Say No to the Shaheen Amendment
As a Christmas shutdown battle looms, Concerned Women for America is on the front lines to prevent your tax-dollars from funding abortions. But we need your help to make sure Congress doesn’t break their commitment and add the “poison pill” Shaheen Amendment to any FY 2020 spending bill. 
 
The Shaheen Amendment, offered by Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-New Hampshire), increases funding for programs that have been used to support the abortion industry and advocacy overseas. The amendment was disturbingly included in the SFOPS bill passed out of the Senate Appropriations Committee. While the SFOPS bill has not gone to the floor for a vote, avoidance of the Shaheen Amendment is not a solution. Something must be done to remove it from the FY 2020 spending bill and ensure it doesn’t get passed in the commotion of avoiding a Christmas government shutdown. 
 
This is a critical moment in the fight to protect the Trump Administration’s progress. Please join with CWA as we tirelessly work through our legislative and international affairs departments to stop Congress from accepting the Shaheen amendment and the attempt to reinstate taxpayer funding of abortion overseas. Thankfully, President Trump promised in January to veto any bill that undermines current pro-life policy. 
 
CWA joined with other prolife organizations this week to send a letter to President Trump thanking him for his commitment to protect life and urging him to make clear to Congress that he opposes the Shaheen Amendment.  We believe the President stands with us and will uphold his veto promise to oppose any spending bill that compromises pro-life policy or uses taxpayer funds to prop up the abortion industry. 
 
But we need your help to back up opposition to the Shaheen Amendment in Congress. Please take a moment to send a note to your elected officials asking them to reject the Shaheen Amendment in the FY 2020 State-Foreign Operations Appropriations bill.
 
Say no to the Shaheen Amendment.
