I'm truly shocked by what happened just moments ago in the House of Representatives. They voted to bar Planned Parenthood from all federal funding.

Millions of women, men and children who depend on Planned Parenthood will be deprived of basic health care, if the right-wing Republicans get their way in the Senate, too. 
 
It's simply outrageous. Give all the support possible to Planned Parenthood. Tell your Senators, no way!

I Stand With Planned ParenthoodPlanned Parenthood

URGENT MESSAGE FROM: Cecile Richards, President 
Planned Parenthood Action Fund:
 

Minutes ago, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to strip Planned Parenthood of all federal funding for any purpose whatsoever. That means no funding to Planned Parenthood health centers for birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings, HIV testing, and other essential care. 

By far, this is the most dangerous legislative assault on women's health in our history, and it cannot go unanswered. We need you to stand united with us now. We need you to stand with us and with the three million women, men, and teens who rely on Planned Parenthood and who are now at risk of losing access to basic care. 

We've drafted an open letter to every single representative in the House who voted for this cruel, unconscionable, unthinkable bill, and to every senator who still has a chance to stop it. Will you sign it — and share it right now?

AN OPEN LETTER TO CONGRESS
To the members of the House of Representatives who voted for the Pence Amendment to H.R. 1:How could you? 

How could you betray millions of women — and men, and teens — who rely on Planned Parenthood for basic health care? 

How could you condemn countless women in this country to undiagnosed cancer, unintended pregnancies, and untreated illnesses? 

Your vote was not only against those who seek care at Planned Parenthood health centers, but against every one of us who has ever sought care there, and against every one of us who knows that when we are healthy, when we are in charge of our lives, we thrive. 

It was a vote against me.To every senator who will soon consider this legislation:I stand with Planned Parenthood to say to you: STOP THIS. 

I stand with Planned Parenthood and the hundreds of thousands of people from every walk of life and every corner of this country who join me in signing this letter to tell you that we will fight this bill and we expect you to do the same. 

I stand with and for the millions of women, men, and teens who rely on Planned Parenthood, and I expect you to do the same.To every member of Congress, know that we stand together today against this outrageous assault, and together we will not lose.Sign The LetterThis fight will continue next week when our legislators return to their home districts, and when the vote heads to the U.S. Senate the following week. Your voice, your strength, and your unwavering support are absolutely critical, now and in the weeks ahead. I am so glad to know you are with us during this very challenging time.Sincerely, 


Cecile Richards, President

Palin wink

Tell Congress to STAND UP to Sarah Palin and climate deniers.

Tell them to fully fund NPR and defend public service media.

Click here to sign the petition>>

We urgently need your help. A source of legitimate climate science reporting is under attack by the far right!

Extremists – led by none other than Sarah Palin herself – are once again trying to defund National Public Radio. Pulling funds from NPR has been a goal of conservatives for decades and now the far right and climate change deniers think they’ve finally found the issue that will put NPR off the air for good.

What’s got the far right so mad at NPR this time? Commentator Juan Williams’ recent firing by NPR for comments he made on Fox News. As par for the course, Sarah Palin and the GOP leadership in Congress are cynically using this incident as a pretext to push for their longstanding goal of defunding NPR.

NPR is one of the few mainstream media outlets to report on the science – not the rhetoric – of global warming. That’s why LCV is partnering with our friends at CREDO Mobile to send a petition to Congress demanding that Congress stands against any attempt by the right wing and climate change deniers to defund NPR.

Tell Congress: Don’t cave to Sarah Palin. Protect NPR!

NPR has been a leader in reporting on the devastating effects of global warming. In fact, NPR recently funded a year-long expedition around the world to explore how climate changes people and how people change climate. NPR has long been one of the few mainstream media outlets reporting the unvarnished facts about global warming’s growing threat to our planet. If we want our planet to thrive, we simply can’t afford to let right wing climate change deniers drown out critical reporting like NPR’s.

This brazen attack against NPR must be stopped.

Tell Congress to stand up to Sarah Palin and the climate deniers in the House and Senate – add your name to the thousands of Americans demanding that Congress maintains NPR’s funding.

After you sign the petition, you will have an opportunity to help the environment even more. Since its inception, CREDO Mobile has donated more than $65 million dollars to non-profit organizations -- our sister organization, LCV Education Fund, is honored to be included in their generosity. Anyone who is a customer of CREDO Mobile or who takes this action can vote on CREDO’s 2010 Donations Ballot, which helps determine how much money various nonprofit groups will receive in donations.  

By signing the petition, CREDO Mobile will award you 100 points that you can use to vote for LCV Education Fund. We’ll send you a follow-up note on how to vote.

When you vote for LCV Education Fund in this ballot, you are ensuring that we receive more money to educate the public about environmental issues and priorities.

Thank you for all that you do for the environment.

Sincerely,
