Congress: Defund Planned Parenthood

Dear Senator Donnelly, Senator Young, and Representative Walorski:

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s biggest seller of abortions, committing more than 300,000 abortions every year. Since Roe v. Wade they have taken over 7 million unborn lives while raking in billions of taxpayer dollars.

It is time for Congress to re-direct funds away from Planned Parenthood. Instead, fund community health centers, which outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities by at least 20 to one and offer a full range of primary health care, unlike Planned Parenthood.

You have a clear path to accomplish this goal. Pass a reconciliation bill that cuts off the largest funding streams for Planned Parenthood. Reconciliation language to do this already cleared procedural hurdles in the last Congress. Moreover, Congress has the votes to get it done now, and President Trump has promised his signature. Now it’s time to act on this opportunity.

The grassroots we represent expect you to stop funding this abortion giant. For years promises have been made, and the time has come to deliver. We urge you to pass a reconciliation bill that redirects Planned Parenthood funds to community health centers before the April recess. There are no excuses for inaction.

Planned Parenthood is at it Again…
12th Undercover CMP Video Goes Viral

Just over one year ago, David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress broke the scandal of Planned Parenthood selling baby parts over a series of 11 undercover videos. This Wednesday, a 12th video was released, the most shocking we have seen to date…

As the full press release shares, here are just a few of the atrocities you will hear upon watching this video:

  • “It’s not a matter of how I feel about it coming out intact, but I gotta worry about my staff and people’s feelings about it coming out looking like a baby.”
  • “We have the people who do our paperwork for the fetal death certificates, they email us calling them ‘babies’. Baby this, baby that, baby so-and-so, and I’m like, that’s creepy!”
  • “My biceps appreciate when the dig[oxin] works,” to kill the fetus before the procedure. “I remember when I was a [Family Planning] Fellow and I was training, I was like, Oh, I have to hit the gym for this…” when the fetus is still alive for the procedure.

As if the content of these videos was not enough, the reaction of government officials adds to the disappointment. After the release of this video on Wednesday, CMP’s David Daleiden was indicted on fifteen felony counts and accused of violating the privacy of Planned Parenthood. As one pro-life news source points out in another situation involving undercover videos of possible chicken abuse, California governing officials launched an investigation on the farm in question. However, when it comes to human life and Planned Parenthood, they choose to go after the whistle-blowers…

We CANNOT stand idly by and watch the abortion giant get away with victimizing more than 300,000 innocent children each year. Since Roe v. Wade they have taken over 7 million unborn lives while raking in billions of taxpayer dollars. The clock is ticking, as the organization brings in approximately $1.45 Million each day in taxpayer dollars.

It is time for Congress to re-direct funds away from Planned Parenthood and, instead, fund community health centers, which outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities by at least 20 to one and offer a full range of primary health care, unlike Planned Parenthood.

There is a clear path to accomplish this goal. A reconciliation bill can be passed that will cut off the largest funding streams for Planned Parenthood. Reconciliation language to do this already cleared procedural hurdles in the last Congress. Moreover, Congress has the votes to get it done now, and President Trump has promised his signature. Now it’s time to act on this opportunity.

Please take a moment to sign the petition above, urging Senator Donnelly, Senator Young, and Representative Walorski to take a stand for authentic women’s healthcare, by removing all federal funding from Planned Parenthood and redirecting it to community health centers that can better serve women’s needs. St. Joseph County Right to Life signed alongside dozens of other grassroots organizations, and you can too!
