Tell Republican majority to defund Planned Parenthood!

Filed under Choose LifeShare!  

Both President Trump and Congress got voted in on pro-life rhetoric, but so far they failed to defund Planned Parenthood. The killing is still going on and blood is on our hands. Please sign the following letter. It will be mailed to Senate Majority Leader McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Tell Republican majority to defund Planned Parenthood!

Dear Sir or Madam:

This Republican Pro-life Congress made a promise to American voters to stop taxpayer funding for the largest abortion chain in the nation, Planned Parenthood. It is now well past time to deliver on that promise.

In the prior Congress, legislation to stop Medicaid funding to the abortion behemoth was sent to the President’s desk and vetoed by then-President Obama. Excited by this clear proof that a defunding bill could reach the Oval Office, the American people responded by sending President Trump, who pledged to sign legislation to defund Planned Parenthood, to the White House. However, eight months since his inauguration, the Congress has failed to send President Trump a bill redirecting Planned Parenthood funding to alternative providers.

While many important pro-life legislative initiatives face the hurdle of requiring a super majority to avoid a filibuster in the Senate, it only takes a simple majority to stop taxpayer subsidies to Planned Parenthood through a Budget Reconciliation bill which cannot be filibustered. The pro-life majority that now controls both chambers of Congress and the White House must pass a reconciliation bill stopping the vast majority of federal funding for Planned Parenthood. Doing anything less brings into question whether this Congress can truly be called the Pro-life Congress. Rhetoric must be translated into law.

We urge you to revisit the FY2017 Reconciliation bill immediately and find consensus on a bill that takes Planned Parenthood off the federal Medicaid dole and offers women comprehensive alternatives. Whether that is a broad pro-life healthcare reform package or a narrower bill is up to the Congress to determine, but giving up is not why the voters sent pro-life Republicans to Congress. Should robust efforts on the FY2017 Reconciliation bill run out of time, then the fight to defund Planned Parenthood must move immediately to the FY2018 Reconciliation bill.

Let there be no mistake about it: Planned Parenthood is big abortion. A recent Charlotte Lozier Institute paper, Planned Parenthood: “Irreplaceable” and “Lifesaving”? found that Planned Parenthood dominates the abortion market carrying out over 35% of all abortions in America. This statistic stands in stark contrast to their roughly 1% market share of HIV tests and Pap tests.

Planned Parenthood self-reports taking the innocent lives of 328,348 unborn children last year and similar numbers in previous years. That is 900 lives snuffed out before their first breath every single day by a single taxpayer-funded abortion chain. This tragedy is compounded every day that passes with inaction.

The time for results is now. Lives depend on your leadership and action.

It is a shame that Planned Parenthood was involved in selling baby body parts and that this government is not prosecuting the criminals but rather bullying and harassing the whistleblowers who exposed the crimes. California is about as bad as it can get when it comes to politicians and judges paid off by anti-life lobbyists. The judge who fines David Daleiden, who exposed the Planned Parenthood trade with baby body parts, is himself involved on the board of an organization that houses a Planned Parenthood clinic. California is somewhat of a socialist totalitarian “republic” including censorship by Silicon Valley social media corporations who were ordered by a judge to remove videos by Daleiden which exposed the Planned Parenthood scandal.

Let it be known that we want Planned Parenthood completely off the map and no longer messing with children and youth. We want a wall of separation between PP and youth.  That would be the least common denominator of simple, basic, down-to-earth “justice for all”. California severs as the primary example of the way it ought not to be.
