Pro-Life Activist Leaders Ask for No Legislation that Funds Planned Parenthood

Over 20 national pro-life activist leaders send Speaker Boehner letter asking that no legislation will pass House that funds Planned Parenthood.

An excerpt from the letter:

"Mr. Speaker, we are looking to you and the Republican members of the House of Representatives to embrace the 'Culture of Life' by courageously voting to defund Planned Parenthood and assuring the public that Planned Parenthood will not get even one penny of taxpayer money.  This would involve not just passing a bill to defund Planned Parenthood; it would include giving Americans the assurance that no piece of legislation that funds this corrupt organization will pass the House."

Rev. Patrick, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition in Washington, D.C., states;

"We are calling upon Speaker Boehner to embrace social justice and human rights for all and give public assurances that no piece of legislation will pass the House that funds Planned Parenthood.

"Recent Planned Parenthood expose videos have revealed what we have known for years. That is, Planned Parenthood has no regard for human life and treats women as a commodity.  Speaker Boehner we do not need a pro-life President to defund Planned Parenthood but rather courageous, moral and principled Republican leadership."
