Congress Votes Next Week on Allowing Pro-Abortion Groups HIV/AIDS Funding

Article here

Members of Congress have recessed this week to mark Presidents' Day, but one of the first votes on the docket when they return is an intense debate on whether to open international AIDS/HIV funding to pro-abortion groups. Pro-life organizations are asking for calls and emails urging a no vote.

Abortion advocates in Congress have changed the wording of the President's Emergency plan for AIDS Relief to include funding for groups that engage in "reproductive health" and "family planning."

Those are code words international pro-abortion groups use to hide their performance of or support for abortions in other nations.

At the end of the article, it states we should contact our representative in congress and encourage them to vote no on this piece of legislation. I know I will be making that call today.
