Patrick Mahoney of the Christian Defense Coalition announces that they are heading up to Martha’s Vineyard to conduct protests during President Obama’s vacation:
The activists will be holding large banners saying “Abortion is Not Health Care” and “President Obama human rights begin in the womb… Protect America’s children.”
The events on Martha’s Vineyard are part of a national campaign called “Abortion is Not Health Care” sponsored by the Christian Defense Coalition, Operation Rescue, Expectant Mother Care and the Coalition for Life.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition, states,
“We are traveling to Martha’s Vineyard to publicly remind the President that abortion is not health care and not one penny of public monies should be spent on paying for abortions.
“We think it is important during this national debate on health care, that President Obama embrace social justice and human rights for all. We do not want the President to turn health care, which is supposed to heal and bring comfort to those in need, into something that destroys and diminishes innocent human life.
“Our activities will remind President Obama there is no vacation from human rights, social justice and the truth.
