Ask Senators to vote from Senator Brownback's Amendment to H.R. 2764

Please contact your U.S. Senators right away.

Ask them to vote FOR Senator Brownback’s Amendments to the 2008 State/ Foreign Operations Appropriations
Bill (H.R. 2764).

Democrats, with the help of some liberal Republicans, have included language in the bill that would remove prohibitions on taxpayer funding for organizations overseas that perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning. They also would remove the Kemp-Kasten law, passed more than two decades ago, that prohibits U.S. taxpayer dollars from going to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the agency that supports the coercive one-child population control program of Communist China.

The Brownback Amendment would strike the offending language, reaffirm that the United States will not support abortion as a method of family planning, and would restore the Kemp-Kasten language.
