RARTL Action Alert: Advocate today for confirming Judge Gorsuch

States should be allowed to allocate health money as they choose, except when it would deprive Planned Parenthood???  What???

Remember when some states decided to redirect Title X funding from Planned Parenthood to community-type health facilities?

Remember that the then-President Obama put out a rule that said they couldn’t take money away from Planned Parenthood?

A legislative measure labelled H.J. Res. 43 reverses the Obama administration rule.

An action alert on February 15, 2017, urged pro-lifers to call in to the House of Representatives to say “Title X funding should be used to support community health centers, not Planned Parenthood.”

The resolution passed in the House , with all but two Republicans voting for the resolution and all but two Democrats voting against it.  Since Republicans have a large majority in the House, it passed with a large margin.

It now goes to the Senate, where it is expected to pass, and then goes to President Trump’s desk.  He is expected to sign it.

Congratulations, pro-lifers!  And stay tuned for the action alert for the Senate.
