GAA: Abortion proponents call this a “war on women”

Grassroots Action Alert May 9, 2011
In This Issue: 

1. Is this a “war on women?”
2. Congressional “spending” problem
3. The GOP Presidential Candidate Debate

1. Abortions groups say it’s a “war on women”

From our Friends at Concerned Women for America (CWA)

Last week the House of Representatives passed a crucial pro-life bill — and abortion groups exploded almost immediately in anger.

Nancy Keenan, the president of NARAL Pro-Choice America called it the Republican “War on Women.”

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also assailed the bill, calling it “radical assault” on women’s choice.

The head of the Center for Reproductive Rights called it an “attack on women’s health and rights.”

What does the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (H.R. 3.) do? It simply stops taxpayers from being forced to pay for abortions while protecting the conscience rights for medical professionals who do not support abortion. And for this, the pro-abortion leaders are calling the bill a “war on women,” a “radical assault,” and an “attack!”

Concerned Women for America wants to rally an additional 25,000 signers to their “No Taxpayer Funds For Abortion” petition before the next key votes take place on this issue in the Senate.

CWA is calling on citizens to “speak up,” or pro-abortion groups will succeed in framing this debate as a “war on women” when in fact this is all about GETTING THE GOVERNMENT OUT OF THE ABORTION BUSINESS!”

ACTION: If you want to get the government out of the abortion business, please go here now and sign CWA’s crucial petition.

2. Stop out-of-control federal spending

With vast differences in starting viewpoints between many Democrats and Republicans on how to resolve the debt ceiling crisis, the House and Senate are both engaged in finding common ground solutions. Last week, Vice President Joe Biden held his first meeting with a bipartisan Congressional group formed to address the issue. The Senate’s “Gang of Six,” commissioned months ago, is also tasked with finding solutions. Together these groups comprise the “Lucky 13” who could decide the next steps in the spending debate.

The raging debate in both Congress and the public is over whether or not to raise the debt ceiling — and if so, by how much. By next Tuesday, the federal government is expected to reach its $14.3 trillion debt limit, but Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said that by employing “extraordinary measures,” he could buy more time, possibly until August.

A large majority of Americans are fed up with out-of-control federal spending and realize this is a spending problem, not an income problem. Will the “Lucky 13” respond to the voice of grassroots Americans or continue to lead America on a path to financial bankruptcy?

ACTION: Grassfire Nation will be delivering petitions later this week to the “Lucky 13” on behalf of citizens who are concerned about out-of-control government spending. Click here to sign a petition and tell Congress, “I Oppose Raising the Debt Ceiling.”

3. Who won the GOP Presidential Candidate debate?
Five GOP presidential candidates met Thursday evening, sans several of the “top” contenders, in the first debate of the 2012 campaign season, including: Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, former Sen. Rick Santorum (PA), Rep. Ron Paul (TX), former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson and talk radio host Herman Cain.

The debate featured a heavy focus on foreign policy, the recent killing of Bin Laden and displeasure with the Obama presidency.

Was the debate hurt by the absence of the “bigger name” candidates?  Who do you believe won the debate?
