Below is an email I recently received from CatholicVote.com. I felt I had to share. I am hoping and praying that Michigan voters will replace Bart Stupak with a faithful Catholic man who will vote pro-life and not just talk as if he's pro-life and then fold under pressure. Actions speak far louder than words.
Dear CatholicVote Friend,
The race to replace retiring Rep. Bart Stupak is really heating up.
You remember Stupak. He claimed he would fight until the end to keep a ban on abortion funding in the health care bill. We stood up for him, and he abandoned us. Worse, he went to the House floor and attacked you for being a “hypocrite.”
But that’s not the end of the story.
Just last week, Bart Stupak endorsed his protégé Gary McDowell and pledged to do everything he can to elect him. And like Stupak, McDowell supports the health care bill as is. This law, remember, contains flimsy protections against taxpayer funding of abortion and no conscience protections to protect the rights of doctors and health care workers.
Here’s an idea – let’s replace Stupak with a principled and courageous Catholic doctor who knows the harm Stupak has done!
A pro-life Catholic physician has decided to take on Stupak’s hand-picked successor. His name is Dr. Dan Benishek, a pro-life Catholic surgeon who understands our health care system inside and out. He has proudly said, “From conception to natural death, all human life is sacred and must be protected.” Dr. Benishek wants to repeal the health care law.
Dr. Benishek is one of our 2010 CatholicVote.org featured endorsements, and right now is polling even with McDowell!
We’re preparing an avalanche of radio ads in this district.
Can we count on your help to put them on the air?
Bart Stupak let us down, but we won’t forget. Votes have consequences.
Help us send a strong message.

P.S. Dr. Dan Benishek is the kind of pro-life doctor we need in Congress.
He recently said, “We need to focus on free market reforms, which will increase competition and decrease costs. A good place to start would be to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with a bill allowing health insurance to be tax deductible, portable, and sold across state lines."
