Attach to Must-Have Legislation
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, July 30, 2015 (Cincinnati, OH): Reports are that the U.S. Senate will vote on a bill to defund Planned Parenthood next week.
“A U.S. Senate bill to defund Planned Parenthood is a nice but ineffective gesture,” said Paula Westwood, Executive Director, Right to Life of Greater Cincinnati. “We need legislation that will truly stop our tax-dollars from keeping this abortion chain in business.“
Legislative analysts note that a standalone Senate bill to defund Planned Parenthood will fall just short of votes to pass, or if it does pass, be vetoed by President Obama, leaving Planned Parenthood free to receive government funding regardless of evidence of trafficking in baby body parts.
To effectively defund Planned Planned Parenthood, an amendment to do so must be attached to must-have legislation difficult to veto.
ACTION: Please contact your U.S. Senator TODAY at senate.gov with this message:
A standalone Senate bill to defund Planned Parenthood is ineffective. Due to mounting evidence of Planned Parenthood abortionists trafficking in aborted baby body parts, please take decisive action to defund this abortion chain with an amendment attached to must-have legislation difficult to veto.
