Pro-life advocates hoping to ensure that abortion is not furthered in proposed health care legislation are planning a campaign of public prayer vigils, rallies, lobbying and demonstrations urging “Abortion is Not Health Care.”The campaign is scheduled to begin on September 12, with a large rally and 28 hours of prayer beginning September 13 on the West Lawn of the Capitol in Washington, D.C. According to a press release from the campaign, it is being organized by the Christian Defense Coalition and other national pro-life organizations.Campaign goals include ensuring that taxpayer money is not used to pay for abortion and that conscience protections are maintained for healthcare providers who decline to perform abortions. Organizers also hope to prevent federal mandates which require health plans to cover abortions and to prevent the invalidation of state laws restricting abortions.Further, they insist that Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the U.S., should never become an “essential community health provider.”

Abortion Is NOT Health Care
Abortion is NOT health care. A simple enough fact, unless you don't understand what abortion is or deny that the babies are human. The sad reality is that these kind of facts need ad campaigns to teach such common-sense truths.
