No More Delays

Hi, Jerry,

President Trump and Congress promised they would defund Planned Parenthood. They campaigned on this...they won an election on this...

But last Friday, the bill to stop most of Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding was pulled off the floor of the U.S. House. The defund was part of the Obamacare repeal and replace bill, and since there was so much disagreement over the Obamacare part, no vote was taken.

Jerry, I know you are frustrated and disheartened Planned Parenthood is still getting funding. I am, too. The good news is that we still have options. The bad news is that time is running out!

We need to tell Congress and President Trump TODAY that they must act now to use the current budget bill to end taxpayer subsidies to the abortion giant. Using what is called “budget reconciliation,” the Senate can then defund Planned Parenthood with only 51 votes instead of 60.

Every day Congress fails to redirect tax dollars away from Planned Parenthood, the abortion chain gets another $1.5 million from taxpayers to keep its doors open and kill 887 more preborn children.

Congress needs to hear from you: Planned Parenthood isn’t about women’s health. It’s the nation’s biggest abortion chain, killing over 320,000 preborn children every year.

Former Planned Parenthood managers have even testified how the abortion giant uses quotas to push cash-making abortions, doesn't provide the health care it claims it does (such as prenatal care), and “treats women like cattle.”

Women and children deserve better, and Washington must ensure that taxpayer money is actually spent on health care, not on keeping the doors to America's largest abortion chain open.

So, here’s what you can do now: Call, email, or tweet your representative that Planned Parenthood MUST be defunded NOW through the current budget reconciliation bill. The babies can’t wait any longer.

Here is the link to our Take Action page that provides you with easy ways to be a voice for the preborn. You’ll find contact information for your representative and suggestions on what to say: http://cqrcengage.com/liveaction/home?0

And please increase your impact by forwarding this link to five friends.

Jerry, the only way we will win this fight is if we URGE Congress to act NOW.

Thank you for all you do to defend the most vulnerable - our precious preborn children.

- Jo
