Thumbs down Re: Contact Democrat Ben Nelson and try to persude him life of innocent children are worth saving

UPDATE!!!!

Senator Ben Nelson announced today that he will become the crucial 60th vote that Democrats need to pass a government-run health care bill. Nelson has been holding out because of the massive abortion funding in the bill, but said today he will give the measure his support.Nelson outlined his support for the government-run health care bill in a press conference Saturday morning after he reached a deal with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on abortion and other unrelated issues.Under the compromise, Nelson said it prohibits abortion funding in a way that earns his vote."We have an agreement that the plan with not use federal dollars to fund abortions," he said. "I believe we have accomplished that goal. It's clear I wouldn't have voted for this bill without these conditions."The compromise Nelson agreed to with Reid makes it so states could disallow abortion coverage in the new health insurance exchanges.Nelson explained that women using government subsidies to purchase health insurance who want to purchase abortions in the states that opt out of the coverage would have to make a separate payment to pay for the abortion. She would pay one payment to the insurer to pay for the policy and a separate payment to pay for abortion coverage. This just isn't good enough. Please contact him and inlighten him of his error.

-- The initial reaction from pro-life organizations and lawmakers to the compromise deal reached by Senate Leader Harry Reid and Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson is not supportive. They say Nelson caved in on his promise to not support the government-run health care bill unless it banned abortion funding.The new compromise doe snot ban abortion funding but merely allows states that don't want to force taxpayers to fund abortions to opt out of doing so. Otherwise, taxpayers would still be forced to finance abortions with government funds.Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, issued a statement blasting the Nelson-Reid proposal.“No back room deal can change the fact that this is a fatally flawed bill. Make no mistake about it, the Reid bill will allow federal tax dollars to be used to fund abortions," he said in a statement sent to LifeNews.com.“It is extremely disappointing that so many Democrats have chosen the wrong side of history and put politics over the will of the American people. My colleagues and I will continue to do all that we can to ensure the American people have enough time to know what is in this bill, and we will do everything in our power to stop it,” Cornyn, who is pro-life, added.Sen. Tom Coburn, a pro-life doctor and Republican, agrees.He said it is “absolutely fictitious” that the Nelson-Reid language bans abortion funding. “The negotiations, whoever did them, threw unborn babies under the bus,” Coburn said

Ben Nelson to Run Television Ad Defending Health Care-Abortion CompromiseLincoln, NE (LifeNews.com) -- One day after a new poll showed him tanking with Nebraska voters because of his decision to compromise his long-held pro-life views and become the 60th vote for the pro-abortion health care bill, Sen. Ben Nelson will run a television commercial during a college football bowl game to defend his decision.Nelson will make his case for supporting the Senate government-run health care bill that forces taxpayers to fund abortions and would allow the Obama administration to make insurance companies pay for abortions with taxpayers' premiums.He will air a 30-second television spot during Wednesday night's Holiday Bowl game featuring the University of Nebraska showing him talking directly into the camera."With all the distortions about health care reform, I want you to hear directly from me," the Democratic senator says in the ad, according to the Lincoln Journal Star newspaper. Wearing a more casual open-necked shirt and sweater, Nelson will say during the Nebraska-University of Arizona football game: "I listened to you and took a common-sense approach to improve the bill."
