Charmaine Yoest Quoted in The Washington Post, USA TODAY and Politico

USA TODAY interviews Charmaine Yoest in Abortion fight is ‘enduring divide,’ by Joan Biskupic,

“Judge Sotomayor represents the future of the Supreme Court,” says Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life, which would like to win reversal of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that made abortion legal nationwide. Yoest testified against Sotomayor, who would be President Obama’s first appointment and the first Hispanic justice.

As a lower court judge, Sotomayor never ruled on abortion rights and, like nominees before her, she declined to tell senators her position on the issue.

Yoest said activists against abortion are mobilizing tens of thousands of people to urge members of Congress to ensure that any new health care law excludes the abortion procedure, so insurance companies would not be required to pay for it and no government funds would go toward it. (Law dating to the 1970s prohibits the use of federal Medicaid funds for abortion except in cases of rape, incest or when the woman’s life is endangered.)

William Wan writes Abortion Foes Rally Online Against Health Care Reform in The Washington Post,

Abortion foes—including some leaders among religious conservatives—put on a massive webcast last night aimed at rallying anti-abortion forces against current health care reform bills in Congress…

Charmaine Yoest, [Ph.D.] president of Americans United for Life, equates the health care plan to “a stealth agenda to impose FOCA [the Freedom of Choice Act favoring abortion rights].”

Thank you (foot)notes:

Jill Stanek questions the objectivity of the abortion-friendly USA TODAY, “To relegate the debate over abortion as one of “religious differences” is to say it is esoteric and unsolvable.”

Pro-life webcast gathers 36,000.
