Override President Obama’s veto and defund Planned Parenthood!

Call your member of Congress now to override President Obama’s
veto and defund Planned Parenthood!

February 1, 2016

Thanks to the efforts of pro-lifers such as yourself, the House of Representatives and Senate both passed H.R. 3762, the bill that would deny Planned Parenthood most of its federal funding and repeal key parts of Obamacare. 
Barack Obama, as expected from the most pro-abortion President in history, vetoed the measure.
But now we have another chance to have H.R. 3762 enacted into law!  The House of Representatives has scheduled a vote on Tuesday, February 2, to override the President’s veto.
You know from past Action Alerts that H.R. 3762 would redirect about $400 million in taxpayer money from Planned Parenthood to community health centers that do not deal in abortion.  It would also repeal major sections of Obamacare, the President’s health care system that has been both a boon to Planned Parenthood and an attack on religious liberty.
I won’t pretend that overriding the President’s veto will be easy.  Two-thirds of Congress must approve the veto override for it to be successful.  But the more votes cast in favor of defunding Planned Parenthood this year, the more pressure that there will be on next President and the next Congress to stop our forced financing of the nation’s biggest abortion business.
Please call your Congressional Representative to let him or her know that you want President Obama’s veto overridden and H.R. 3762 enacted into law.
We have never before come this close to defunding Planned Parenthood.  Please call now!
