Senate Defeats Efforts to Defund Planned Parenthood

So what’s next for the Pro-Life Movement?

We continue the fight because the Pro-Life Movement never gives up, not as long as the bloodshed of the unborn continues. Unborn babies have no voice but ours. Full Article

At 2 AM this morning, I was standing outside the Senate chamber in the U.S. Capitol when the latest effort to repeal and replace Obamacare – that would have defunded Planned Parenthood – was defeated by just one vote, 51 to 49.

There is no other way to put it: This is a painfully disappointing blow to our efforts to enact pro-life health care reform that defunds Planned Parenthood.

This is a mere setback in the middle of a succession of tremendous gains. It is emblematic of all successful human rights movements in our nation’s history. The power of the movement which strikes at the human heart and the inexorable march of gains, while interrupted at times, cannot and will not cease until clear and certain victory. Then and only then will we rest.

For now, we will use this moment to refuel, re-group, and give thanks for the miraculous gains and blessings, and then plan our way forward that will only be possible with our continued partnership with you.
