Contact Your Representative and Senators and Urge them to Defund Planned Parenthood Now!

September 14, 2017

Dear Friends,

Our window of opportunity for defunding Planned Parenthood this year is closing fast. I need you to join me in sending a message to Congress to say you no longer will stand for your tax dollars being used to fund the nation’s largest abortion business.

Please read through this email and take the steps to contact your Representative and Senators!

The good news is that our pro-life members of Congress are willing to do this, and so is the President.

The challenge is that there is no more time to delay. And of course, the other side is getting very vocal about continuing to fund this corrupt organization.

So what our elected officials need right now is a strong reminder from you and me that this is a top priority and we want to see it get done now!

And timing is everything.

Without getting into the complex details of House and Senate procedure, I can tell you this: We have until the end of this month – September 30 – to use a procedural rule that make it as easy as it gets for the House and Senate to take the money away from Planned Parenthood.

Fiscal Year 2017 ends on that day. Once per fiscal year, Congress can utilize a process called "reconciliation," which only requires a majority vote in the Senate -- and the pro-life votes have the majority! So a bill is being unveiled now that would reform health care and include the defunding  of Planned Parenthood.

But the clock is ticking --  if we (or they) wait much longer, it actually gets harder.

If they miss this window, there will be another chance at the start of fiscal year 2018, but it will be much more challenging, because in that scenario, the defunding of Planned Parenthood would need to be included in the tax reform bill, which is the bill that would be utilizing the “reconciliation” process.

SO NOW IS THE TIME TO ACT!!

There is enough consensus right now on stopping the flow of your money and mine to Planned Parenthood, the largest baby-killing business in America.

So why wait? Let's urge the Congress to take this step now!

I need you to contact your senators and representatives even if they are firmly pro-life or are so pro-abortion that they are unlikely to be swayed. All of them still need to hear from you! When those on either side of this issue make their case to their colleagues and to the media, we want them to be able to say that lots of people support de-Funding Planned Parenthood!

The link below will lead you to simple action steps I am urging you to take now.

Remember, we are talking about nearly $400 million of taxpayer money going to a corrupt enterprise that is killing babies, selling their body parts, and engaging in other criminal activity that we have helped uncover over the years.

We are talking about 43 percent of Planned Parenthood's total revenue -- and not one dime of this money would not be taken away from women's health care, but rather redirected to community health centers that outnumber Planned Parenthood by 20 to one, and that don't kill babies.

This is a win-win situation for the pro-life movement, for women's health, and for children in the womb!

So please act today, and please pass along this email to as many others as you know who may be interested.

Please click below and follow the instructions that I will give you.
