Roundup: Editorial Calls on Anti-Choice Advocates to Stop eBay Auction

Jodi Jacobson editorial calls for end to eBay auction for Roeder. Stupak continues to threaten health reform over abortion care in private plans. Editorial Calls for Stop to eBay Auction for Roeder

An editorial today at calls on eBay to reject a proposed auction by anti-choice extremists to raise money for the defense of Scott Roeder, (he editorial mistakenly identifies "Dennis" Roeder), the man who murdered Dr. George Tiller in his church on May 31st of this year.

But, the editorial goes on to say, those who call themselves "pro-life" must also be vocal in opposing this auction. "The onus for stopping extremism shouldn’t rest with an Internet service," says the editorial.

people hatching this plan make up a small but destructive fringe of the
anti-abortion movement. This is the time for ethical opponents of
abortion, including churches, to loudly denounce violence as a means of
achieving an end.

Stupak Continues to Threaten Health Reform Over Abortion Care

Congressman Bart Stupak (D-MI) continues to threaten to derail health reform unless the legislation passed by Congress explicitly denies women’s rights to private insurance coverage for abortion care, which more than three-fourths of those covered by private insurance currently have.

Medical News Today reports that:

[A]ntiabortion-rights House Democrats are pushing the conversation, despite the inclusion of a compromise amendment
specifying that no federal funds can be used to pay for abortion
coverage and that abortion care must be financed with private premiums,
CongressDaily reports (Hunt, CongressDaily,
10/26). On Friday, Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.), who is leading
antiabortion-coverage efforts in the House, said about 40 House
Democrats are prepared to block the bill from reaching the floor unless
he is allowed to introduce a stand-alone amendment further restricting
abortion coverage, The Hill‘s "Blog Briefing Room" reports.
