In Pennsylvania's

Are we are failing to ask those who supposedly share our pro life values to follow through?



Pa’s Delegation in D.C.
Instead of defunding Planned Parenthood, the 9/28/16 CR gave it a raise! (cf, LifeSiteNew, 9/29/16; See http://clerk.house. gov/evs/2016/ roll573.xml http://www.senate. gov/legislative/ LIS/roll_call_lists/ roll_call_vote_ cfm.cfm? congress=114& session=2& vote=00151)

Clearly, we need to be looking more deeply on pro life issues than National Right to Life's Scorecards!  While their high scoring candidates may very well be superior choices to their opponents, we need to demand that they truly represent us in a pro life manners! 


We especially need to tell Representatives Glenn Thompson, Ryan Costello, Pat Meehan, Mike Fitzpatrick, Bill Shuster, Lou Barletta, Charlie Dent, and Tim Murphy how disappointed we are with their CR (continuing resolution) votes, which effectively contributed to giving Planned Parenthood a raise!

We especially need to tell Senators Casey and Toomey how disappointed we are with their failures to stand up and co-sponsor the Conscience Protection Act and their own CR votes!
