Support HR 614

HR 614 is a bill being sponsored by Mike Pence that would cut funding to Planned Parenthood.
Pence introduced the bill on January 20 with the following statement:
"As most Americans know, it is simply morally wrong to end an unborn human life by abortion. But it is also morally wrong to take the taxpayer dollars of millions of pro-life Americans and use them to promote abortion at home or abroad. Many Americans fail to recognize the largest abortion provider in America is also the largest recipient of federal taxpayer dollars through Title X—this should not be. Yesterday, with more than 60 cosponsors, I re-introduced the ‘Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act,’ a bill that would deny any federal funding to Planned Parenthood of America. On this dark anniversary, let us rededicate ourselves."

As of yesterday eight more representatives have lent their support to the bill raising the total to 69 supporters a list of representatives can be found here. Don't see your Representatives name? Then give them a call! Remember there are plenty of Blue Dog Democrats out their who are pro-life but they need to now that the people are behind them so even if your representative doesn't have an R after their name still give them a call. This is an uphill battle but in the face of FOCA everything counts.
