New Whole Life Pro-Life Group Upset by Barbara Mikulski’s Pro-Abortion Facade

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — The producer and primary actor associated with the highly-regarded pro-life movie Bella have founded a new group focused on extending the pro-life ethic from conception to natural death. The new Whole Life group is making its start by tagging pro-abortion Sen. Barbara Mikulski.
Jason Jones, producer of Bella and its leading actor, Eduardo Verastegui are behind the new Whole Life organization
The new organization is a grassroots social justice project that defends all life from the children in Darfur to the elderly to unborn babies threatened by abortion.
Jones told LifeNews.com he is disappointed that, during the debate on abortion funding in the Senate government-run health care bill, Mikulski hijacked the term whole life in her Senate floor speech.
Mikulski, a Maryland Democrat, claimed to advocate for protecting women though the entirety of their lives and assumed that was a pro-life ethic — even though she conveniently left out children in the womb who are threatened by abortion from her counterfeit definition.
Healthcare reform is the most important social justice vote that we will cast in this decade. Universal access to health care is a basic human right," she contended. "This bill is pro-life. Making it a debate about abortion is misguided and wrong These are pro-life principles they are whole life principles.
Jones told LifeNews.com that Mikulski’s comments are off the mark.
Sadly, Sen. Mikulskis statement demonstrates a fundamental misunderstanding on her part about what it means to be Whole Life," Jones said. "Any legislation that compromises the dignity of the human person, including the sanctioning of abortion, as Sen. Mikulskis does, is No Life.
"There is no social justice when the life of an innocent child is taken by abortion; abortion destroys a whole life and protects no one," he continued. The greatest threat to human dignity in the United States is the destruction of human life in the womb, not a lack of health care reform."
The Bella producer added, I challenge Sen. Mikulski to consider the obvious flaw in her assessment and take the Whole Life Pledge, which recognizes that all human rights and dignity are predicated on a recognition and respect for all human life, especially at its earliest stage in the womb.
Mikulski is also the sponsor of an amendment to the Senate health care bill that could open the door for the Obama administration to force insurance companies to pay for abortions.
