UPDATE: The omnibus budget bill passed Sunday Dec. 13, after 2 attempted procedural moves to block passage (led by GOP Sens. McCain and DeMint) were outgunned. Our Kansas Senators voted pro-life in all 3 votes. Jill Stanek points out how Sen. Brownback had questioned why tax payers should fund elective abortions in D.C. when 54% of all pregnancies in D.C. already end in abortion (see Table 2 of AGI report).
Not to be confused with the health care reform bill, this spending bill removes all funding for proven Abstinence programs and pours more of our tax money into Planned Parenthood, overseas abortion, and elective abortion for the lovely District of Columbia.
Read lifenews.com story about the details of this budget– yet another outrageous anti-life power grab. We expect Senators Pat Roberts and Sam Brownback to oppose this bill, but your encouragement is always helpful. Democrats hold the majority and we need to pray that constituents of pro-life Democrat Senators will complain strongly enough to make a difference.
