If we accept the principle that universal human rights are worth embracing, then all human life must be included within this ideal. That's what "universal" means. Human rights begin when human life begins and ends with life's natural conclusion. Anything else is either ignorance or sophistry and bigotry." -- Mark Davis Pickup

Historic vote to cut Planned Parenthood from federal funding
After the historic vote in the House of Representatives, National Right to Life Committee representative, Jessica Rodgers, stated "This landmark vote demonstrates that most House members now recognize Planned Parenthood is a hyper-political, under-regulated, out-of-control mega-marketer of abortion as a method of birth control."
It is important that this historic and right decision by the House of Represenatives is not reversed in the inevitable wave of pressure from Planned Parenthood that is sure to follow. Planned Parenthood, and their affiliates are bloated with years at the public trough and will not give up their dependency on government funding easily.
I encourage Americans people of good will to express their support to the 240 Members of Congress who voted to cut PP's funding and throw out of Congress next election the 185 Members who opposed cutting funding. Replace them with politicians who value and protect every human life.
