New leadership may be on the way to Washington, but the Senate still remains under the control of Harry Reid and his anti-life coalition. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood stands ready to cash-in some political favors in the next couple of weeks. With taxpayer-funded abortion on the ropes, anti-life lobbyists are scrambling to secure new forms of government funding. And military bases are their top target for expanding taxpayer-funded abortion.
Here's the situation: hidden within this year's Defense Authorization Bill is an amendment allowing military clinics to conduct abortions using your tax dollars. Written by outgoing Democrat Senator Roland Burris, this amendment decimates commonsense pro-life policy and allows military personnel to perform elective abortions in military facilities.
Simply put, the Burris amendment diverts limited resources to elective abortions that should instead be devoted to healing and protecting members of our armed services.
