Action Alert! Defunding Planned Parenthood

No American should be forced to financially support abortion mills. That’s the principle at stake in the US Senate this very moment. The Senate votes tomorrow or Friday on whether or not to defund Planned Parenthood the hundreds of millions of dollars in tax money they receive from our pockets every year.

This is not a guaranteed victory. Senate leadership and President Obama have threatened to derail our efforts in the past, and Planned Parenthood rallied with massive lobbying efforts, but we stood strong. As a result, the US House overwhelmingly passed the measure earlier this year by 240-185. But tomorrow or Friday’s vote in the Senate – with much tighter margins – is crucial.

This is a war of numbers, so we need your help. Congress responds best when they know Americans are tuned in. So before our senators walk into that chamber in the next day or so, they need to know we are adamant that Planned Parenthood be defunded.>

Please, call your senators right now! Tell them you know the facts. Planned Parenthood receives $363 million in tax dollars. Performing 332,000 abortions, they rake in a $1.1008 billion annual income. All this while recent reports reveal the willingness of facility after facility to cover for rapists and sexual traffickers and make a buck off of vulnerable young girls.

Ask your senator: Why are we subsidizing a billion-dollar industry that disrespects women, defies the law, and deceives communities? Surely we can do better.
