We just helped deliver a stunning blow to Planned Parenthood.
Today is the first deadline for Planned Parenthood to provide “assurance” that it has separated from its abortion business, or lose millions of taxpayer dollars. Now Planned Parenthood has caved, announcing that it will forgo upwards of $60 million in taxpayer funding.
We are winning. After we filed 4 amicus briefs in these cases, a remarkable 7-4 decision from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals allowed the defunding to proceed.
This is a blistering defeat for Planned Parenthood and its seemingly unlimited stream of taxpayer funding. The 9th Circuit agreed with the arguments we made in our amicus brief. But Planned Parenthood is still fighting in court.
Planned Parenthood performs over 300,000 abortions a year – that’s more than 900 a day.
Now we are preparing to file briefs in cases brought by Planned Parenthood, California, and New York (the same state that expanded abortion to the moment of birth), in order to protect doctors and nurses from being forced to participate in these gruesome abortions. Our first brief is being filed tomorrow.
We can win. We are beating Planned Parenthood, but we urgently need your support. Have your gift DOUBLED today through our Matching Challenge. $25 becomes $50; $50 becomes $100.
