ACTION ALERT: Important Pro-Life Bill Before The U.S. House of Representatives
You’ve seen the endless number ofundercover, investigative videos, ― the 10th just released Tuesday, Sept. 15 — exposing the abortion industry’s practice of harvesting fetal parts and tissue after abortion.
You’ve heard the callousness in the voices of Planned Parenthood’s own leadership when they describe how they pre-determine which parts will come from which abortion procedure for the day.
What Is Congress Doing About It?
The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote on a measure to defund Planned Parenthood either Thursday, Sept. 17or Friday, Sept. 18. That’s why we are asking all citizens to immediately call and/or email your member of the House and ask him/her to support H.R. 3134 “Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015.”
That means now you can do something to help stop Planned Parenthood from receiving federal money and you can be a voice for the voiceless!
The “Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015” (H.R. 3134) will stop the taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood ― the nation’s largest abortion seller ― while Congress investigates its alleged sale of fetal baby parts. This will, hopefully, lead to the permanent defunding of this abortion business, which is responsible for more than 300,000 abortions per year and receives hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars annually.
This bill will freeze all federal funding to Planned Parenthood for at least one year.
Forty percent of Planned Parenthood’s budget comes from taxpayer dollars — totaling $528 million in 2013-2014.
In the wake of the recent undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood executives seemingly negotiating prices for fetal baby parts (an act prohibited by federal law), Congress is hearing from the public and moving to investigate the abortion giant.

PLEASE NOTE: When you call your representative, be prepared to give your name and street address to verify where you live. This is standard procedure with every Congressional office. Once this information has been conveyed, please kindly ask the representative to SUPPORT the “Defund Planned Parenthood Act,” (H.R. 3134) and that you’ll be following this issue, among many, during the 2016 Election season.
Efforts to pull funding from Planned Parenthood are coming from a variety of directions. From freestanding bills to legislation to "repeal and replace" of the Affordable Care Act, the push to defund the abortion giant continues on Capitol Hill in several forms.
