Urge your Senators to Defund Planned Parenthood and Repeal/Replace Obamacare
June 06, 2017 - Tuesday

New shocking undercover expose videos have emerged showing high ranking Planned Parenthood officials and others at a National Abortion Federation conference talking about gruesome late term abortions in the most horrific of terms.

The time for action to defund Planned Parenthood and to repeal and replace Obamacare is now, and the Senate's Better Care Reconciliation Act (H.R. 1628) is the best vehicle to do it!

Here are disturbing samples from the new undercover video:

"An eyeball just fell down into my lap, and that is gross!" [laughter from the crowd]
- Dr. Uta Landy, Founder of the Consortium of Abortion Providers (CAPS), Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA)

"I might ask for a second set of forceps to hold the body at the cervix and pull off a leg or two, so it's not PBA [partial-birth abortion]."
- Dr. Ann Schutt-Aine, Director of Abortion Services for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast

As a nation, we are without excuse in continuing to fund these atrocities with our tax dollars. Moreover, days after the new video's release, Planned Parenthood released its annual report, showing that while its abortions and taxpayer funding increased, its prenatal care, contraception, and screenings decreased.

Under the Better Care Reconciliation Act, pro-lifers will see over $390 million (over 85%) of federal taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood rescinded and Obamacare gutted. The bill's "replace" components include funding restrictions on elective abortion for the new stability fund for health insurance of over $100 billion. The Better Care Reconciliation Act must also not indefinitely subsidize abortion, and the draft bill contains restrictions on the use of the Obamacare credits to pay for health insurance plans that cover elective abortion. While we remain very concerned that the pro-life restriction on the health insurance tax credits could be removed from the bill for procedural or political reasons, we are confident that the Senate will ultimately move forward with our pro-life priorities intact. As a special budget "reconciliation" bill, the Better Care Reconciliation Act can pass with just 51 votes and bypass any filibuster from the Democrats!

Please call your Senators at (202) 224-3121 to urge them to defund Planned Parenthood, repeal and replace Obamacare, and stop taxpayer funding of abortion in the Senate's Better Care Reconciliation Act (H.R. 1628). After you've called, you can also email them by following this link.

Thank you for your efforts in defense of life and the family!
