Pence Ammendment Update

Your prayers, your vigil participation earlier this week, and your calls late yesterday paid off!

The heated debate about stripping taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood -- America's largest abortion chain -- raged for more than two hours in the House of Representatives last night.

During the exchange on the House floor, Congressman Chris Smith read aloud a passage from "Unplanned" -- the bestselling book by former Planned Parenthood director Abby Johnson about her conversion during a 40 Days for Life campaign. Amazing!

And today, the U.S. House of Representatives -- by an overwhelming majority vote of 240 to 185 -- voted to DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD!!

Planned Parenthood is furious. In fact, they just sent out an "Open Letter to Congress" saying, "How
could you?"

How could they? Because that's what the American people told them to do!

The need for prayers and action is not over -- it will continue next week when your legislators come
back to their home districts, and in the U.S. Senate the following week ... so stay tuned, and be ready to
act on a moment's notice.
I don't believe it's a coincidence that this is all happening as you and I prepare to pray, fast,
stand vigil, and conduct grassroots outreach -- as we launch the largest 40 Days for Life campaign in
history on March 9th!

Pray hard.

This is the moment we've all been working for!

For Life,

David Bereit
National Director

40 Days for Life
