The group, known as The Pray in Jesus Name Project, is asking supporters to contact DFL Rep. Jim Oberstar and ask him to oppose the Senate health care bill. Several anti-abortion groups say the abortion language in the Senate deal isn't strong enough and are lobbying to defeat it.
The group, which sent the e-mail through Conservative Human Events e-mail list, is telling supporters that it will do the astro-turf lobbying on behalf of those who oppose the Senate bill:
Please select, sign, and WE WILL FAX your petition automatically to all 52 "Blue-Dog" House Democrats and/or all 100 Senators, right away (saving you hours of labor!) We've already sent approximately 310,000 faxes, can you help us reach 350,000?
GLIMMER OF HOPE? JUST A FEW OF THESE 37 CONGRESSMAN COULD STOP REID'S "HEALTH" CARE ENTIRELY, BUT ONLY IF WE TAKE ACTION NOW.
Despite the 60-40 vote in the Senate, we only need a handful of "Blue-Dog" House votes, and we can stop Harry Reid's "Health" Care bill entirely. Now that Sen. Ben Nelson has compromised and funded abortion, Congressman Bart Stupak (D-MI) is trying to lead 36 supposedly moderate democrats (and 1 Republican) against Reid's Obamacare, and against abortion funding. But Stupak needs your help. We've identified 37 moderates (names below) who voted WITH STUPAK to reduce abortion funding, but then also voted WITH PELOSI to pass socialism in H.R. 3692. We need a handful of these to switch votes and stand firm against Harry Reid's pro-abortion amendment to H.R. 3590. If they stand firm against abortion, the entire socialist health care bill can be stopped in its tracks.
DFL Rep. Jim Oberstar, a Democrat opposed to legalized abortion, is one of those the group is targeting.
I'm waiting for a response from Oberstar's office to see if it will have an impact on his vote.
Anti abortion people need to mind their own business! they are a bunch a lunatics!
Rep. Oberstar is prolife, but I don't think I would put him in the Blue Dog group.
