CALL TO ACTION -TODAY… TIME IS SHORT
“It’s always too soon to quit!”
— Norman Vincent Peale
The Iowa Legislature is in the closing days of the session, and it is too soon to quit in our efforts to stop the flow of tax dollars to abortionists.
House Republicans, under the leadership of Speaker Kraig Paulsen, have taken a firm stand in stopping the flow of tax dollars to abortionists. Almost two weeks ago they included the following language in the House version (Amendment H-1378) of the Health and Human Services budget bill (SF446):
“…funds appropriated under this section shall not be distributed to any person, as defined in Section 4.1, who participates in the willful termination of human life.”
However, as past experience would suggest, Senate Democrats will probably oppose this provision. Without the support of at least two Democrats in the Senate the measure will not pass.
We need your help:
Time is short and your help is critical in the closing hours of the 2013 Session.
Please call or email your Senator, especially if they are a member of the Democrat majority.
Find your Senator’s name and email address at: https://www.legis.iowa.gov/
Call your Senator by dialing the Senate switchboard at 515-281-3371 and asking for him or her by name. (If you get the answering machine after hours, it will prompt you on how to leave a message for your Senator).
Ask them to ‘vote to keep tax dollars from going to abortionists by supporting the House language’.
They are likely to vote on this legislation in the next few days.
Thank you for stepping up in the final days of the legislative session!
