Congress has five days to pass a budget bill through the reconciliation process. After that point, they need to wait until next year to pass legislation with a simple 50-vote majority in the Senate.
There are some issues that we will be able to force 8-10 Democrats to vote for. Defunding Planned Parenthood will not be one of them. The party of death won't allow it.
Right now, Congress is considering legislation that would pull the plug on the nation's largest abortion provider. It would cut off all access to Federal dollars, including Medicaid. This would essentially bankrupt Planned Parenthood's abortion business. Not only that, but it would cut off Federal tax credits for any company or private health insurance plan that covers abortion.
The result would be a complete firewall between Federal taxdollars and abortionists. If this measure passes, then starting next year, it would be illegal for federal funding to go towards abortions or plans that cover abortions.
This will cripple Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. But it must pass this week, otherwise we will have to wait until next year to try again.
GOP traitors like Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and John McCain are threatening to kill this bill and keep Planned Parenthood fully funded.
Don't let them sabotage this!
Don't let the GOP and Dems run out the clock! Send your instant message and FORCE Congress to defund Planned Parenthood this week!
Planned Parenthood performs 30 percent of the country's abortions, an estimated 887 abortions every day. Half of all Planned Parenthood customers use federal funding to pay for their procedures.
We are talking about saving hundreds of innocent lives every single day. That is what is at stake. Every day that the GOP stalls and the Democrats obstruct this defunding bill, hundreds of babies are killed in the womb.
In five days, the window to pass this bill closes. If we do not mobilize and get this bill signed into law, we are condemning hundreds of thousands of innocent children to death next year.
This is the single, best chance to halve the abortion industry in this country. Literally, we can cut Planned Parenthood and the entire abortion industry in this country in half by cutting off federal funding.
We have never had an opportunity like this. Never. For years, pro-life Americans have marched on behalf of the unborn. We have stood against the forces of death and blocked them from expanding their anti-life agenda. All of that activism has brought us to this point. Now is the chance to go on offense and fight for the unborn!
Five short days. That is how long until we know whether Planned Parenthood remains federally funded or whether they will be forced to file for bankruptcy and restructure due to a lack of funding.
You have a chance, right now, to strike the biggest blow against the abortion industry and save countless lives.
Please, do it. Fight for the unborn!
It is now or never! Send your instant FaxBlast to Congress and DEMAND that they vote this week to defund Planned Parenthood, once and for all!
Let's end Planned Parenthood once and for all!
