DE-Fund Planned Parenthood! Call Your Congressman NOW!

From Tom Peters at American Papist:

"Pro-life warrior Rep. Mike Pence (R-Ind.) has given us a chance to have Planned Parenthood cut off from receiving federal funds through the Health and Human Services Department.

Pence has said (and written):

'The time has come to deny any and all federal funding to Planned Parenthood of America. The largest abortion provider in America should not also be the largest recipient of federal funds under Title X.'

He has offered a simple amendment which reads:

'None of the funds made available under this Act shall be available to Planned Parenthood for any purpose under Title X of the Public Health Services Act.'

It's a miracle this amendment made it through the rules committee last night, making it eligible for a general floor vote today. This is a chance to defund Planned Parenthood and also a chance to see who is in their pocket.

Since this vote is happening so soon, the best thing to do is call your congressional office now and tell them 'I want you to vote for the Pence Ammendment and defund Planned Parenthood!' The switchboard number is 202-224-3121 and they can direct you by state to the right office. Staffers are waiting to hear your voice. That's why they are there."

Thanks for sharing this, I will be sure to make a call to that number as soon as possible, and will try to get as many as I can to do the same.

God Bless,
