We Won (So far)

The pro-life Democrats forced the Speaker to include restrictions against abortion in the health care reform bill. Here is the story link (thanks for an early tip from Rhode Island). I sent in my email to my local Congressman on Friday. You should still send in yours because this wrangle is not over by any means. The matter now goes to the Senate. Go to this Bishops' Conference link and email your congressional people in the House and the Senate. The link gives you suggested, updated language to use in your message. You can also look up the names of your local representative and Senators at a "Contact Your Congressperson" link at the top. Many thanks for the strong leadership on this issue from our bishops.
