On February 18, 2011, the House of Representatives adopted an amendment offered by Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN) to yank tens of millions of dollars from the Nation’s largest abortion provider, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), that it receives under Title X. Now, it’s the Senate’s turn and we need your help!
First, contact Sen. Blunt and Sen. McCaskill and ask them to vote to de-fund Planned Parenthood. As part of last week’s “budget deal,” the Senate will have a separate, stand alone vote this Thursday or Friday, April 14 or 15, on House Concurrent Resolution 36, which would cut off federal funds to PPFA and its affiliates (similar to the Pence Amendment).
If you have written to or called them already, please contact them again! Pro-abortion stalwarts will be pulling out all the stops to flood them with calls and emails telling them to vote no, so they need an avalanche of your calls and emails demanding that Planned Parenthood not receive your tax money.

The Senate will also vote on House Concurrent Resolution 35, which would remove funding for the entire Obama health care law that was enacted in 2010. The Obama health care law contains multiple provisions that will, if fully implemented, result in government-imposed rationing of lifesaving medical care. In addition, the Obama health care law contains multiple provisions authorizing funding of abortion and funding of health plans that cover abortion. Urge Senators Blunt and McCaskill to also vote to defund Obamacare.
