The Susan B. Anthony List is excited to be holding a joint press conference on Capitol Hill today to call for the passage of the “Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act” to defund Planned Parenthood.
SBA will be joining with Live Action, Lila Rose, Rep. Mike Pence, the Pro-Life Women’s Caucus, and other pro-life women’s groups in the Expose Planned Parenthood coalition effort for defunding in light of the Live Action videos released over the last few weeks.
The press conference will take place at 11:30 a.m. in the Cannon House Office Building. SBA will post video of the event later this afternoon.
SBA President Marjorie Dannenfelser will be speaking, along with Lila Rose of Live Action, Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America, Rep. Pence, Rep. Jean Schmidt, Rep. Virginia Foxx, Rep. Vicki Hartzler, Rep. Renee Ellmers, Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle, Rep. Andy Harris, and Rep. Martha Roby.
The “Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act”, sponsored by Rep. Pence, would stop the flow of yearly flow of more than $350 million to Planned Parenthood. From 2008 to 2009, Planned Parenthood performed more abortions than ever, nearly 325,000.
Please call your congressional representatives today and tell them to support the “Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act” and end taxpayer funding of abortion once and for all.
