Neighborhood protest of Senator’s home will show the truth about the results of taxpayer funded abortion

Omaha, NE – An abortion protest featuring Operation Rescue’s Truth Truck will be conducted on New Year’s Day near the Omaha home of Sen. Ben Nelson.
The protest against Nelson’s scheme for tax-funded abortions will be held on January 1, 2010, in the neighborhood of 9735 Fieldcrest Drive in Omaha, Nebraska, beginning at 2 PM, Central Time.
“The Pro-Life Movement will be making Sen. Nelson aware of our New Year’s Resolution. We will no longer tolerate betrayal of politicians who pretend to be pro-life. If you betray the innocent blood of the babies you have promised to protect, we will vote you out on Election Day. It’s as simple as that,” said Rescue the Heartland’s Larry Donlan, who will be driving Operation Rescue’s Truth Truck, a large paneled vehicle displaying actual photos of aborted babies.
“If Nelson is so bent on forcing us to fund abortions, it is appropriate for us to show him the truth about what abortion does to babies,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
Nelson betrayed the trust of his pro-life constituency by accepting what has become known as the “Cornhusker Kickback” in which he exchanged his vote for abortion funding in the Senate’s health care bill in exchange for financial favors for Nebraska.
Nelson continues to attack those who once avidly supported him by making statements on radio and television ads defending his indefensible act and making further threats if his “deal” is “watered down” by the conference committee that will be charged with reconciling the House and Senate versions.
However, Rep. Bart Stupak has indicated that he and ten other House members will not vote for the final health care bill if it contains Nelson’s abortion funding scheme or any other plan for abortion funding. Thirteen State Attorney Generals have announced that they will sue to prevent the implementation of any health care legislation that contains Nelson’s “Cornhusker Kickback.”
“In the latest poll, 72% of the American people opposed taxpayer funded abortions. That percentage is likely higher in Nelson’s home state. Nebraskans do not want the blood-money that the Democrats promised in exchange for Nelson’s vote approving abortion funding,” said Newman. “When our elected representatives refuse to represent the will of the people in favor of their own interests, then it is time to rebuke them and kick them out.”
