AUL: Stupak deal “a tragedy for America”
Dr. Charmaine Yoest, President and CEO of Americans United for Life Action, has responded to the Stupak deal with the following statement:
This deal to pass the largest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade is a tragedy for America. We believe that Mr. Stupak’s choice to succumb to the intense pressure of the last week has resulted in his endorsement of a charade that does not even begin to address the anti-life provisions in this legislation. The American people do not support taxpayer funding of abortion and Speaker Pelosi and the President have undermined representative democracy by working to pass this legislation with this unprecedented contortion of the legislative process.
The AUL has herewith lost whatever credibility it still had as a nonpartisan prolife organization.
