WASHINGTON, DC, December 15, 2009 (—Tonight prominent pro-life figures from across the nation will be speaking live in an urgent Stop the Abortion Mandate webcast designed to educate about the dangers of the abortion-funding healthcare bill in the Senate and about how to prevent the bill from being passed.

The webcast is run by Stop the Abortion Mandate Coalition, an alliance of over 50 pro-life and pro-family organizations that have banded together to stop what the Coalition calls the biggest expansion of abortion since Roe v. Wade.  It aims to help viewers prevent abortion industry lobbyists from using taxpayer money to pay for abortions and bail out the abortion industry.

The webcast will feature a panel of experts including:

Abby Johnson—Former Planned Parenthood; Director Marjorie Dannenfelser—Susan B. Anthony List; Tony Perkins—Family Research Council; Kristan Hawkins—Students for Life of America; Dr. Charmaine Yoest—Americans United for Life; Douglas Johnson—National Right to Life Committee; Kristen Day—Democrats for Life; Wendy Wright—Concerned Women for America; David Bereit—40 Days for Life

The free webcast will occur today at 9 PM Eastern (6 PM Pacific, 7 PM Mountain, 8 PM Central).  To register for the webcast, click here.

Previous Stop the Abortion Mandate webcasts have gathered up 36,000 viewers, more than any other pro-life webcast.
