Current Action Alerts
Stop Federal Funding of Planned Parenthood (updated on 9/1/2015)
The release of undercover videos showing a willingness by Planned Parenthood officials to traffic in fetal organs and tissue has quite properly stirred strong reactions in Congress and the general public. A bill “To prohibit Federal funding of Planned Parenthood Federation of America” was introduced in both House and Senate (S. 1881, H.R. 3301). Consideration of the Senate bill was blocked but can be brought up again. Please contact your Senators and Representative today!
Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act
Senate Action Expected (updated on 6/17/2015)
The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (S. 1553) was introduced in the Senate on June 11 by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). The identical bill passed the House of Representatives on May 13, 2015, by a vote of 242 to 184. Please urge your Senators to support this bill.
Protect Rights of Conscience and Religious Liberty (updated on 6/8/2015)
Now is the time to urge Congress to work to enact critically important conscience protections this year. Such protections will likely be included in a soon-to-be-introduced appropriations bill, but House members should be urged to ensure that it remains a high priority and goes into law. Senators should also be called upon to help ensure passage of these needed protections. Please take action today to contact Congress.
Please Support the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act! (updated on 1/22/2015)
On January 22, the U.S. House of Representatives approved the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2015 (H.R. 7). The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act places in permanent law a consistent federal policy restricting the funding and promotion of abortion. The Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act requires qualified health plans under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to inform consumers about their abortion coverage and abortion payments. Focus now turns to the Senate.
