Action Alert: Contact Your Member of Congress – Defund Planned Parenthood

NCValuesLogoforEmails.124708The NC Values Coalition has issued an action alert.  They want to keep your federal tax dollars out of the hands of Planned Parenthood.

Here is what they had to say in an e-mail sent to their mailing list:

URGENT: Email Your Representative!

The new year is off to a bang with an immediate opportunity to take action on pro-life legislation.

TAKE ACTION NOW: Email your House Rep today and ask them to vote YES on the reconciliation bill that defunds Planned Parenthood.

Both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives recently passed reconciliation legislation that stops taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood and re-directs their funding to entities that provide real health care for women, as well as repealing major sections of Obamacare.

ScreenShot2015-12-02at3.13.56PM.151423The House now has an opportunity to vote to send this pro-life and anti-ObamaCare bill to the president’s desk.

The North Carolina Values Coalition worked to keep North Carolina tax dollars from going to Planned Parenthood here in our state.  But, without stripping Planned Parenthood of federal tax dollars, your taxes are still helping to support the nation’s largest abortion provider.

While some Republicans didn’t think the bill went far enough, it was supported by national pro-life groups and key conservative groups. It does serious damage to ObamaCare and would remove funds for Planned Parenthood—which obtains over $400 million per year in Medicaid alone.

We must not allow the perfect to get in the way of the good. Forward progress in defunding Planned Parenthood and forward progress on dismantling Obamacare is far superior to no progress at all.
Your Representatives must hear from you for this action to pass. Please take the time TONIGHT to email them to vote YES on the reconcilliation bill that defunds Planned Parenthood.
