Call Senators Webb and Warner

Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List, asks for your help to pass this amendment...

Unborn babies have an urgent need for us to take action right now.

A critical pro-life amendment banning federal funds from paying for elective abortions and plans that cover elective abortions has just been filed for a vote in the Senate.

This bipartisan amendment is sponsored by Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE), Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT), and Senator Bob Casey (D-PA).

It is absolutely critical that you call your Senators and ask them to vote for the Nelson-Hatch-Casey Amendment.

Sen. Jim Webb
Phone: (202) 224-4024

Sen. Mark Warner
Phone: (202) 224-2023

Here is what you need to tell your Senators:

-- A November CNN poll found that 61% Americans of Americans reject abortion funding and only 37% believe it is acceptable

-- It is a violation of the consciences of the taxpayers to force us to fund elective abortions or plans that cover elective abortions.

-- The amendment merely applies the longstanding policy of the Hyde Amendment, which bans federal dollars from paying for elective abortions or plans that cover elective abortions.

-- Vote yes on the Nelson-Hatch-Casey Amendment.
