Help Lois Herr Against Joe Pitts (Stupak-Pitts Amendment)

We've referred many times on this blog to the Stupak Amendment, but actually it's the Stupak-Pitts Amendment and the "Pitts" is one Joe Pitts: a Republican in PA's 16th Congressional District.

Pitts has a challenger:

Lois Herr is no Blue Dog and she can use your help -- especially tomorrow -- at this rally:
A rally against the Stupak-Pitts Amendment to the U.S. House Healthcare reform bill is being held on Saturday, Nov. 21 at 10:30 AM in West Chester.

The rally, to be held this Saturday, is co-sponsored by the National Organization for Women (NOW) and Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates. Lois will be a featured speaker at the rally.


The Nov 21st Rally will be held at the Chester County Courthouse, 2 North High St., in West Chester, PA beginning at 10:30 AM.
Pitts is rallying his troops against Herr and they plan to protest her at the rally:
Subject: Protest Saturday
I received a call from Joe Pitts campaign office today asking if we can get some people at the CC Courthouse (on High St.) on Sat. at 10:30 a.m. Lois Herr, (not related to the Herr Family) is running against Joe Pitts next year. She is all about abortion and is in lock step with all the dems in congress. She will be pushing for abortion in health care. We need people there with signs supporting the Pitts-Stupak Amendment as well , as other pro-life signs.

Please pass this message on to any and all you think might be available to come. Also if you are able to be there, please let Jerri Lynn Wier know, so they will have an idea of how many people might be there. It is a given that the Daily Local will probably be there, and it would be good to have a good pro-life showing. Her e-mail address is: gwier@zoominternet. net.

Pitts-Stupak Amendment: The prohibition of the "public option" from paying for abortion, except to save the life of the mother, or in cases of rape or incest; and by permanently prohibiting the use of the new federal premium subsidies to purchase private insurance plans that cover abortion.
If you're anywhere near West Chester tomorrow, please try to attend: both in support of Herr and against Stupak-Pitts.
