Thank you for recently taking action by contacting your Member of Congress and asking them to sign onto a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi defending pro-life riders.
Yesterday, the Jordan/Shuler letter was sent to Speaker Pelosi and released to the public with 180 Congressional signers — 157 Republicans and 23 Democrats.
Thank you for contacting your Representative. Because you took action with us, a broad coalition of Members of Congress made a public stand to defend our pro-life principles.
As we've mentioned before, the attacks on pro-life riders is the first attempt by the pro-abortion movement to pass the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) "by stealth".
It is so vital we do whatever we can to defend these vital amendments to federal budget bills and keep our tax dollars from being used to pay for abortion here in the United States and on our military bases worldwide. Repealing these laws is the first target of Planned Parenthood and their allies — and their first step toward pushing the FOCA agenda.
The full text of the letter with all of the signatures is available on the AUL Action blog (PDF).
We look forward to keeping you informed as things progress on Capitol Hill and in state legislatures across the country.
Yours for Life,
Charmaine Yoest, Ph.D.
