The U.S. House has passed defund legislation and now the Senate is debating the bill. If you live in one of the following 11 states (AK, FL, IN, ME, MO, MT, NV, ND, OH, PA, WV), your senators below need to hear from you that NOW is the time to defund Planned Parenthood. Below, you can find your senators’ contact information, as well as suggested talking points so you can leave detailed messages for them. Even if you’ve previously written or emailed them, a few extra minutes out of your day can make all the difference!
- Tell the person answering the phone that you are a constituent and would like to speak to the legislative staffer in charge of budgetary or social issues. See the sample message below. If the legislative staffer is not available, still leave the following message with the receptionist:
- SAMPLE MESSAGE TO SHARE:
My name is ________ and I live in _____ (state). I urge Senator ___________ to use the current reconciliation bill to stop the hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars going to Planned Parenthood. Instead, redirect it to Federally Qualified Health Centers and Rural Health Clinics across the country. Those centers and clinics provide more primary and preventive health care services to women who need affordable care. They’re also more accessible, outnumbering Planned Parenthood locations by the thousands. Planned Parenthood’s own annual reports show that it does no mammograms and it does less than two percent of women’s Pap tests and cancer screenings in the U.S. It also offers almost no prenatal care to pregnant women, but it commits over a third of all abortions in America. Every day you delay redirecting that money, Planned Parenthood receives over $1.5 million from taxpayers like me to keep its doors open and kill another 887 preborn children. Thank you for passing my message on.
