Call your U.S. senators and urge them to support the Graham-Cassidy health care reform bill!

NRLC Action Alert
Sometime between September 25 and September 30, Republican leaders in the U.S. Senate will make a last-ditch attempt to pass sweeping legislation to repeal and replace the worst elements of Obamacare, and remove federal funds from Planned Parenthood.

National Right to Life strongly supports this legislation, which is known as the Graham-Cassidy Amendment to H.R. 1628. This bill would repeal the worst elements of Obamacare, including a rollback of Obamacare’s federal subsidies to health plans that pay for elective abortion. The bill would also block most federal funding for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.

A razer-close vote is expected. Indeed, the bill may pass or fail by a single vote.

Click here to enter your zip code into the “Call Now” box. You will then be shown the appropriate phone number to reach the office of one of your two U.S. senators, along with short talking points that you can refer to when the senator’s staff person answers. After you finish delivering your short message in favor of the Graham-Cassidy Amendment, you’ll have the option to send National Right to Life a short “feedback” report about your call. You will then be shown the phone number for your second U.S. senator, and will repeat the process. Both calls can be placed in a matter of a few minutes.

Please act today! Under Senate rules, the deadline for this bill to pass or die is September 30. This is the last chance this year, and probably for years to come, to replace Obamacare and defund Planned Parenthood!
