James Pat –
I couldn’t wait until Monday to share the good news with you! On Friday night, the state of Arizona officially defunded Planned Parenthood. I can’t tell you how excited we were when Governor Jan Brewer made the surprise announcement at our Campaign for Life event in Phoenix that she would sign the bill right there!
James Pat, this is a great victory for the entire SBA List family across the country!
With your support, we’ve spent the last few months working closely with pro-life legislators and the teams at Alliance Defense Fund, the Center for Arizona Policy, and Arizona Right to Life to pass this legislation. Chuck Donovan of the Lozier Institute (the SBA List research arm) even went to Phoenix to testify on behalf of the legislation while Congresswoman Marilyn Musgrave held defunding Planned Parenthood rallies across the state of Arizona.
James Pat, with this first major victory for our legislation under our belts, please make an immediate donation to help us continue our pro-life work. Arizona now joins eight other states in cutting off funding for Planned Parenthood.
Momentum is on our side! We now must leverage this momentum in other states. Already, we are working with state allies to advance similar measures in Ohio and Iowa. These efforts not only put Planned Parenthood on the defense in the states, but helps sustain momentum in the battle to defund them at the federal level.
We simply cannot – and will not – stop working to protect the conscience of taxpayers and, most importantly, save the lives of precious unborn children.
We could not have made this happen with you, James Pat. Thank you for standing with us in this fight to save lives.
Director of Policy & Programs, SBA List
PS: As you can imagine, Planned Parenthood is fuming at our success cutting off their supply of taxpayer dollars and we expect them to fight back with renewed vigor after our victory in Arizona. Please chip in whatever you can to help – we can’t do this without you.
