On Monday August 3rd, the United States Senate, and Pennsylvania’s two US Senators, had a choice: whether to continue to force taxpayers to fund Planned Parenthood, an organization whose major activity is the taking of human life through abortion, and selling the organs and other remains of those that they killed.
While a majority of Senators voted to end funding of Planned Parenthood, the final tally failed to meet the 60 vote threshold to stop the flow of tax dollars.
Pennsylvania’s junior Senator, Pat Toomey, sided with the taxpayer and with basic humanity in voting to stop funding Planned Parenthood. Pennsylvania Family Council applauds Sen. Toomey for his vote. We encourage Pennsylvanians to express appreciation to Sen. Toomey for his pro-life stand.
However, Sen. Robert P. Casey, Jr., despite claims of being pro-life, repudiated that notion with his vote on behalf of Planned Parenthood, which is both the nation’s and Pennsylvania’s leader in selling abortions (and the body parts that result).
We call on Sen. Casey to return to the principles and values of the man that raised him, the late Gov. Robert P. Casey, a courageous pro-life leader who said, “Abortion is the ultimate violence.” Indeed.
Thus, we must and we will continue and expand our efforts on behalf of life, justice and simple humanity to end the taking of innocent human life, and to restore respect for the sanctity of life from conception until natural death. Even now we are actively engaged to accomplish this noble goal in Pennsylvania.
We are confident in the justice of our cause, and in its ultimate victory.
