FRC's Tony Perkins Calls Closure the "Height of Arrogance"
Baton Rouge, LA - This afternoon, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins attempted to deliver a letter to Senator Mary Landrieu's Baton Rouge office only to be told by a federal marshal that her offices were "closed for the holidays." Over 150 concerned citizens joined Perkins at a rally in front of Senator Landrieu's office to urge the Senator to oppose the government takeover of health care.
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins made the following comments:
"We were stunned to discover why so many phone calls have been unanswered and met with continuous busy signals. As the Senate debates one of the most far reaching pieces of legislation in history, it's shocking that Senator Mary Landrieu would close her office to phone calls and visitors.
"Senator Landrieu sent press aides to offer the Senator's spin on the health care bill but she did not make a staffer available to receive letters or answer phone calls. Senator Landrieu knows that almost two thirds of Louisiana voters oppose the health care overhaul. However, refusing to take their phone calls is insulting and the height of arrogance.
"If Senator Landrieu's office had been open, she would have heard a clear message that we want her to stop this abominable health care bill that will force every American to support Planned Parenthood in the killing of unborn children, saddle families with higher insurance premiums, raise our taxes and deny our parents and grandparents the essential health care they need."
Bring back the gallows.
All who object to killing unborn babies should not be forced by law to go against their conscience. We have the right to refuse to pay even a penny of our taxes to fund abortions.
