Betrayed (Liberty Counsel Action)

FROM: LIBERTY COUNSEL ACTION

GOP lawmakers betrayed all of us who helped elect lawmakers promising to Defund Planned Parenthood, then collapsing when presented with the opportunity. Late Thursday, our "Representatives" in the House struck a dirty deal with Democrats to FULLY FUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD in the omnibus spending bill. GOP Senators caved just hours later.

We had a glimmer of hope this morning when President Trump threatened to veto the omnibus bill, which would have forced a redraft of the budget legislation. Later, the President retracted his threat due to the measure's substantial increases in military funding that he described as "a matter of national security."

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), a proponent of Planned Parenthood, called the omnibus spending package a "darn good bill." House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi trumpeted, "Democrats won!" What does that tell you about the bill that doesn't take a penny away from Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider?

+ + This is totally unacceptable!

We cannot and must not back down now. If you are greatly disappointed to see both the GOP House and GOP Senate pass a bill that ONCE AGAIN FULLY FUNDS PLANNED PARENTHOOD, take action with me!
 
Liberty Counsel Action will again call on the United States Congress to take up other legislation to end federal funding of any agency, including Planned Parenthood, that participates in abortion.

P.S. The "Defund Planned Parenthood and Defend Life!" petition states:

I am calling for an immediate end to all taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood and other organizations that perform or promote abortion. American citizens should not be forced to fund abortion. Also, in the wake of shocking evidence exposing the horrific practices of Planned Parenthood, I am calling on Congress and the Trump Administration to fully investigate Planned Parenthood.
