Dear CV Friend,
Your calls and your prayers worked! Planned Parenthood is hysterical.
Moments ago the U.S. House passed the Pence Amendment 240-185 ending federal funding for Planned Parenthood through the end of the year (don't worry, a permanent end to their funding is around the corner!).
This is a giant victory. But don't celebrate yet.
Once approved, the "Continuing Resolution" will head to the Senate where the votes needed to approve the Pence language are hanging by threads.
Chip in $10 today to help us put the heat on the Senate!
The momentum is on our side. Legislators are fired up and acting with courage. The majority of Americans – Republicans and many Democrats - are with us.
But the abortion lobby is preparing to pounce on the Senate. Think about it – they have over $360 million annually at stake!
Planned Parenthood will throw every dollar they have at the Senate to save their taxpayer-funded money line. They are opening new clinics everywhere – including massive abortion supercenters in Illinois and Houston and elsewhere – knowing that taxpayers will pick up the tab.
We can stop this. We must stop this.
Whatever funds we raise will be turned into radio, Internet and a massive grassroots lobbying campaign to fight for this legislation in the Senate. Many of the "swing votes" in the Senate are up for re-election in 2012, and they know this issue could decide their future.
Please chip in $5, $10, $100, or whatever you can today.
The Senate knows this legislation must be passed quickly or the government could be shut down.
Building a Culture of Life is difficult enough; the least we can do is stop sending our money to those fighting against us.
Before you do anything, please take a few seconds and say a prayer of thankgiving for today's vote. And pray for continued success as we head to the Senate.
Brian Burch, President
P.S. Question: Who is the biggest annual donor to Planned Parenthood? Answer: WE ARE! But that could end if we act now. The House has voted to put a stop to this outrage. Now the Senate must do the same.
We need your help to fund a massive campaign to put the pressure on the Senate.
