Late last Friday night, Congress and the White House were still buzzing with activity, working to negotiate the U.S. budget to prevent government “shutdown”. News reports late Friday night focused on Planned Parenthood, calling it the final point of disagreement between the House and Senate. It’s reported that President Obama told House Leadership “nope, zero” – that he would allow “zero” budget cuts to Planned Parenthood, no matter the consequences. Pro-abortion forces spun this debate as “whether or not to fund women’s healthcare”, and “the House wants to shut down the government to hurt women.”
The truth is: the budget for the United States of America came down to funding Planned Parenthood; a rampantly abusive and corrupt organization which kills over 300,000 of our unborn brothers and sisters. And President Obama and Senate Leadership proved that they would rather shut down the government, and stop paying the U.S. Military, instead of agreeing to make a single budget cut to the largest abortion chain in America.
But the budget battle is not over yet. The battle is still in the Senate.
As part of a budget compromise, the Senate will vote TOMORROW, Thursday, on an individual bill of whether or not to fund Planned Parenthood. Your Senator needs to hear from you now. Call your Senator’s office and remind them of the abuses at Planned Parenthood. Remind them that this is a human rights and a women’s health issue: that among many other abuses, Planned Parenthood has an a radical pro-abortion agenda, aborts over 330,000 unborn children every year, and covers up the abuse and trafficking of young girls.

Planned Parenthood and their allies are still reeling from our investigative work and videos. Live Action’s work over the past three months has electrified the pro-life movement and inspired thousands. The nation was shocked when we exposed the horrific cover-up of child sex-trafficking rings by Planned Parenthood employees. And just recently, in a desperate attempt to save their tax funding, Planned Parenthood went on record claiming credit for phony services – which Live Action exposed in our mammogram investigation.
As Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards says, our work and the movement in Congress and across the country has been “the most devastating attack” that Planned Parenthood has ever known. But our work to expose the truth is far from over: in fact, it’s just begun. The cover up of abuse, the victimization of the vulnerable, the the killing the most vulnerable in our nation must be investigated, and exposed.
Call your Senator today and make sure they know the truth about Planned Parenthood.
