Background: Senate Republicans have scheduled a vote this Thursday (today) to remove all federal funding for abortion.  The legislation establishes a permanent, government-wide prohibition on federal funding for abortion, prohibits federal subsidies in the form of Obamacare tax credits for health plans that include abortion, and strengthens disclosure requirements for plans that include abortion. (source). Senate Democrats intend to filibuster the bill, so your calls and emails may reach them in time to allow them to relay our outrage.

Script: Not on our watch!  It is completely unacceptable to erode contraceptive care funding for legally permissible contraceptive services in America.  Please add my name to those who oppose S. 109, the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2019.”
