Dear Readers,

Did you know that your tax dollars fund Planned Parenthood and abortion? They do.

The House of Representatives passed a bill defunding Planned Parenthood (PP). I urge you to contact our senators to do likewise. PP has been in the news recently having been exposed in several states for their willingness to support and provide services for sex trafficers of underage girls. I feel no doubt that they have been doing this for years. PP is the largest provider of abortions in the U.S., 324,000+ in one year and they have been receiving hundreds of millions of dollars of federal tax dollars a year. Inconceivably shameful!

Please urge our representatives to pass laws to protect womb children. These are persons deserving protection under the law. There is the Protect Life Act that would ban federal abortion mandates and subsidies from appearing in any element of the new healthcare system, which should be repealed in its entirety. Groups are pushing for the Child Interstate Abortion Notification Act, which would make it a crime for adults to help minors cross state lines to have an abortion without parental consent. Reps. Chris Smith of New Jersey and Dan Lipinski of Illinois are expected to introduce legislation establishing a permanent government-wide prohibition on taxpayer funding of abortion.

Get involved. Find out what’s happening with these bills. One more election could make all the difference. Remind them that 15 out of 20 pro-life House Democrats who voted for the healthcare bill lost their jobs in 2010.
