The U.S. House of Representatives will vote Friday, October 23, on the "pro-life reconciliation bill" (H.R. 3762). This is a fast-track bill containing multiple pro-life provisions.
Your immediate action is needed in support of this historic pro-life measure!
H.R. 3762 is a special once-a-year measure called the "reconciliation bill." Unlike almost every other kind of bill, the "reconciliation bill" cannot be filibustered in the U.S. Senate -- so it can pass with only 51 votes, rather than 60 (of 100 senators). Republicans currently hold a narrow majority in the U.S. Senate, 54-46.

But before the bill can be considered by the Senate, it first must pass the House on October 23.
The bill contains two major sections:
-- The bill would block, for one year, most federal payments to Planned Parenthood. At least 89% of federal funding of Planned Parenthood would be blocked by this bill -- about $400 million.
-- The bill would repeal a number of major components of the Obamacare health law, including two of the major provisions that will lead to rationing of lifesaving care: the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) and the "excess benefits tax."
