A pro-abortion extremist minority in the U.S. Senate has filibustered a vote to defund Planned Parenthood.
A bipartisan majority of the Senate voted to close debate and vote to cut off the abortion giant’s taxpayer funding, falling short of the 60-vote threshold to avoid a filibuster.
This means that a minority of the Senate – led by Planned Parenthood’s pro-abortion political allies – have blocked a vote.
Planned Parenthood continues to rake in over $500 million of our tax dollars a year. It continues to slaughter nearly 330,000 babies a year. And it continues to pad its bottom line by selling these slaughtered babies’ body parts.
Yet 45 Members of the Senate voted to allow this barbarity to continue to be funded by you and me, the taxpayers.
You need to know their names.

While we must hold these Senators accountable for their vote for barbarity, it is equally important to thank those Senators (a bipartisan majority including Senators Manchin (D-WV) and Donnelly (D-IN)) who spoke out to stop subsidizing Planned Parenthood’s abortion business.
Our fight to defund the abortion giant will not be deterred. A majority of the Senate and a majority of Americans do not want to be forced to pay for this evil.
We continue to work with members of both houses of Congress on key committee investigations of Planned Parenthood’s potentially illegal activity.
We are also directly representing the Center for Medical Progress and some of its board members who have been targeted by big abortion with a federal lawsuit to censor and silence their pro-life investigative journalism. The abortion industry doesn’t want the truth to come out. It doesn’t want its horrific abortion tactics to be exposed to the American public. We’re defending these pro-life journalists in federal court.
Stand with us. Demand the evil sale of slaughtered babies end, and call on investigations into big abortion’s horrific practices. As we defend those who are exposing Planned Parenthood in court, sign our petition today.
It is well documented – and we’ve been telling you for years – that Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a eugenicist who believed that society could, and should, create a superior race of people. Yet, Planned Parenthood has repeatedly overlooked its founder’s racist ideals and goals...
Pro-abortion-led states are demanding COVID-19 relief money from the federal government, despite the fact that they’ve been funneling a fortune to Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. At a time where they should also be fighting to protect the lives of their residents, certain states and...
Despite federal laws meant to protect them, pro-life doctors and nurses are still being pressured and coerced into assisting in procedures they have moral objections to – like abortions – for fear of losing their jobs. The ACLJ is working diligently to defend their constitutional rights of...
The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) Friday filed a friend-of-the-court brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to put the Constitution itself ahead of its misguided pro-abortion precedents. As the ACLJ brief phrases it: [I]f fidelity to the Constitution is to be a hallmark of this Court as...
