NRLC Silent on Real Death Panels

Our friends at Vox Nova ask a good question: As a second person dies in Arizona because budget cuts removed them from the line of organ donors, where is the National Right to Life Committee? The NRLC ranted and raved about the health care reform law which might, if certain worst case scenarios played out, result in some federal funding of abortion. (Incidentally, those worse case scanrios have not, repeat not, come to pass and there is no evidence of any federal funds going to pay for abortions anywhere in America.) But, while real lives are being lost in Arizona because the governor out there has mistakenly concluded that almost all organ donations do not work, the NRLC is silent. Shame on them.
