Contact your Rep. now to vote YES on Pence amendment to defund Planned Parenthood and reduce abortions

Urgent action alert
This morning, February 18, the U.S. House of Representatives will vote on an amendment offered by Congressman Mike Pence (R-In.) that would deny all federal funds for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc.
Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider in the U.S., reporting 324,008 abortions in 2008 alone. Abortions are a moneymaker for the billion-dollar business enterprise, reportedly accounting for a third of Planned Parenthood's income from its clinics. Incredibly enough, U.S. taxpayers provide another third of Planned Parenthood's income, thanks to their pro-abortion allies in Congress and the White House. Media reports indicate that the "pro-choice" Planned Parenthood has now mandated that all of its affiliates must do abortions.
What you can do now
Call or email your U.S. House member and urge a YES vote on the Pence Amendment Number 11 to H.R. 1 (the Continuing Resolution bill that would keep the government funded through Sep. 30). Just go to http://www.capwiz.com/nrlc/home/ and click on the Action Alert.
The National Right to Life Committee provides more information on a letter on its web site. The letter includes a suggestion for a message you can deliver to the staff person who takes your call.
Thank you for taking a moment so that many more can live a  lifetime.
