Ask President Trump to Veto Pro-Abortion Spending Bill
 
Ask President Trump to Veto Pro-Abortion Spending Bill
Written By David E. Smith   |   09.27.18

We are very sad to report that the U.S. House of Representatives voted last night, by a vote of 361 to 61 (with 6 not voting) to pass a spending bill that includes taxpayer-funding for Planned Parenthood, which is still getting around $500 million a year in federal money.

What is even more disturbing is the fact that the entire Illinois Congressional Delegation–pro-life Republicans and pro-abortion Democrats alike–voted in unison to approve these appropriations. This despite the repeated strong appeals from pro-life groups in Illinois to defund the abortion giant.

Ironically, Planned Parenthood has been very vocal about spending millions of dollars in the midterm elections to target pro-life candidates for federal office. Why would supposedly pro-life representatives subsidize a wicked organization that is intent on promoting pro-abortion opponents?

Take ACTION: Click HERE to urge President Donald Trump to veto this legislation when it arrives on his desk. Ask the president to uphold the first unalienable right to life conferred on us by our Creator.
