CODEPINK tells Pelosi, "Healthcare, Not Warfare!" & "Don't Buy Bush's War!" at Bayview Child Health Center located at 1335 Evan Avenue on Thursday, Sept. 13th in the Bayview District of San Francisco while holding pink signs, banners and distributing Peace Prescriptions outside of Pelosi's invitation only press conference.

One fourth of the Iraq war budget alone could fund healthcare for every uninsured
person in this country.

Think what the trillions of dollars wasted on war, occupation and destruction could
do for the American people. While the war is bleeding us at home it is miniscule
in comparison to the bloodshed, misery and pain that is being inflicted on the Iraqi
people. The Lancet medical journal documented that 655,000 Iraqi civilians have
been killed during the war (Oct, 2006). The health of the Iraqi people and the entire
region has been destroyed.
