DALLAS — Jason Yates, CEO of My Faith Votes, issues the following statement in response to the passage of legislation in the U.S. House to reopen the government that includes funding for pro-abortion initiatives:
“The U.S. House passed legislation yesterday to reopen the government that contained language to directly support abortions worldwide, including the repeal of the Mexico City Policy and an increase in funding for the U.N. Population Fund. Thankfully, the bill will find few friends in the U.S. Senate and has little chance of becoming law. Yet, on day one of the new Congress, it is clear the radical Left is flexing its muscles and pushing an anti-life agenda. Conservatives across the country are painfully aware that elections have consequences. More than that, potentially thousands of unborn children are facing an increased threat to their lives. Christians must lobby their representatives, regardless of party, and urge them to protect life and refuse to fund Planned Parenthood or any group advocating abortion.”
My Faith Votes has this tool available for voters to identify and contact their elected officials.
