Good afternoon everyone! Hope you are doing well today. We just have some reminders and some parish news for you today:
Congress is moving forward on paying for abortion with your tax dollars! Babies and their moms urgently need your help.
The House Committee on Appropriations advanced bills last week that would essentially force taxpayer dollars to pay for abortions in D.C., through foreign assistance, and in federal employee health plans.
And this is just the start.
Easily send a quick, pre-written email by clicking the button below. Your members of Congress need to hear from you before they go any further.
Don't let Congress vote for an appropriations bill that includes taxpayer funding for elective abortion!
