The Debate is on .... Kind of.
Though the elected officials who authored Proposal 5 don't have the courage of their convictions to debate, Vermonters for Good Government Spokeswoman Representative Anne Donahue will have the opportunity to discuss the proposed amendment this Sunday with a proponent on NBC5 "In Depth."
"While I wish the authors of this amendment would be willing to publicly defend their work, I am happy to discuss with anyone what Proposal 5 really is about - enshrining late term abortion in our state's constitution," said Representative Donahue.
This forum entitled "Reproductive Liberty Amendment" may be your only opportunity to hear our expert, Representative Anne Donahue, discuss Proposal 5 directly with a supporter of this proposal on television.
Sunday, October 2nd
Debate: "Reproductive Liberty Amendment/ "In Depth"
10:00 -10:30 AM
NBC5 "In Depth" program
Representative Donahue's credentials as one of the most respected and informed health care policy experts in the Vermont State House are unquestioned.
That's why Vermonters for Good Government has been eager to engage the authors of Proposal 5 in a civil debate about the truth behind this amendment.
Instead the authors are trying to hide the facts and convince voters this amendment is about codifying Roe vs. Wade.
Proposal 5 is about nothing more than enshrining late-term abortion -- terminating a fully developed baby, days or hours before birth -- in Vermont's Constitution.
Late-term abortion is not what most voters - including pro-choice voters - want in our state Constitution.
The authors of Proposal 5 know this and that is why they have been trying to duck our debates.
Please tune in this Sunday, October 2nd at 10:00 am on NBC5 and forward this email to your friends and family encouraging them to join you.
