Defund Planned Parenthood

July 27, 2015

Have you been following the Planned Parenthood scandal?

We have.

All of us here at the American Conservative Union (ACU) feel disgusted and outraged as we react to the recent Planned Parenthood videos exposing their organ-harvesting-for-dollars program.   Together with millions of conservatives around the nation, we seek to be part of a larger effort to defund Planned Parenthood.

Will you join us?

We hope so.
The first thing you can do is tell your Congressman to support H.R. 3134!  Defund Planned Parenthood!
The proposed H.R. 3134 legislation has the support of 80 original cosponsors and would place an immediate moratorium on all federal funding of Planned Parenthood for the span of one year while Congress conducts a full investigation into the organization’s activities.

Call Congress at (202) 224-3121, ask for your Congressman by name, and make your voice heard today!

ACU is helping to lead the charge to defund Planned Parenthood. If, after you call your Congressman, you feel moved to make a generous donation to support ACU’s effort to fight back against the abortion lobby, it would make a huge difference. In order for ACU to continue to push Congress to pass H.R. 3134 and defund Planned Parenthood, ACU needs your support today!

Join ACU and conservative politicians – including almost all of the Republican Presidential candidates – in opposing Planned Parenthood!

“We have in our economy I think a particular obligation to protect innovators. To protect the little guy who is inventing the next great invention that will transform the world that we don’t know what it is we don’t understand where it might be going and yet it represents a threat to the status quo. A threat to the giant corporations of today because they are in their garage starting the company that will become the giant corporation of tomorrow.”
