Senate Rejects House’s Attempt to Defund PPFA!

Hats off to the Senate, which today rejected the House’s budget proposal that aimed to defund Planned Parenthood and family planning. WOO HOO!

According to an action alert I received from NARAL Pro-Choice America, the organization is planning a national lobby day as the War on Women continues:

Believe me, this is not over – not by a mile. We have to harness that energy to stop the entire anti-choice War on Women. That’s right – we still face extreme bills in Congress that could change women’s access to abortion and birth control forever. In fact, today a key House committee scheduled a third legislative hearing on H.R.3, the extreme “Stupak on Steroids” legislation, for next week.

Our next step is organizing a 5,000-person pro-choice lobby day in Washington, D.C. on April 7. We will be joined by our partners at Planned Parenthood and other major pro-choice organizations.

Great job — and many thanks — to all the pro-woman, pro-family planning activists who spoke out against the House’s attempt to defund Title X! Let’s keep it up!!!
