Anti-choice Senator tries to cut Title X funds  

What do you do when you have a wonderful program that provides federal funds to preventive healthcare and family planning services? If you're Senator David Vitter, you propose an amendment to drastically cut its funds.

Um, fail. This is awful. According to Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards:

"This is the worst possible time for these outrageous attacks. More and more people are losing their jobs and their health insurance — and that means that safety-net providers like Planned Parenthood affiliate health centers are more important than ever. It's unconscionable to try to strip our funding at time when so many people are relying on us — but that's exactly what Sen. Vitter and his allies are trying to do."

Please take a minute to fill out this form on Planned Parenthood's website to tell your Senators to vote NO on this ridiculous amendment.

What next?
