PLS CALL: Congressional Hearing &
PP activists descend on Capitol Hill
Today, Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards will testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. (Watch live, 10 a.m. EST.) She is being called to account after a series of videos from the Center for Medical Progress showed her organization selling the body parts of aborted babies. To draw attention away from those barbaric practices, Planned Parenthood is planning a “#PinkOut Day,” in which its activists swarm the Capitol and blanket social media.
Congressmen will hear many outrageous claims from Planned Parenthood supporters, but we have one simple message: taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to fund Planned Parenthood. When thousands of Federally Qualified Health Centers provide more comprehensive services, and outnumber Planned Parenthood clinics across the nation 20 to 1, there’s no reason why the federal government should spend money on an organization whose primary mission is to profit from performing abortions.Congress needs to hear this message from you TODAY so that Members of Congress don’t believe that the activists parroting Planned Parenthood lies speak for the public. Please take a minute to pick up the phone, call your representative and senators, and tell them that the federal government should not fund Planned Parenthood.
