As early as tomorrow (Thursday), the Senate could vote on a bill to defund Planned Parenthood and repeal key parts of ObamaCare using a budget procedure called "reconciliation." Through this process, passing this measure only requires 51 votes in the Senate. Debate in the chamber begins today, with amendments and a final vote expected on Thursday.

The Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act (H.R. 3762) will cut close to 80% of the taxpayer dollars given to Planned Parenthood. While the special rules on Reconciliation cannot be used to defund ALL federal funding for Planned Parenthood, it CAN be used to cut millions from their pocket.

Repealing major portions of ObamaCare would also be a huge pro-life victory. The ObamaCare provision would alleviate federal pressure on people and employers who are forced to purchase health insurance which they may find objectionable, like abortion.

Please urge your senators to vote FOR the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act; and ask them to support defunding Planned Parenthood and to repeal as much of ObamaCare as the budget rules allow.
