Tell the Senate to Cut Federal Funding to Planned Parenthood

From Americans United for Life (AUL):

Dear Friend of Life,

Join us in our efforts to de-fund Planned Parenthood: Call your Senator’s state office today while the Senate is in recess.

Your call is vital to inform your Senator that you refuse to be forced to support the largest abortion provider in the country—Planned Parenthood—with your tax dollars. Your Senator can make a difference and help to stop funding the nation’s largest abortion provider.

With your help, we will let the Senate hear the voters’ voices, loud and clear, telling them to oppose funding the nation’s largest abortion provider with our hard earned tax dollars. Your voice can make a difference. Over 70 percent of Americans oppose using tax dollars to fund abortions.

Make your voice heard.

Call and urge your Senator to vote to stop the

millions of dollars the Federal Government currently gives to Planned Parenthood each year.

Talking Points:

■ More than 70 percent of Americans—both pro-life and pro-abortion—agree that our tax dollars should not be used to subsidize the abortion industry, particularly the nation’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood.

■ As Congress continues to negotiate the Fiscal Year 2011 budget and to make further cuts to government spending, a priority must be to zero out permanently taxpayer funding of the nation’s largest abortion provider: Planned Parenthood and its affiliates.

■ Particularly in this time of economic uncertainty, the Government ought to spend its time and our money funding things that matter to the American people. We should not be compelled to watch our tax dollars spent on abortion and funding corrupt organizations like Planned Parenthood, which consistently demonstrates a blatant disregard for women’s health and the law.

■ I urge you to stand with the majority of Americans and ensure that we are no longer forced to fund the nation’s largest abortion provider with our tax dollars.
