Late last Friday night, a deal was struck between leaders in the House and Senate to avoid a government shutdown. For the pro-life movement, we saw a partial victory.
While the deal did not include de-funding Planned Parenthood, it did force the pro-abortion leaders in the U.S. Senate and President Obama to accept the pro-life Dornan Amendment, which prevents tax-paying funding of abortions in the District of Columbia. It also mandated that the U.S. Senate, for the first-time ever, will have to take a vote this week on the Pence Amendment to de-fund Planned Parenthood.
This is significant.
It has been estimated that the Dornan Amendment will save over 1,000 pre-born babies a year from tax-payer funded abortion in the nation’s capital.
Because of your hard work, 1,000 precious babies will be saved this year in Washington, D.C.
And while, our goal of de-funding of Planned Parenthood was not achieved, we advanced the ball forward, pushing through the misleading rhetoric on Capitol Hill, and obtained the opportunity for an historic vote which will take place in the U.S. Senate this week.
This is huge! Just 2 months ago, experts said that getting a vote in the Senate would be impossible, and we shouldn’t even hope for it.
We will continue to fight for women and their preborn babies until we see an end to abortion. As the members of the White Rose, the student-led Nazi opposition group, once stated, “We will not be silent. We are your bad conscience.”
What You Can Do to De-Fund Planned Parenthood
1) Call your U.S. Senators today and demand that they vote to de-fund Planned Parenthood this week.
Remind, them that Planned Parenthood is lying about providing mammograms, and 98% of their services for pregnant women are abortions!

2) Change your Facebook status message to this:
Last week may have ended without de-funding Planned Parenthood, but that decision will not break our defiance. We will continue to fight for women and their preborn babies until we see an end to abortion. As the members of the White Rose, the student-led Nazi opposition group, once stated, “We will not be silent. We are your bad conscience.” Call your Senator today and demand that they defund Planned Parenthood this week! www.exposeplannedparenthood.com
Thank you for all that you have done these past few months to de-fund Planned Parenthood and end abortion. The Expose Planned Parenthood Coalition looks forward to working with you this week to continue to expose the abortion Goliath and putting pressure on the Senate Democrats to take a stance against Planned Parenthood.
