UPDATE: Stop the Government from turning VA hospitals into illegal Abortion Clinics
Your tax dollars could pay for abortions for veterans!
The U.S. Senate will be voting soon on whether to overturn a recent Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA) rule that provides taxpayer funded abortions on-demand for veterans, and their spouses and kids. For decades, the law has stopped the VA from providing abortions in its health care benefits packages. Last September, the VA violated this law, as well as long-standing practices preventing taxpayer funding for elective abortion, and issued a regulation to provide such abortions – even in States where they’re now illegal. Further, the rule does not protect the conscience rights of workers who could be forced to participate in abortions. The U.S. Senate will vote soon to overturn the VA’s rule, and your senators need to hear from you. Please tell them to not turn VA hospitals into illegal abortion clinics. Women -- especially our heroes in need of care -- and their children deserve better.
Messages in your own words can be more effective. Please consider customizing with your own story.On Tuesday, the USCCB sent a letter to Congress opposing the VA rule, which may be read here. To learn more about how the VA rule has these effects and the USCCB’s response, you may view our original regulatory comment letter to the VA here.
Watch The Matter of Life FREE Online
Celebrate the sanctity of human life by watching the award-winning film, The Matter of Life, now available for FREE online. January, the National Sanctity of Human Life month, was set aside as a response to the Roe v. Wade ruling and to remember the lives of unborn children. We invite you to share the pivotal message of the importance of human lives by offering you this powerful film for FREE in this online event. As seen in theaters nationwide, The Matter of Life is an award-winning film that cuts through the angry rhetoric and divisiveness about the issue of abortion and presents a message that goes beyond pro-life and pro-abortion arguments. It forces us to ask the question: Are the unborn one of us?
Featuring the stories of women, former abortion clinic workers, historians, religious workers, pro-life atheists, and now featuring a brand-new post-Roe v. Wade update, The Matter of Life stresses entering this conversation with understanding, love, and support. Doing so is critical to save the lives of the unborn and to care for the women who carry them. More than ever, it is important for everyone to know where they stand on abortion and why so we can enter into this time in our culture with clarity, compassion, and understanding.
There is no better time to arm yourself with knowledge about this contested issue. It is time to join together as God’s people—as those who are called to be like Jesus—and help lovingly bring to light the protection of our unborn.
