Behind closed doors at the recent retreat of Republican lawmakers, on the day of the March for Life no less, freshman Congressman John Faso (R-NY-19) advocated that Republicans in Congress cave to the big abortion lobby and pull a provision defunding Planned Parenthood from the Republicans’ Obamacare repeal bill.
Now is not the time for Republicans to get cold feet! We need your help to hold weak-kneed Republican lawmakers like Congressman Faso accountable.
House Speaker Paul Ryan has repeatedly promised that the Obamacare repeal reconciliation bill will also contain a provision that will block the lion’s share of federal subsidies for Planned Parenthood, just as they successfully did last year and passed through the Senate with 51 votes! While President Obama vetoed the reconciliation bill last year, we now have a pro-life president in Donald Trump who has indicated that he would sign this legislation.
Congressman Faso has no excuse for advocating that Congress continue to give federal taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood, the scandal-ridden largest abortion provider in the nation, which has been implicated in the gruesome trafficking of baby body parts and inhumane treatment of mothers and their unborn children.
Congressman Faso claimed defunding Planned Parenthood is a “gigantic political trap” because then “millions of people on social media [will] come to Planned Parenthood’s defense.” Let’s show him that exactly the opposite is true! Pro-life Republicans across the country just won stunning victories nationwide, despite Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer-subsidized political machine spending more than $30 million in the last election to defeat them. The millions of conservatives and pro-lifers who just elected a unified pro-life government on the most pro-life GOP platform ever will accept nothing less than the reconciliation bill that passed last year which defunded over 80% of federal money to Planned Parenthood and dismantled major portions of Obamacare, including its subsidies of elective abortion.
Please call Congressman Faso at (202) 225-5614 and urge him to protect babies and the consciences of the American taxpayers, and not to cave to the big abortion lobby and fund Planned Parenthood on the Obamacare repeal bill.
Voting NO will continue the Obamacare disaster and the forced partnership between taxpayers and Planned Parenthood.
