Pro-life group thanks Snyder
Retiring U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder got a thank-you letter today from a pro-life group.
Arkansas Right to Life members, pictured here outside Snyder’s Little Rock office, delivered a letter thanking Snyder for the vote in November in favor of the Stupak-Pitts Amendment to the House health care bill, which would prohibit federal dollars from being used on insurance plans that cover abortion.
The group also asked Snyder to vote against the Senate health care bill, which would prohibit the use of federal dollars on abortion coverage but would allow federal money to be spent on other types of coverage under plans that also cover abortion.
Customers who want abortion coverage would have to use only private money for that part of their policy.
The Senate bill is “the most pro-abortion single piece of legislation since Roe v. Wade,” the group said in the letter.
