De-Fund Planned Parenthood

Click here for an easy way to contact your congressional representatives and ask them to de-fund Planned Parenthood. Here is the summary.
Between 2007 and 2008, Planned Parenthood received $350 million of your tax dollars. Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in the country. In 2008 alone they performed 290,000 abortions throughout the country. Planned Parenthood received millions of dollars through this program last year and you can be sure they'll ask this Congress for an even greater funding increase this year. By law, Planned Parenthood clinics must offer referrals for abortions and dispense all forms of contraception. These clinics are not required to notify parents of minors who seek abortions or contraception. This loophole allows sexual predators to access contraception and obtain abortions to cover up the abuse of their victims. Congressman Mike Pence will be offering an amendment to the Labor-Health and Human Services Appropriations bill that will keep Planned Parenthood from receiving government funds. Please sign in below and tell your Representative to support Mike Pence’s amendment to De-Fund Planned Parenthood. Tell them you don’t want your tax dollars to go to organizations that perform abortions.
