AFA of PA ACTION ALERT
March 9, 2010
Issues (check corresponding number in ‘Details’ and ‘Action’ Sections)
1.) Congressman Patrick Murphy is Doing What?
2.) Senator Robert Casey is Doing What??
3.) Health Care Vote?
1.) On March 13 the Human Rights Campaign, the Washington, D.C.-based homosexual lobby group will hold its Philadelphia Regional Gala Dinner at the Hyatt Regency Philadelphia, 201 S. Columbus Blvd. Congressman Patrick Murphy is scheduled to be the keynote speaker. Remember Congressman Murphy has become a ‘hero’ to homosexual activists as he is the primary sponsor of HR 1283 which would allow open homosexuals and bisexuals to serve in the military.
2.) And along those lines, our “pro-life’ and “pro-family” Senator Bob Casey will be one of the Honorary Dinner Chairs at Equality Forum’s International Equality Dinner at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia on May 1st. This dinner is part of Equality Forum’s annual event that pushes for the normalization of the homosexual lifestyle in Pennsylvania and beyond.
3.) Monday President Obama was in the Philadelphia area once again making his pitch for “health care reform.” He was met with between 200 and 300 who did not agree with him. There are indications that the House may vote on so-called health care reform by the end of this week. Remember this bill still contains funding for abortion. Congressman Bart Stupak is beginning to say that he has promises that even if the bill passes with abortion funding, a later bill will be introduced to remove it. Can we really trust Nancy Pelosi to bring such a bill forward for a vote after the pro-abortion folks get an expansion of abortion funding passed? I don’t think so!
1.) To express your concern about Congressman Patrick Murphy speaking at the Human Rights Campaign dinner and sponsorship of HR 1283, call his DC office at (202) 225-4276 or his district offices at (215) 348-1194 (Doylestown) or (215) 826-1963 (Bristol). If you live in the 8th Congressional District, you can also e-mail him by clicking here.
2.) Senator Casey’s actions continue to show how anti-life and anti-family he really is. If you are concerned about his participation in Equality Forum’s International Equality Dinner on May 1st, please contact and ask him to reconsider his participation. Click here for contact info.
3.) The language of the health care bill is not complete, but it appears that they will use most of the language in the Senate bill (abortion funding and all) with a few additions. Contact your Congressman and ask him or her to vote ‘no’ on any ‘health care reform bill’ that comes up for a vote. Click here for contact information.
