Urge Your Congressman to Vote for Pro-Life Health Care Bill!

by Maria Gallagher, Legislative/PAC Director
gallagher@paprolife.org

I am forwarding to you an urgent message from National Right to Life, encouraging you to call your Congressman and urge him to vote "yes" on the pro-life health care bill, H.R. 1628, which may be voted on Thursday. You can reach your Congressman through the Capitol switchboard at 202-224-3121. If you don't know who your Congressman is, click here.
 
The Department of Federal Legislation (of National Right to Life) requests that you call your Representative today and urge him to vote for H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act of 2017.  This should be a TOP priority as the bill is likely to come up for a vote TOMORROW, Thursday March 23rd.   

This legislation would eliminate multiple abortion-subsidizing and abortion-expanding provisions of the Obama Health Care law or the PPACA. The PPACA contains multiple provisions authorizing federal subsidies for abortion and abortion-expanding regulatory mandates.  A 2014 GAO report revealed that over 1,000 federally subsidized plans nationwide were covering elective abortion. H.R. 1628 would repeal the provisions of law that created this system, and prohibit any future federal tax credits from subsidizing the purchase of plans that cover elective abortion, thereby restoring the longstanding principles of the Hyde Amendment with respect to federally funded health coverage.

We are supporting H.R. 1628 because it:
1)    prevents credits from  being used for plans that pay for abortions
2)    eliminates about 85% of federal PP funding for the next year.
3)    preserves non-taxed employer  provided health plans and
4)    postpones the "Cadillac tax" until 2026
Our position applies only to the current House language.  If the bill is altered in a way adverse to pro-life interests, our position will be reevaluated.

Thank you for making these critical calls!
