Friday, February 18, was a historic day. The United States House of Representatives voted 240–185 to cut off funding to the nation’s number one promoter of the culture of death—Planned Parenthood.
Despite this victory, the Senate did not vote to defund Planned Parenthood. However, the fight is not over. As Congress continues to debate the nation’s budget, we must continue to focus our efforts on Congress—to make this a victory, not only for babies, but for the souls of our children as well.
To reiterate the point we’ve so vehemently attempted to illuminate, Planned Parenthood receives millions of our tax dollars annually. The organization uses that money to market sleaze, killing and promiscuity. It makes no apologies and, indeed, is ever at the ready to press for even more money.
And it seems as though the government is more than willing to give it. Planned Parenthood is Obama’s number one fan. Its staff worked closely with Obama’s team to craft a health care law which provides the organization with additional tax dollars to do more damage by establishing school-based clinics which will make it possible to do abortion referrals from the counseling office in the school!
Are you angry yet?
You should be, because each child whose mind is assaulted with such sleaze is a child whose very soul is at risk—not to mention that child’s physical and psychological well-being.
The hour is late and we are making progress. While we have raised awareness in Congress, we still need to do more. Join us today to fight back the evil tentacles of Planned Parenthood by taking the following steps:
1) If your Congressman voted for the Pence Amendment, send him or her a thank you. You can find contact information here.
2) Give your Congressmen the links to the Live Action videos, which show clearly how Planned Parenthood works to protect sexual predators and those who want to enslave children in the sex trafficking trade.
3) Explain that Planned Parenthood has been given billions in tax dollars, yet it lacks accountability for this money. A report from the Government Accountability Office gleaned from Planned Parenthood's Single Audit Act reports shows that Planned Parenthood failed to account for $1.3 billion dollars in government funding received between the years 2002-2008.
4) Refer your Congressmen to the ALL web site or the STOPP web site, where there is a plethora of information regarding the heinous actions of Planned Parenthood.
It is imperative that we all take action. We cannot sit idly by while hoping that “someone else” will call, or “someone else” will write, or “someone else” will make a difference. We are the ones who will make a difference. And we are the ones who must take the action.
Let us not hesitate!
