Senator vows to block ObamaCare repeal (LCAction)

Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine has all-but vowed to block any Republican efforts to pass an ObamaCare repeal that also defunds Planned Parenthood. She said she will insist on an amendment that strikes from the bill any language that defunds Planned Parenthood. This is critical because Republicans can only lose TWO VOTES and still pass any form of ObamaCare repeal through the Senate.

This battle is just now heating up but it is clear that we must rally an army of grassroots citizens who will demand that any ObamaCare repeal also defunds Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry.

Please take a moment right now to sign our REPEAL OBAMACARE/DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD petition, and see below for more details.

We are bracing for a MAJOR LEGISLATIVE SHOWDOWN in the Senate over the current efforts to Repeal and Replace ObamaCare — and the deciding issue could prove to be defunding Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry.

As you know, last week the House passed a bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare that eliminates the onerous mandates and taxes of this failed takeover of our healthcare system. This bill is facing intense opposition in the Senate, in large part due to the pro-life provisions that defund Planned Parenthood for the coming year and block the funding of abortion providers.

Already two Republican Senators have expressed that they oppose the repeal provisions that defund Planned Parenthood, and at least three additional GOP Senators are being targeted by the pro-abortion lobby. Just three of these abortion-leaning Senators could block the ObamaCare repeal altogether!

+ + ACTION: Tell Congress To Repeal ObamaCare AND Defund Planned Parenthood!

Liberty Counsel Action is calling on Congress to pass a repeal/replace bill that also defunds Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. We want to gather at least 50,000 petitions this month for delivery to key Senate leaders — including Republicans who are publicly defending Planned Parenthood funding.

If you want to see ObamaCare’s oppressive mandates and taxes repealed AND Planned Parenthood defunded, then please take action now! Click here or on the image below to automatically have your name included in our “Repeal ObamaCare/Defund Planned Parenthood” Petition:


Liberty Counsel Action is considering this Repeal/Defund effort to be our top legislative priority for the first half of this year. The Repeal bill removes the oppressive mandates of the ObamaCare scheme and eliminates billions of dollars in forced-compliance taxes.

In addition, the House-passed bill is one of the boldest pro-life measures we have seen. The repeal bill that passed the House:

–Strips away Planned Parenthood’s main pipeline of funding through Medicaid.
–Provides over $400 million for community-based health centers that do not perform abortions.
–Prohibits the use of tax credits for insurance plans that cover abortion.

If this repeal measure passes, pro-life citizens will no longer be forced to subsidize with our tax dollars insurance plans that pay for abortions!

For many years, Liberty Counsel Action has fought against ObamaCare’s oppressive system. We have been on the leading edge of the fight to keep our tax dollars from funding Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. We must insist that the Senate pass the House repeal bill.

Please take action today. Sign the “Repeal And Defund” petition and then share it with your friends.
