This is from Marjorie Dannenfelser, President, Susan B. Anthony List. She said:
'Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told reporters that defunding Planned Parenthood in the Continuing Resolution “won’t be part of an agreement.”
Meanwhile, our pro-life leaders in the House are digging in their heels, insisting that Planned Parenthood be defunded in the next Continuing Resolution bill. Rep. Mike Pence put it best when he said “it’s time to pick a fight.”
With the current temporary Continuing Resolution set to expire on April 8th, the next three weeks are the most critical ever in this fight. Congress is anxious to pass a long-term Continuing Resolution bill to fund the government through the end of the fiscal year instead of passing more short-term Continuing Resolutions.
That means we have just three weeks to show Congress we will accept nothing less than the complete defunding of Planned Parenthood of our tax dollars. We must ensure that our pro-life majority in the House stays strong and forces Harry Reid and his pro-abortion allies in the Senate to cut funding for Planned Parenthood. We have to make sure our pro-life allies in the House don’t blink when we need them most.
While we have momentum, the Expose Planned Parenthood coalition is working together to turn up the heat even more — especially this week, March 20st through March 27th, as the House is on recess, which means Representatives are headed back home to their respective Congressional districts.
Members of the Expose Planned Parenthood Coalition are asking their activists to call on a specific day this week. The goal is to ensure that phones in district offices are ringing off the hook all of this week while Representatives are back in their districts. Susan B. Anthony List activists will kick off the effort by calling Representative’s district offices TODAY, MARCH 21st.'
If you can, please call your Representative’s district office and urge them to to defund Planned Parenthood of our tax dollars in the Continuing Resolution.
