Defund Planned Parenthood Prayer Vigil

I just received this email from Live Action this morning which is encouraging us to go to our local district, Representative or Senator's office to pray TODAY at noon.  Well, I need more notice than that so I won't be going to any office but what I will do is stop at noon today and pray the rosary for this intention.

Dear Pro-life Friends,
As you know last week, the House of Representatives voted - by an overwhelming majority - to strip Planned Parenthood of its federal taxpayer funding…
… But the struggle is far from over.

Planned Parenthood is FURIOUS, and is mobilizing abortion advocates across the country while running attack ads in the home districts of courageous House members who voted their conscience.

Now, the pro-abortion Senate has to create its own version of the “Continuing Resolution” bill… and it’s far less likely to include an amendment to stop federal funding to Planned Parenthood.

And regardless of the vote in the Senate, things don’t end there.

For the President to sign any bill into law, the wording from the House and the Senate versions of that bill must be exactly the same. The next step will be to send the Continuing Resolution bills from both the House and Senate to be ironed out in “Conference Committee.”

After the final bill from the Conference Committee is voted on again by both chambers, it will head to the President’s desk to be signed into law, or vetoed.

Bottom-line: There are still several hurdles to overcome. And media outlets are predicting that the measure to strip Planned Parenthood’s tax funding likely won’t survive …

… But we know that “WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE” — even removing hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars annually from Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion chain!
It is absolutely critical that our elected Representatives in Washington understand: Defunding Planned Parenthood is non-negotiable and pro-life Americans won’t rest until our tax dollars no longer support Planned Parenthood.
That is why the Expose Planned Parenthood Coalition is asking people of faith and conscience to once again hold peaceful prayer vigils coast to coast, pleading with God for justice to prevail — for innocent children at risk of death by abortion, for their mothers, and for the young girls being exploited by sex trafficking — aided and abetted by Planned Parenthood.

This time, we are asking you to hold vigils on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25, at 12 NOON, outside the nearest district office of your Senator or Representative — to pray that they will do the right thing in the days ahead.

This requires rapid action in order to show Planned Parenthood, our elected leaders, and the media the power of pro-life America to bring about change!

It’s simple! To find out what you need to do, visit the Expose Planned Parenthood homepage, where you’ll see step by step how you can plan, promote and conduct your prayer vigil this FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25, at 12 NOON.
It’s vital for us to act swiftly and take a public stand against to insist that our Representatives in Washington treat the defunding of Planned Parenthood as non-negotiable.

Together, we really can make a difference! Let’s act quickly to make sure Congress understands: the American people cannot support the killing of unborn children or be complicit in the aiding and abetting of underage human trafficking.
Let’s pray that our elected officials will realize that the time has come to DE-FUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD! Please visit the Expose Planned Parenthood webpage immediately to learn how to plan your vigil this FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25, at 12 NOON!
