An action alert, a win, and some more action today

Today is a great day to be a prolifer! The theme today is taxpayer support for abortion, and there's three important items:

#1: ACTION ALERT - Lobbying needed TODAY on No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act 

The U.S. House of Representatives is considering legislation to make the Hyde Amendment permanent. The Hyde Amendment is annual legislation attached to the budget which prevents your tax dollars from paying directly for most abortions. The legislation could see a vote in the House as soon as tomorrow, January 24. ACTION NEEDED: Contact your U.S. House representative now and tell them: "Please vote YES on H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. A majority of Americans oppose our tax dollars being used to pay for abortions."

#2: President Trump reinstates Mexico City Policy 

This morning President Trump signed an order reinstating the Mexico City Policy, which stops your tax dollars from going to groups overseas that provide and promote abortion. The rule was first instituted through executive order by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. The order has been rescinded and reinstated by pro-abortion and pro-life presidents since then. Abortion will no longer be an American export!

#3: Don't forget day 9 of our Top 10 reasons to defund Planned Parenthood

Going with today's theme, don't forget to share information on how Planned Parenthood utilizes tax-funding to expand their abortion services.

Reason #9: More tax dollars and fewer services
