Contact your Senators now to make sure the Senate Health Bill remains their top priority!

July 6, 2017

Dear Friends,

When the U.S. Senate reconvenes on July 10, we need to be sure each senator’s attention returns immediately to the health care bill under consideration.

I ask you to help me deliver a message to them:

Senators: Keep the momentum moving on the health care bill!

When you're back at your office, keep it as priority number one!

As you know, the Senate is wrestling with H.R. 1628, the Better Care Reconciliation Act – the measure to amend Obamacare. 

The House of Representatives has already passed its version of the bill and the House version includes two pro-life provisions.  It would make Planned Parenthood ineligible to participate in the Medicaid program next year, meaning $400 million in federal money would be redirected away from the billion-dollar abortion business and toward real health care providers!  And the House bill applies the Hyde amendment’s abortion funding restrictions to health insurance plans offered through the government system.

The Senate version of the Obamacare replacement bill can do no less!

We must let our Senators know that these two crucial pro-life provisions – Planned Parenthood defunding and applying the Hyde amendment to health insurance coverage – are not negotiable.  They must be included in H.R. 1628.

Reportedly, there are at least two Republican Senators who support Planned Parenthood.  And, of course, all Democratic Senators do as well.  That means that we can pass a bill to defund Planned Parenthood – if, and only if, all other pro-life Senators stand strong, enabling Vice President Pence to cast the tie-breaking pro-life vote.  That means we must stand strong with those Senators.

Please contact your Senators and insist that they get back to work immediately on the health care bill that defunds Planned Parenthood and bars abortion coverage in government-backed health insurance plans.
