Big victory in defund Planned Parenthood fight!
We won a huge pro-life victory last Friday! Pro-Life members of the U.S. House voted 240-189 to defund most of Planned Parenthood's federal money next year and to roll back some of the most life-threatening aspects of Obamacare.
The vote was on H.R. 3762, the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act. Our six pro-life Missouri Congressmen and women voted yes on this bill: Rep. Sam Graves (6th Dist.), Rep. Vicky Hartzler (4th Dist.), Rep. Billy Long (7th Dist.), Rep. Ann Wagner (2nd Dist.), Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (3rd Dist.) and Rep. Jason Smith (8th Dist.).
If you have not already thanked them for their vote, please remember to do so. Click here to find their contact info.

Do not be deceived by those who seek to profit from unethical research like human cloning - scientifically defined as somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) - and embryonic stem cell research. They deceptively offer miraculous cures and life-saving treatments under the disguise of research terminology in order to have no boundaries on any kind of research on animal or humans in order to line their pockets. Please check out research projects and/or research results with a trusted source.
