We are on the cusp of tremendous victories for the American People.
First, seven years after the enactment of pro-abortion ObamaCare, it has clearly failed in a devastating fashion. Premiums have skyrocketed, regulations have exploded, and - most importantly – options for healthcare continue to vanish at an alarming rate. We said from the beginning that the structure of ObamaCare was nothing but a scheme that would end with a single-payer system run by the federal government. That dire prediction has now proven accurate, as providers flee the market and millions of Americans are left without coverage options.
There is no real alternative to this catastrophic situation other than rolling back the taxes, mandates, and regulations of pro-abortion ObamaCare. This will require a multi-pronged approach and will not be accomplished overnight. But it must start inside the Budget Reconciliation process that is now being considered by Congress. It is critically important for all involved to participate in this process and to roll back as much of ObamaCare as possible during this initial phase. But it is incumbent on Congress to ensure that this effort succeeds. It is not acceptable for Congress to choose the status quo of ObamaCare. The time has come to acknowledge that ObamaCare has failed, and to begin its repeal. Our federal government owes this to the American people.
Next, it is time to get the American People out of the business of funding the world’s largest abortion provider. Under the terms of the Budget Reconciliation bill, any abortion provider with Medicaid receipts over $350 million would be blocked from receiving those taxpayer dollars. This would finally provide the American taxpayers with relief from underwriting the abortion business that is Planned Parenthood. It would also improve Medicaid’s ability to meet the healthcare demands of those it is designed to serve.
To put it simply, this would be the most significant victory for the sanctity of life in a generation. We’ve been fighting for this for more than three decades. We must seize this opportunity.
The Budget Reconciliation process is not perfect. It will not be the end of the effort, and we stand ready to continue the hard work of undoing the damage that has been done by ObamaCare by rolling back price-raising regulations and implementing more market reforms through subsequent legislation that would continue to bring down prices and improve the quality of healthcare for more Americans. But that process begins now. The U.S. House and the U.S. Senate must finish their work on this Reconciliation package and send it to the President for his signature. We must not miss this window of opportunity to use reconciliation – the same mechanism used to pass ObamaCare – to begin the repeal process and defund Big Abortion.
Failure is not an option.

Recently, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a Louisiana law that “ requires abortion facilities to meet basic health and safety standards .” Specifically, the law requires abortion providers to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. This is a victory for the lives of unborn babies,
In 1970, New York established itself as the abortion capital of American when it passed the most permissible abortion law in America. To this day, New York is one of the most abortion friendly states in the U.S. In 2014, abortions in the U.S. occurred at a rate of 14.6 abortions per 1,000 women .
Big Abortion is shaken, but it’s rallying its troops and plotting ways to expand its reach to circumvent pro-life laws. We told you how Planned Parenthood and the pro-abortion Left was in an all-out panic at the thought of a conservative Supreme Court majority. They took to social media to stir up...
The tentacles of Big Abortion are snaking their way across the globe to constrict the voices of Pro-Life workers. Lawmakers are trying to make pro-life pregnancy centers promote abortion to desperate pregnant women looking for answers and help. This might sound familiar, but it’s not just happening...
