Pence Ammendment (TIMELY)

As you read this message, Congress is right now debating a bill to fund our government. 

Time is of the essence.

The debate over a temporary budget will also include a key vote on whether Planned Parenthood will continue to received millions of taxpayer dollars --- our money!

Now is the time to cut Planned Parenthood off the federal dole.  I just called and left my message for my representative. It is very easy to do. Please read on - it only takes a minute.

We spoke yesterday with the office of Indiana Rep. Mike Pence, and he needs our help. They need all pro-life voters to contact their Representative and ask them to support the Pence Amendment to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood.

This vote relates to the temporary funding “Continuing Resolution” that will keep our government funded through the end of the year. Rep. Pence will introduce an amendment that would prohibit any federal funds this year from going to Planned Parenthood.

This vote could happen as early as tomorrow. Please stop what you are doing and call now!

Call the Capitol Hill switchboard: (202) 224-3121
Tell your Representative: Support the Pence Amendment! 
If you do not know who your rep is they will tell you at the switchboard.

Of course, not every Member of Congress is pro-life. But you don’t have to be 100% pro-life to support this amendment. Our government is out of money. The last place our dollars should be going is to Big Abortion.

The first objection you will likely hear is: “This money does not pay for abortions but pays for women’s health.”

But everyone knows that funds are fungible. Taxpayers provide Planned Parenthood $363 million a year. That means one-third of Planned Parenthood’s annual budget comes from the hard working Americans – including you and me! If our tax money is paying for salaries, or rent or other expenses, that frees up their other money to be spent on abortion.

And abortion is what Planned Parenthood does. They are responsible for nearly one-quarter, or over 324,000, abortions in the United States every year. It’s an outrage that taxpayers have to support Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood has declared an emergency. Tens of thousands of their members are calling to protect this funding.

Your representative needs to hear from you. Before it’s too late.

Please call your Representative today at (202) 224-3121.

Tell them to support the Pence Amendment to the CR (Amendment #11).
