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.

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.
