Staunchly anti-choice politicians and far-right groups like the Family Research Council and Concerned Women for America are shamefully claiming that health-care reform will require "an abortion mandate." Sadly, the lies are taking hold and women could pay the price.

Our anti-choice opponents are flooding the airwaves and blogosphere with outrageous distortions and outright lies about health-care reform.

This week, CNN’s "American Morning" showed a town hall meeting in Texas where crowds voiced fears that health-care reform will "fund abortions"— and the reporters didn't correct the distortion.1 Our opponents are getting media attention with shocking protests which we’ve all seen at town hall meetings and other venues:

Common case of protect the fetus, who gives a rat's ass when it's born. Most of the crazy pro-lifers are also Christian extremists, from what I have observed. And correct me if I'm wrong but don't they believe that children are born in sin? Which by the way I have never understood that. How can a baby be sinful? Not putting down Christianity but maybe that has something to do with why they care more for a cluster of cells than for living, breathing humans... JMO.
