The August 12, 2010 Sunbury Daily Item Editorial states, Carney, Marino ought to get focused on the issues (http://dailyitem.com/0110_editorials/x1627561197/Carney-Marino-ought-to-get-focused-on-issues). The editorial then goes on to claim Congressman Carney is pro-life and votes that way; which is far from correct. Congressman Carney’s very first vote as c9ngressman was for using tax money to fund abortion. See Carney’s record listed below for the facts. Abortion IS an issue that is important to many of us!
1/11/07 Carney voted (roll call 19) against the National Right to Life Committee position on the Stem Cell Research Enhancement Act anti-cloning amendment. This bill would mandate federal funding of the type of stem cell research that requires the killing of human embryos in order to harvest their stem cells.
1/12/07 Carney voted (roll call 23) against the National Right to Life Committee position on the Medicare Prescription Drug Price Negotiation Act. Under the guise of lowering costs through “government negotiation”, this bill would have effectively stripped seniors of the right to use there own money to buy drugs.
6/6/07 (possible Carney defense) Carney voted (roll call 439) WITH the National Right to Life Committee position on the “The Human Cloning Prohibition Act.”. NRL opposed this deceptively named legislation because it would have allowed the creation of cloned human embryos.
2007 NARAL rates Carney 100% pro-choice.
7/19/07 Carney voted to keep funding (roll call 684) the largest abortion provider in country, Planned Parenthood (1/3rd of its billion $ budget is federal money). Then he voted to expand funding (roll call 1171) 5 months later. Planned Parenthood was exposed by UCLA journalism student Lila Rose for accepting donations to abort certain minorities and last year for telling a potential client to lie about her age to avoid requirements to report statutory rape.
