A message from Ashley Morgan:
As we focus our prayer this week on the Senate to Defund Planned Parenthood, who killed over 328,000 boys and girls last year according to their annual report, I want to remind everyone that there will be another prayer effort at Planned Parenthood Waldorf this Saturday from 1000-1100. I will not be able to attend this event. Please park at the CVS across the street, make a small purchase, and join the prayer effort.
ALSO, please read the below letter from the FRC (Family Research Council) and call or email your Senators and encourage them to defund Planned Parenthood through the Health Care Bill. The bill may not be perfect, but it's better than what we have. Also, the plan is to incrementally improve it; and it's good enough to pull $390 mil a year from Planned Parenthood.
Dear Fellow Pro-Lifer,
New shocking undercover expose videos have emerged showing high ranking Planned Parenthood officials and others at a National Abortion Federation conference talking about gruesome late term abortions in the most horrific of terms.
The time for action to defund Planned Parenthood and to repeal and replace Obamacare is now, and the House-passedAmerican Health Care Act (H.R. 1628) is the best vehicle to do it!
Here are disturbing samples from the new undercover video:
"An eyeball just fell down into my lap, and that is gross!" [laughter from the crowd]
-- Dr. Uta Landy, Founder of the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS), Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA)
"I might ask for a second set of forceps to hold the body at the cervix and pull off a leg or two, so it's not PBA [partial-birth abortion]."
-- Dr. Ann Schutt-Aine, Director of Abortion Services for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast
As a nation, we are without excuse in continuing to fund these atrocities with our tax dollars. Moreover, days after the new video's release, Planned Parenthood released its annual report, showing that while its abortions and taxpayer funding increased, its prenatal care, contraception, and screenings decreased.
Under the American Health Care Act, pro-lifers will see over $390 million (over 85%) of federal taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood rescinded and Obamacare gutted, stopping subsidies for health care plans that cover elective abortion. The bill's "replace" components include funding restrictions on elective abortion for new tax credits to purchase health insurance and all other funding streams for health care. These House-passed pro-life provisions must be retained and supported in the Senate version which, as a budget bill, can pass with just 51 votes!
Please call your Senators at (202) 224-3121 to urge them to defund Planned Parenthood, repeal and replace Obamacare, and retain elective abortion funding restrictions in any Senate version of the House-passed American Health Care Act(H.R. 1628). After you've called, you can also email them by following this link.
Thank you for your efforts in defense of life and the family!
Standing (Eph. 6:13),
Urge your Senators to Defund Planned Parenthood and Repeal/Replace Obamacare
Students for Life of America just made a BIG impact with their #SockIt2PP Tour where they collected 196,543 baby socks to represent just a portion of the lives lost to Planned Parenthood through their abortion services. Planned Parenthood just released their annual report and it shows that the number of abortions is actually higher. Students for Life needs to collect 127, 805 baby socks to meet the 328,348 goal which Planned Parenthood reports is their number of abortions performed from 2015-2016. They plan on taking these socks all over the nation to college campuses to show students the effects of Planned Parenthood's abortion services. Students for Life needs your help to meet this goal! Click here to see just how you can do just that! Any donation you can make would also be appreciated.
