If Republicans don't pass a continuing resolution by next Wednesday, the government will shut down. In order to appease a handful of Tea Party radicals in the House and egged on by presidential candidates like Carly Fiorina and Chris Christie, Republicans are demanding that President Obama agree to defund Planned Parenthood.
Democrats have stood strong so far against Republican efforts to cut funding for women's health care. But if a shutdown happens, pressure will be intense for Senate Democrats to cut a deal. We need to stiffen their spines and show them that we expect Democrats to stand with us in support of Planned Parenthood.
Please call your Senator now and tell them to oppose ANY cut to Planned Parenthood funding.
