Defunding Planned Parenthood

Dear Representative Fitzpatrick and Senator Toomey,

Long before the recent videos came to light, we all knew that Planned Parenthood was the nation's largest abortion provider.  Defunding Planned Parenthood should have happened a long, long time ago. 

While Representative Fitzpatrick is NOT among the 163 co-sponsors of HR 3134, Senator  Toomey IS a co-sponsor of S 1881.  While the Senate is expected to vote tomorrow on S 1881, it is feared that filibustering will result in its demise.  More will actually be needed than HR 3134 / S 1881.  

As reported by The Hill, "Eighteen House conservatives told GOP leaders Thursday that they will not support any measure to fund the government if it continues to fund Planned Parenthood.  'We must act to fully defund Planned Parenthood,' they wrote in a letter obtained by The Hill. 'Please know that we cannot and will not support any funding resolution — an appropriations bill, an omnibus package, a continuing resolution, or otherwise — that contains any funding for Planned Parenthood, including mandatory funding streams.'"  Signers included Pennsylvania's own Representative Keith Rothfus.

 Should S 1881 fail tomorrow, would you consider standing in solidarity with Representative Rothfus?

Sincerely, 

The Beatitudes from "Jesus of Nazareth"

About Me

I am an enormously blessed husband and dad. In regard to my Catholic theological background, I have a certificate in social ministry & a master's degree (moral theology concentration), as well as a catechetical diploma from the Vatican's Sacred Congregation for the Clergy (Nope, I am not now - nor have I have ever been - a seminarian, deacon, or priest.). I feel particularly proud to have a mandatum. I also have a doctorate in Christian counseling psychology.

And yup, that's me!

And yup, that's me!
