Pence Amendment to De-Fund Planned Parenthood in the Continuing Resolution
On Saturday, the House of Representatives passed a Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the government through September. The CR contained an amendment offered by Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana to defund Planned Parenthood of our tax dollars. The vote on this amendment took place the day before the bill was passed. Below is a list of Members who voted in favor of this life saving amendment and those who voted to keep America’s largest abortion provider funded for the rest of the fiscal year. If your representative voted to de-fund Planned Parenthood, be sure to contact them to thank them for voting for Life.
The CR battle now moves on to the Senate where many changes are expected. We need to make sure the Senate stands up for Life and maintains the Pence amendment in their version of the CR. Contact your Senators as soon as possible and encourage them to ensure the Pence amendment is included in the CR.
Once the CR passes the Senate, the House and Senate will go to Conference Committee to iron out the differences in the two versions. It is critical that the final CR defunds Planned Parenthood. This is a non-negotiable. Encourage your Member of Congress to ensure that Planned Parenthood is defunded in the Continuing Resolution.
