A message from MRL president Pam Fichter via email today:
I received a call this morning from National Right to Life requesting our help. Oklahoma Congressman Boren is asking for signatures on a letter he will send to Speaker Pelosi that states that those signing will not support any health care reform bill that includes funding for abortion. Congressman Skelton has not signed this letter. (He did sign a similar letter in 1994.)
Please call Congressman Skelton at 202-225-2876, and ask him to sign Congressman Boren’s letter to Speaker Pelosi stating that he will not support health care legislation that includes funding for abortion.
The deadline for signatures is tomorrow (6/24/09) afternoon. You can also send him an e-mail at:
Please act now.
Also, please forward this message to anyone you know who also lives in this district. I would appreciate it if you would copy me when you forward the message. That will help us build a targeted e-mail data base to use when contacting people in this district.
Thanks and God bless –
