U.S. House to Vote Friday on Pro-Life Bill

The U.S. House of Representatives will vote Friday, October 23, on the "pro-life reconciliation bill" (H.R. 3762).  This is a fast-track bill containing multiple pro-life provisions.

Your immediate action is needed in support of this historic pro-life measure!

H.R.  3762 is a special once-a-year measure called the "reconciliation bill."  Unlike almost every other kind of bill, the "reconciliation bill" cannot be filibustered in the U.S. Senate -- so it can pass with only 51 votes, rather than 60 (of 100 senators).  Republicans currently hold a narrow majority in the U.S. Senate, 54-46.

But before the bill can be considered by the Senate, it first must pass the House on October 23.

The bill contains two major sections:

-- The bill would block, for one year, most federal payments to Planned Parenthood.  At least 89% of federal funding of Planned Parenthood would be blocked by this bill -- about $400 million.

-- The bill would repeal a number of major components of the Obamacare health law, including two of the major provisions that will lead to rationing of lifesaving care:  the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) and the "excess benefits tax."

Vote in Favor of H.R. 3762
I urge you to vote in favor of the "pro-life reconciliation bill," H.R. 3762, which will reach the U.S. House floor on October 23.  This bill would block most funding to Planned Parenthood, the nation's largest abortion provider.  It would also repeal two components of Obamacare that will produce rationing of lifesaving care -- the Independent Payment Advisory Board, and the "excess benefits tax."  Please support this vital bill on procedural votes and on final passage.  This is very important to me.  Please inform me how you intend to vote on the pro-life reconciliation bill.
