Urge representatives to vote against Senate bill Print
Letters to the editor
Thursday, Mar. 11, 2010 -- 1:00 AM

To the editor:

You are urgently needed to contact Representative Ron Kind or Tammy Baldwin and urge them to vote against H.R. 3590, the Senate version of health care reform.  This bill contains a huge expansion of abortion by using taxpayer funds to pay for health care premium subsidies and to pay for abortions in Community Health Centers.

In addition, there are no adequate conscience protections for health care professionals and facilities that do not want to participate in abortions.

Cuts in Medicare alone will inevitably result in rationing for older Americans.

A vote is expected in the House of Representatives on Thursday, March 18.   Please contact Rep. Kind immediately at 608-782-2558 (La Crosse office) or  715-831-9214 (Eau Claire office).  Contact Rep. Baldwin at 608-258-9800. Urge them to vote NO on H.R. 3590. Thank you.
