they would begin by protecting the most vulnerable among us - preborn children."
