Action Alert:  Obamacare Replacement

This week, February 21-26, Congress is in recess (district work period). When they return, we expect committees to begin drafting budget reconciliation legislation, which may contain a repeal of some or all of Obamacare, healthcare replacement legislation and language to defund Planned Parenthood.

It is urgent that you reach out to your pro-life lawmakers to urge that any healthcare replacement legislation must explicitly exclude abortion coverage in federally subsidized healthcare plans.

Tell your lawmakers:
  • Federal subsidies must not be used to purchase plans that cover elective abortion.  The prohibition must be written into the underlying healthcare legislation, not something that is "fixed later."
  • Insurers must not be federally mandated to cover abortion and there must be robust conscience protections for health care providers.
  • They should retain employer paid health insurance and keep it fully untaxed so that Americans who have employer-based insurance have continued access to quality healthcare to preserve their lives and good healthcare, rather than care that would be reduced and rationed more each year due to caps on deductibility
Legislative Update: February 24, 2017

Pro-Life bills have moved to the House and Senate Calendars and could come up for debate at any time.


We need you in Jefferson City on Tuesday, March 14 to show your support for our pro-life legislators!
 
The vote by Aldermen/women and signature by the Mayor that has made St. Louis City a "Sanctuary City for Abortion" and the "2016 Investigations of Planned Parenthood" showing clear violations of our laws show the need for our legislators to take action on both issues! 

We need protection of our religious freedoms not to be forced to participate in abortion and we need inspections of abortion clinics for the protection of women and unborn babies. And, we need to make sure that baby body parts from abortion are not being bought and sold in Missouri!
