If you can be brief, give an overview as to why Planned Parenthood is bad for women, children, and families. If you like to go into greater depth, pick one reason and stress it:
At this time of economic trouble, we don't need to be shoring up this abominable, dishonest, creepy institution.
Here is my letter to my Senators:
I am writing to ask you to join Senator David Vitter in his attempts to amend the Appropriations Bill so as to remove Title X funding from Planned Parenthood.
I first learned what a seedy, dishonest organization Planned Parenthood is back in 1983, when my babysitter told me of how a San Diego Planned Parenthood had lied to her in order to get her to submit to an abortion her mother was forcing her to undergo. Since then I have encountered plenty of evidence that her experience was not a fluke.
These problems are nationwide and include lying to patients, misleading the public, defrauding taxpayers, referring to dangerous abortion providers, and engaging in sloppy practices that have cost women their lives.
The most recent evidence of how bad Planned Parenthood is comes from the series of "sting" operations by Lila Rose, showing how Planned Parenthood is willing to be complicit in statutory rape.
Please stand up for women and families, and for the taxpayers who do not want their taxes going to harm women, children, and families.
Though I doubt Arlen Specter will back us on this; he seems to vote straight Democratic party line when dealing with abortion and related issues.
