Urgent: Contact Your Senators This Week to Defund Planned Parenthood
This week, the Senate has the opportunity to largely defund Planned Parenthood and repeal key parts of ObamaCare using a budget procedure called “reconciliation” which requires only 51 votes instead of the usual 60. The debate begins Wednesday, with amendments and a final vote expected on Thursday.
The bill will cut a massive portion of your taxpayer dollars that fund Planned Parenthood. While the special rules on Reconciliation cannot be used to defund ALL federal funding for Planned Parenthood, it CAN be used to cut millions from their pocket book—roughly 80%.
Repealing major portions of ObamaCare would also be a huge pro-life victory. The ObamaCare provision would alleviate federal pressure on people and employers who are forced to purchase health insurance which they may find objectionable, and cut spending from the “prevention fund,” which is a government slush fund that is able to pay directly for abortion. Amendments offered during debate tomorrow and Thursday may go even further, including eliminating the premium subsidies, through which the federal government subsidizes elective abortion in healthcare.
Please urge your senators to vote FOR the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act, and ask them to support eliminating Planned Parenthood’s funding and to repeal as much of ObamaCare as the budget rules allow.
