AFA of PA ACTION ALERT
March 14, 2011
Issues (check corresponding number in ‘Details’ and ‘Action’ Sections)
1.) Continuing Resolution and Planned Parenthood
2.) Only ONE Pennsylvanian has Signed On!!
3.) Truth Academy Coming
1.) Tomorrow the House will vote on another Continuing Resolution to fund the government until April 2. The resolution being voted on tomorrow does NOT contain the Pence Amendment defunding Planned Parenthood or any of the riders to reinstate the Mexico City Policy, stop abortion funding in Washington, DC or defund the United Nations Population Fund, which works with Chinese population control officials in using forced abortions to enforce its one-child policy. (Note: Did you read about China is asking New Zealand for special compensation because seven of the 166 killed in the February earthquake was an only child of Chinese parents?)
This additional short term resolution was introduced by House Republicans because pro-abortion Senate Democrats defeated the long-term bill to fund the federal government, defund Planned Parenthood and contained all the riders mentioned above. Many of the newly elected Senators and Congressmen are frustrated with the introduction of yet another Continuing Resolution. They want a bill introduced to fund the government through September 30th – the end of the fiscal year. (Remember what they are dealing with is the 2011 budget, which should have been passed by September 30 of LAST year!) Click here for more information.
2.) Pornography harms, the majority of Americans agree. On March 18th a letter will be delivered to US Attorney General Eric Holder. It will be signed by Senators and Congressmen demanding prosecution of obscenity laws. This is the first massive effort in 15 years to get the federal obscenity laws upheld and you can be an important part! As of today only ONE federal elected official from Pennsylvania has signed the letter – that’s one out of 21!! Joe Pitts has boldly stepped forward to protect Pennsylvanians and all Americans from illegal pornography!
3.) Mission America and Americans for Truth About Homosexuality are working together to bring the next Truth Academy. It will be held April 1 beginning at 1:00 p.m. through April 2nd 3:30 p.m. in Columbus, OH. The cost is $75 per person, if paid by March 26th and $25 for pastors.
1.) Contact your Congressman and ask him or her to vote “NO” during tomorrow’s Continuing Resolution vote. Click here for contact info. Please e-mail AND call the Congressman’s district office nearest you.
2.) Commit to taking a few minutes each day this week to call your US Congressman and US Senators Pat Toomey and Bob Casey, Jr. and ask them to sign onto the Attorney General letter asking for vigorous prosecution of illegal pornography. (Senators would contact Senator Orrin Hatch to sign on and Republican Congressmen would contact Congressman Randy Forbes and Democratic Congressmen would contact Congressman Mike McIntyre.) Thank Congressman Joe Pitts for signing onto the Holder letter. Click here for Congressional contact information and here for Senate contact.
3.) Please consider attending this all important Truth Academy. The main topic of the conference is the ‘hate labeling’ of Christians. Click here for more information.
