3/24 & 3/25 to Defund Planned Parenthood

 

(Your Home Town, USA) -- Right now, Representatives are back in their respective Congressional Districts for an entire week – giving us the perfect opportunity to send them a strong message that Planned Parenthood must be defunded.  ALL has joined with over 30 pro-life groups for this Defund Planned Parenthood Action!

1.      Please WATCH the “ALL” new video “We’re Waiting” on documented fraud, failure to report child abuse, and even aiding sex trafficking that makes Planned Parenthood ineligible for federal contracts according to Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 52.203-13(b)(2).
 
2.      SEND AND LINK: Link to “We’re Waiting” on Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and other social media; Send the link and this action alert to your friends and contact lists.  
 
3.      CONTACT your Representative today--tell them that Defunding Planned Parenthood must be a Non-Negotiable in the Continuing Resolution.  Be respectful, be firm, but be there!  Get all contact information you need at:  http://exposeplannedparenthood.net/contact-congress/. 

Last week, by a vote of 271-158, the House approved a second short-term Continuing Resolution (CR) bill that would keep the government running for three weeks.  

First, the bad news: the three-week Continuing Resolution did not include the Pence Amendment that would defund Planned Parenthood. 

Now the good news: 158 Members voted against the Continuing Resolution, with many pro-life Representatives voting against it because it failed to defund Planned Parenthood – an incredible show of momentum for our efforts.

Our pro-life heroes in Congress led the charge, with Reps. Jim Jordan, Mike Pence, Joe Pitts, Michele Bachmann, Jean Schmidt, and Chris Smith voting against the bill. They were joined by many courageous pro-life freshman such as Rep. Tim Huelskamp who refused to back the measure because it didn’t defund Planned Parenthood. 
 
The buzz on Capitol Hill is that pro-life lawmakers are growing tired of short-term Continuing Resolution bills and are ready to dig in and fight hard for a long-term Continuing Resolution bill that completely defunds Planned Parenthood – which means the next three weeks are the most critical yet in this fight. And momentum is on our side!

We must turn up the heat right now as the next three weeks are going to be critical in the fight to ensure Planned Parenthood is defunded in the final Continuing Resolution bill.

This fight is far from over, and every single day, momentum is growing, as last week’s vote showed us.
 
It is imperative that you contact your Representative’s local district office and let his staff members know that you want him to vote to take all federal government money away from Planned Parenthood.

Either call the office or, better yet, stop in and let them know in person that you are serious about wanting Planned Parenthood defunded.

We are working with a large coalition of groups opposing Planned Parenthood and we are trying to make sure Representative’s district offices receive calls every day this week. So, although you can call at any time, we ask that you especially try to call today,  Thursday, March 24.

You can get the phone number and see suggested talking points by going to http://exposeplannedparenthood.net/contact-congress/ and putting in your zip code.

We are reaching a critical stage in this year’s fight and your action NOW could help push this over the top.

THANK YOU for everything you are doing to help take all taxpayer money away from Planned Parenthood.
