FPCWV to Sen. Rockfeller: Protect Innocent Human Life

Key vote to limit taxpayer subsidies for abortions in health care reform expected Wednesday.

CHARLESTON, WV – The Family Policy Council of West Virginia announced Tuesday that it is calling upon West Virginia Senator Jay Rockefeller, chairman of the Senate Health Care Subcommittee on Finance, to protect innocent life in the proposed health care reform package.

“No one – including Sen. Rockefeller – should be allowed to decide that an innocent human life is worthless,” said Jeremy Dys, president and general counsel of the Family Policy Council of West Virginia.  “Though the public option portion of health care reform may be a debatable point for many West Virginians, the protection of innocent human life is not.  By allocating more taxpayer dollars to subsidize abortion activists like Planned Parenthood, Sen. Rockefeller is permitting innocent, pre-born life to be treated like a commodity to advance a political business.”

According to Tuesday’s New York Times, pro-life advocates are gaining broad support in Congress for an amendment designed to preclude government-subsidized abortion services in health care reform.  Yet, according to Dys, instead of working to ensure that the rights of the pre-born are given access to health care, Sen. Rockefeller is aligned with the controversial, liberal website to strengthen his political connections with the most liberal political base in West Virginia.
