LYNCH AND NEAL VOTE RIGHT ON ABORTION! THANKS TO YOU!
Congressmen Stephen Lynch and Richard Neal were among the 64 Democrats who voted for the Stupak Amendment to restrict abortion funding in the House version of the health care bill.
You are directly responsible! You wrote the letters, sent the emails, the articles, and the FAXes. Most of all, you called and called and called!!!!
Your support also made it possible for Mass. Citizens to put ads on radio stations WRKO in Boston, WTAG in Worcester, and WHYN in Springfield, as well as newspaper ads. You will be interested to know that WBZ radio in Boston refused our ads during the last few days. We will be letting you know more about that.
We are most grateful to Congressmen Lynch and Neal for voting against abortion funding and to you for urging them to do so!
As you know, this is another beginning, not the end. The Senate still has to debate and vote on their version. The vote may take place after the New Year. If the Senate passes a bill, the two bills will go to Conference Committee and each house will have to vote again on the bill that comes out of Conference. That gives us a lot of places to stop it.
Of course, they are hoping that we will wear down. We have shown them once that we are vigilant and we will show them as often as necessary!
