Progressive pro-lifers to GOP: End shut-down

October 7, 2013

Don’t squirm into an elephant costume if you’re pro-life on abortionDemocrats For Life of America repeatedly demonstrates that pro-life means whole-life: we’re for the welfare of both the mother and the child and we don’t wag our fingers at scientists.  We campaign for health care for the needy, which means the current government shut-down must end.  Kristen Day, the organization’s executive director, explains why in the following statement:

As individuals who support and endorse a whole life philosophy, we strongly urge the Republicans in the House – particularly those who share our commitment to the unborn – to end the budget showdown over the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and work toward a budget that protects the sanctity of life at all levels.

Democrats for Life of America applauds the implementation of the (ACA).  Under the ACA, people with debilitating diseases-once considered uninsurable due to pre-existing conditions-can now receive life-saving health coverage.  Pregnant women are receiving essential care. And those who could not afford insurance are now eligible for preventive care that once was out of reach.

At the same time, we must point out that the ongoing shutdown of the federal government deprives many pregnant women of the WIC vouchers that ensure they get enough milk, protein, vegetables, and fruit to ensure the health of their unborn children.  And cancer patients-many of whom are children-have been blocked from receiving time-sensitive and potentially life-saving care at National Institutes of Health facilities.

We deplore the ongoing shutdown of the federal government, which is the result of one chamber’s unilateral attempt to accomplish through the budget process a feat for which the Constitution prescribes only legislation passed by both houses and approved by the President: the repeal of a duly passed law.
