Ask Congress to Defund Planned Parenthood

The pro-life movement has the edge right now and we need to use it!  If we can defund Planned Parenthood at the Federal level, it will be one of the biggest pro-life victories we have ever experienced.

Planned Parenthood receives over $500 million in tax dollars each year.  Over $400 million of those tax dollars come from the Federal level and the rest comes from the states.  While the Hyde Amendment prevents Federal tax dollars from paying directly for abortion, money is fungible.  The Federal tax dollars Planned Parenthood receives are used to free up other money for abortion.

Recently, U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan committed to defunding Planned Parenthood during a CNN Town Hall on January 12, 2017.  The wheels are in motion for a major pro-life victory, but the votes are very close!  We can defund by using a reconciliation process in the U.S. Senate to prevent pro-choice Senators from doing a filibuster, but we must get every pro-life vote in the U.S. House and U.S. Senate to make that happen!

Petition Text
Dear Speaker Ryan and Majority Leader McConnell,  

Last year, the U.S. Congress learned what many pro-lifers have suspected and feared for years: Planned Parenthood is selling the dismembered remains of aborted babies for cash. This is clearly in violation of federal law.

Despite video and other evidence to support this assertion, Congress voted to fund Planned Parenthood with hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars in 2016.

This year, with a strong pro-life majority in Congress and a new pro-life president in the White House, there is absolutely no excuse for the continued funding of this anti-life organization. It is time for Congress to act against the criminal enterprise known as Planned Parenthood.

As a concerned Illinois citizen, I stand with other Pro-Life Illinois voters to demand that you immediately terminate by any means all federal government-funding of Planned Parenthood.
