Americans United for Life- Healthcare Snowstorm Brewing...


for Life


Here in the Washington, DC area, we have found ourselves in the midst of a storm some around here have called the "snowpocalypse." It's been difficult to get around and today we have even more snow on the way. Well, with every difficulty, there is always a hidden blessing.

Partly because of the snow, nearly 107 million people tuned in to watch the Super Bowl – making it the most watched TV program in US history.

And, thanks to the vision of our friends at Focus on the Family, 107 million Americans had the opportunity to view the much-anticipated Tebow commercial. When I saw the ad, I had the same reaction I am guessing you had – I couldn't believe how much controversy had been created by the pro-abortion groups. This ad was an understated and appropriate celebration of life, and I am personally grateful to Focus on the Family.

I want to thank you for joining the Facebook campaign "Support Tebow's Super Bowl Ad", which AUL Action created in partnership with LifeNews.com, as the pro-abortion lobby worked overtime to prevent the commercial from airing. A stunning 260,000 of you signed up to say "yes" to free speech and "no" to censorship. AUL Action's effort was profiled in The Washington Examiner, The New York Times, USA Today, The Los Angeles Times, and on numerous social media sites like Mashable.

Thank you for your overwhelming show of support.

Finally, as we anticipate today's latest snowstorm in Washington, DC, there is a political storm brewing here. I am sure you have heard that the Administration and leaders in Congress are signaling that they want to launch a new, bi-partisan effort to pass healthcare reform legislation. Unfortunately, it seems this new effort may simply be an attempt to find another way to push for the same old, pro-abortion health care bill.

A health care bill that includes public funding for abortion is unacceptable, no matter how you repackage and remarket it to the American people. Our team is working around the clock to make sure that we can provide you – and our leaders on Capitol Hill – with the very best information and analysis on health care and abortion as this new situation develops.

Thank you for all that you continue to do for Life.

For Life,
