Time is Running Out to Defund Planned Parenthood

Congress has a clear path for defunding Planned Parenthood, but time is rapidly running out.

Here’s what YOU can do. And PLEASE do it QUICKLY.

We are fast approaching the deadline for Congress to utilize a unique opportunity to keep your tax dollars from funding Planned Parenthood’s abortion agenda. They can end Planned Parenthood’s Medicaid reimbursement (about 80% of their total tax funding) through a reconciliation bill affecting the 2017 federal budget.  A reconciliation bill only needs a majority vote in the US House and Senate, which means only 51 votes in the Senate instead of the 60 votes needed to override a pro-abortion filibuster against the bill.

An earlier attempt to repeal Obamacare and divert Planned Parenthood’s funding to legitimate women health centers stalled in the House of Representatives.  And time is running out to use the reconciliation bill.

As a result, the babies need you to contact your Representative in the House IMMEDIATELY and ask him or her to quickly vote to defund Planned Parenthood.

If you and I don’t put the pressure on them, we may lose this chance to stop the flow of tax money into the largest kingpin of the abortion industry.

Last year Planned Parenthood brutally killed over 324,000 babies by abortion. Now is our chance to stop them, but . . .


We’ve made it easy to contact your member of Congress. YOU are the best hope to literally save hundreds of thousands of babies in the months ahead. Please stop whatever you’re doing and act now.

This may be the most important thing I will ask of you this year.
