Cosponsor Defund Planned Parenthood legislation

            Reps. Dave Decoste (R-Norwell) and Joe McKenna (R - Webster) have picked up where former Rep. Jim Lyons left off and filed legislation again this session to defund Planned Parenthood. One piece of legislation would prohibit any state funds from going to any nonprofit that violates Massachusetts law that prohibits the sale of baby body parts--ie Planned Parenthood. The second piece of legislation specifically enumerates that no funding would go to Planned Parenthood.

            While conservatives in Congress and in state capitals across our nation fight to take dollars away from Planned Parenthood, we also need to let legislators know they can act to take away their local state dollars as well, by asking them to co-sponsor these bills. During the 2016 budget debate, every Republican legislator in the house voted in support of defunding any organization involved in illegal organ harvesting. In particular, they should be asked if they will cosponsor this time around.

               Please help us spread the word and assist Representatives DeCoste and McKenna by clicking on the link below to ask your legislator to cosponsor their bills. Thank you!
