Pro-Life Bill Passes House, Texas Takes Action Against Planned Parenthood and 11th Video Released What about NM?
If you only watch 2 minutes of this.... you will be disgusted, plus crackdown on Planned Parenthood and more pro-life news.
The U.S. House voted to pass the pro-life reconciliation bill, H.R. 3762 by a vote of 240- 189. The bill will redirect $400 million from Planned Parenthood to comprehensive women's health centers throughout the country. The bill now moves to the Senate where it cannot be filibustered, with only 51 votes necessary to pass. NMAFL thanks Congressman Steve Pearce (NM CD-2) for voting for the measure, which addresses the concerns of New Mexicans and forced taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood's corrupt practices. Unfortunately, Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (NM CD-1), who has received $8k from Planned Parenthood's political arm voted down the measure along with Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (NM CD-3).
Earlier this week Texas officials notified Planned Parenthood they would no longer receive Medicaid funding and yesterday officials from the Office of Inspector General visited Planned Parenthood abortion facilities in San Antonio, Houston, and Dallas asking offices to turn over employee and patient records for inspection. The Texas Planned Parenthood chain recently settled to pay back $4.3 million in Medicaid fraud, among other alarming violations revealed in the Center for Medical Progress videos.
"It is long past time that inspectors, not just in Texas but across the country, step foot inside Planned Parenthood clinics across the nation, Kermit Gosnell was able to operate his 'house of horrors' in Philadelphia, where babies and women were left to die after botched abortions, because regulators and health inspectors turned a blind eye," --Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood manager.
For this reason, NMAFL will continue collecting petitions until the end of this month, calling on our state's leaders to investigate NM's abortion clinics and for the defunding of Planned Parenthood.Sign and share our petition today.
An 11th undercover video from the Center for Medical is making the rounds. If you watch just two minutes of this you will be utterly disgusted, the lack of humanity and compassion for women and unborn children displayed by Planned Parenthood officials is palatable. The audience applauds at statements like these from an abortionist, "Not to mention, women know what's in there," she continued "They're not stupid...Let's just give them all the violence, it's a person, it's killing. Let's just give them all that." Watch video here.
Let's help protect New Mexico women from the lies of the abortion industry-and let's stop the practice of unborn children from being dismembered, their body parts harvested and sold as if they were car parts in our state.
Donate what you can today here with a secure online donation, whether its $10, $30, $50 to help fight the abortion industry in New Mexico. Every dollar helps beyond what you can imagine.
