Action Needed – Call Congress today to Defund Planned Parenthood

This week, the battle to strip Planned Parenthood of its $363.2 MILLION in annual taxpayer funding reaches a critical step in the U.S. House of Representatives.

For the third time, House members will be crafting and voting on a Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund the government through the remainder of the 2011 fiscal year. We must keep pressure on to make sure that the Pence Amendment — which defunds Planned Parenthood — is included in this CR and that all pro-life members hold strong, ONLY voting for a CR that defunds Planned Parenthood.

Please immediately let your Representative know the importance of defunding Planned Parenthood — even if you’ve called or e-mailed before.  Go here to contact your Representative Now.

Also, if possible, invite your local pastor or priest to come with you this Wednesday to the local district office of your Representative to ask them to stand for LIFE, stopping the flow of taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood — which aborted 332,278 innocent children in the last reported year.

Just a simple visit to your House of Representative’s office will mean a lot, sending a strong signal back to Washington, D.C. that millions of pro-life voters are paying attention! (Click here to find the address for your Representative’s district office.)

This Thursday, abortion advocates are planning to gather in Washington, D.C. to angrily demand that Planned Parenthood funding be protected at all costs. They will be specifically targeting new members of Congress and those who have weak pro-life records.

This is a critical moment when you need to make your voice heard loud and clear:

“NO TAX $$ FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD!”

Call NOW – this is the moment we’ve all been working for!

For Life,

Erik Whittington
Executive Director, Rock For Life

P.S. – After you have called your Representative, call House Speaker Boehner and ask him to make sure Congress de-funds Planned Parenthood in the next Continuing Resolution Vote! Click here to contact Speaker Boehner.

Defund Planned Parenthood Video Contest Winners Announced

Live Action & Students for Life of America recently announced the winners of their “Tell Congress” Video contest.  We are proud co-sponsors.

This first video, “Defund Planned Parenthood” is an extraordinary personal testimony not only against abortion but against Planned Parenthood.  This young lady had three of her siblings aborted thanks to Planned Parenthood.  Also, Planned Parenthood allowed for the continued abuse of her mother by her father.  Her father is now finally behind bars – no thanks to Planned Parenthood.  So much for being pro-woman…

 

The second place video, “Rap to Defund Planned Parenthood” well, speaks for itself. Great lyrics!

 

The third place winner, “My Story.” is a young lady who posted a video documenting her struggle as a young person, pregnant, scared but who defies the odds and choose life for her son.  Watch this for some great footage.  She also uses two great pro-life songs for background music: Broken Inside (We As Human) & Finest Mistake (Skyhawk Drive) both from previous Rock for Life compilations.

 

Finally, the fourth place video, “Noelle’s Message to Congress: Defund Planned Parenthood” is a young lady, Noelle (age 13) who clearly articulates the reasons to defund Planned Parenthood.  She can clearly articulate the reasons better than most adults!  The producer of the video is Jesus Disciple, a pro-life rap artist who has been on our compilation CDs.

 

Congrats to all!

What is she scared of?

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards sent out an email after the elections that said the following:

“Yesterday was a difficult day…There’s no getting around it: the results of yesterday’s election are truly alarming.”

She also added that “extremists” will “pursue a dangerous agenda.”  Really?  Isn’t it her organization that is extreme?  Planned Parenthood believes in abortion on demand, everywhere, every stage of life (in-utero) up until the moment of birth, paid for by US Taxpayers, abortion as birth control, accepting donations from racists, covering up child sex abuse, lying to women and lying about basic human embryology.  THAT is extreme.

Dangerous agenda? Seriously? What can be more dangerous to a small, defenseless human being than an abortion?  Who can be more dangerous to that person than an abortionist?

So what exactly is she scared of?  What does she suspect that the 2011-2012 US Congress will do to harm her abortion agenda?
