Please act on this in support of Congressman Pence's efforts to de-fund the largest abortion provider in America.
Congressman Pence filed an amendment today to the appropriations bill that funds the Dept. of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Title X Family Planning funding. The amendment would stop HHS’ Family Planning funding (Title X) from going to Planned Parenthood. As you know, Planned Parenthood is the largest recipient of Family Planning money and is also the largest abortion provider in America—this should not be. Although Title X cannot be used to directly pay for abortions, government financial assistance is a vital tool in offsetting operational costs, therefore freeing up money to provide more abortions.
The amendment simply reads, "None of the funds made available under this Act shall be available to Planned Parenthood for any purpose under Title X of the Public Health Services Act." The Pence Amendment does not prevent any federal funds from going to family planning organizations, and it does not cut any family planning funding. It simply ensures that Federal tax dollars are not used in any way by the largest abortion provider in America.
Please circulate this information as widely as possible. It has been filed with the Democrat-controlled Rules Committee. This Committee has the power to allow or prohibit a simple up-or-down vote on the Pence Amendment on the House floor.
If you would like to weigh in on this amendment, you can contact your Congressman as well as Democrat members of the Rules Committee at 202-225-9091 or at their offices. The links to each office are below:
