Subject: Big victory for those seeking to protect the lives and rights of the unborn
President Donald J. Trump just signed the first pro-life law in 14 years!
10th District Congressman Patrick McHenry joined with 11th District Representative Mark Meadows to support H.J. Resolution 43 in overturning former President Barack Obama’s last-minute gift of taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood. It was his intent to force states to fund this pro-abortion non-profit through Title X – that would have amounted to $60 million dollars coming out of our pockets and going into theirs. States now have the right to say “NO!” to Planned Parenthood.
According to Congressman McHenry’s office, this is a big step toward the ultimate goal of the Republican Party – defunding the nation’s largest abortion business, Planned Parenthood, of every last one of our tax dollars.
Thanks is due to our two Congressman for their participation in this good effort – the best way to contain weeds is to grow good grass.
Please take time to express your appreciation to them both for their efforts to – it’s worth repeating – protect the lives and rights of the unborn.

SOME QUICK FACTS ON PLANNED PARENTHOOD
1) Though they sell their service focus as women’s health, Planned Parenthood is first and foremost in the abortion business. They are the major force in a frightening statistic – 60 million lives have been intercepted since Roe v. Wade.
2) Contrary to what they say, Planned Parenthood not only coordinates, supports and advocates abortion services, they also provide such services directly – 50% of which are done on teenagers and college-aged women.
3) Planned Parenthood commits 392 abortions for every one adoption referral it makes. They are not really about choice – they are about convenience. Part of the reason – abortions are a source of revenue, adoptions are not.
4) Planned Parenthood receives over a million dollars of tax-payer money every day.
