Senate Filibuster Sought to Prevent Obama’s Abortion Industry Bailout Plans

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Barack Obama has promised he will force taxpayers to fund abortions and a leading pro-life group has launched a new effort to stop it. The Susan B. Anthony List is hoping to build support for a Senate filibuster to stop various moves to fund abortions with public money.
The group calls Obama’s promise to fund abortions and send more tax dollars to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion business, an abortion industry bailout.
Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser tells LifeNews.com that the bailout plans came in the supposed-to-be secret memo the Obama transition team posted on its web site.
“President-elect Barack Obama spoke of finding ‘common ground’ on abortion policy, but abortion advocacy groups clearly see an open door,” she says.
“After a decade of commonsense restrictions on taxpayer funding, the abortion industry thinks it deserves a bailout from Obama,” Dannenfelser continued. “Today the Susan B. Anthony List launched its ‘Stop the Abortion Bailout’ campaign to mobilize thousands of activists across the country.”
Dannenfelser said her group would urge pro-life advocates across the country to contact members of Congress to oppose any move to fund abortions or abortion businesses.
“Americans will send letters to their Senators with the goal of securing the 41 votes necessary to sustain a Senate filibuster of the abortion bailout,” she said.
“We look forward to delivering the votes Senator McConnell needs to ensure our hard-earned taxpayer dollars stay out of abortionists’ coffers, especially since national abortion numbers are already on the decline,” Dannenfelser told LifeNews.com.
The memo calls for one billion dollars in taxpayer funds for international abortion groups like International Planned Parenthood Federation and Marie Stopes International, a British-based abortion business.
It seeks a 133% increase in funding for the Title X program, which funds Planned Parenthood facilities nationwide. Groups call for increasing funds from $300 to $700 million in federal taxpayer funds.
The groups also want to repeal every budgetary rider restricting federal abortion funding, including the long-standing Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the use of federal taxpayer funds for abortion through the Medicaid and Medicare programs.
