URGENT! House vote TODAY on abortion funding

This message is from David Bereit, National Director 40 Days for Life. The vote has not taken place yet, so please take a few moments to respond to this important message.

Congress will vote THIS AFTERNOON on measures that
would prevent government funding for the nation's
largest abortion chain -- Planned Parenthood, an
organization that raked in over $360,000,000 in
taxpayer dollars last year.

It's absolutely vital that you call your Member of
Congress RIGHT NOW and tell them how you feel about
removing ALL taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood
and other abortion providers!

Call the US Capitol Switchboard at 202-224-3121 and
ask to be connected to your Representative's office.

If you don't know who that is, go here to find the
name by submitting your zip code:

In some cases you'll need to know your 9-digit zip.
Find that here:

As you know, Planned Parenthood has been in the news
lately for its institution-wide scandal of aiding and
abetting human trafficking of girls as young as 14.

Additionally the abortion chain has now ordered ALL
of its affiliates to start performing abortions --
or leave the Planned Parenthood umbrella.

On Monday, you and I -- and thousands of other people
of faith and conscience -- held prayer vigils outside
more than 200 Planned Parenthood offices to raise
awareness about how this organization is dangerous
for women and girls.

See photos, videos, news stories and more from vigils
around the country at:

At the same time we were praying on Monday, Planned
Parenthood's national president, Cecile Richards,
sent a massive e-mail blast to abortion advocates
across the nation with the subject line:

"The worst attack -- ever"

The message screamed: "URGENT! They want to shut down
every Planned Parenthood" and called our efforts the
most "dangerous assault" on their abortion business
in its entire history.

Richards begged abortion proponents to immediately
call Congress and demand a "NO" vote on any measure
to strip the abortion chain's taxpayer funding.

And word is that the abortion crowd is ringing phones
off the hook on Capitol Hill.

It is VITAL that you let Congress know how you feel
about de-funding Planned Parenthood!!

This could be a pivotal moment in our efforts to end
abortion in America!

For Life,

David Bereit
National Director
40 Days for Life

P.S.- Please forward this important message to your
friends and ask them to call as well - time is short!
