Dems say no deal unless your tax dollars continue to fund abortions

WASHINGTON, DC – The Washington Post is reporting that talks between Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R-OH), Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid (D-NV) and President Obama have stalled due to the issue of federal taxpayer dollars for Planned Parenthood.

“Congressional negotiators working through the night on a budget deal largely agreed to an amount of spending cuts, but their talks were stymied by two Republican policy provisions on abortion and the environment, increasing the likelihood of a government shutdown beginning this weekend, Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) said Thursday morning,” reports the Washington Post.

Reid also said, “It’s not realistic to [delay this funding debate by] dealing with abortion. It’s not fair to the American people.”

Basically Reid has made the decision to either continue to spend your tax dollars to support abortion, or to shut down the government.

The Democratic Caucus made up of Senators and members of the U.S. House decided over a week ago to shutdown the government in order to seek political gain by blaming Speaker of the House, Boehner and the Tea Party. Now, they refuse to budge on your hard-earned tax dollars being used to pay for abortions.

It’s time to let your voice be heard again call your Member of Congress and let them know how you feel: HERE

The Obama administration has said time and again that no federal tax dollars are being used to fund abortion. This is simply a lie. Refusal to remove Planned Parenthood funding proves that lie.

Right now, Planned Parenthood is busing in activists from across the country for a massive rally and lobbying day in Washington.

Call your Member of Congress. E-mail like-minded family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers and ask them to stand for Life by calling their Member of Congress as well.

Make your voice heard.
