Thanks so much for making our call-in day a huge success! Senators received lots of calls from their constituents on this issue, and we are not going to quit now. We urge you to continue to light up the Senate (and House) switchboards. Planned Parenthood is continuing their advertising blitz — railing against members of Congress who voted against giving them your money.
Yesterday, the Senate voted on the House-passed spending bill (which included the pro-life Pence amendment) and on a Senate substitute bill introduced by liberal Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii). Both bills failed to get the 60 votes needed.
Now it looks like there will need to be another short-term continuing resolution (CR) to keep the government funded for another 3-4 weeks. This will cut spending, but not necessarily to the programs we have wanted to see eliminated. Nor will this short-term bill include efforts to defund Planned Parenthood!
Please call your representative and senators today, and urge them to defund Planned Parenthood!
In today’s tight economic times when families are forced to make tough decisions about their finances, it’s morally reprehensible for the federal government to force Americans to subsidize the largest abortion provider in our country.
