DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD IN OMNIBUS BILL - CALL SENATORS NOW!

Senator David Vitter of Louisiana, pro-life stalwart, introduced an amendment (SA 601) to the notorious Omnibus Appropriations Bill (H.R. 1105) yesterday that prevents Planned Parenthood from Receiving Title X funds.

YOUR SUPPORT IS NEED TO PREVENT PLANNED PARENTHOOD FROM RECEIVING COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF YOUR TAXPAYER DOLLARS!

This is the first time an amendment seeking to take money away from Planned Parenthood, by name, has ever been introduced in the Senate! US Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana introduced the same amendment in the 110th Congress to the Health and Human Services Appropriations Bill in the House of Representatives.

Please contact your senators by calling the United States Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121. A switchboard operator will connect you directly with the Senate office you request.

The Vitter Amendment (SA 601) simply states, “None of the funds appropriated under this Act shall be made available to Planned Parenthood for any purpose under title X of the Public Health Service Act.”

Title X funding is a "family planning" appropriations program under the Public Health Service Act. Planned Parenthood receives over 70 million of Title X dollars each year for the distribution of abortifacient birth control and other sex products.

Your tax dollars have been used to make Planned Parenthood the nation’s largest abortion chain. It’s time for us to stand up with Senator Vitter and say NO MORE!!!

Please call your Senators and let them know what you think about the Vitter Amendment (SA 601) being added to the Omnibus Bill (HR 1105).

In this time of economic recession, Americans cannot afford to be lining the pockets of such a disreputable business. It’s time to fight back. Defund Planned Parenthood of its Title X funding by calling your senator NOW!
