Congress must Act Now and Approve Budget without Funding Abortion Provider

Washington, D.C – The U.S. Congress must pass a budget funding the US government by the end of September. Congress must pass the budget without Planned Parenthood’s millions of taxpayer dollars and send the bill to President Obama’s desk to sign.

To make sure Congress and President Obama hear directly from women who have been harmed by Planned Parenthood, pro-life groups are organizing the #WomenBetrayed: The Real Stories Rally & Lobby Day in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, September 10th at 12:00pm to 2:00pm.

“We need to stand together in unity to begin to restore our country’s goodness by our virtue.” said Jeanne Mancini, President of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund. “Specifically we are called to live heroic perseverance, fortitude and love. I am certain that if we continue to fight for the human rights of the most vulnerable among us and continue to tell the truth about how abortion hurts women then one day soon we will win! We will restore a culture of love and life where no woman in her right mind would choose abortion and where every precious human life is respected from conception.”

The March for Life in Washington, D.C., began as a small demonstration on January 22, 1974, the first anniversary of the now-infamous Supreme Court decisions in Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton and rapidly grew to be the largest pro-life event in the world.  The peaceful demonstration that has followed on this somber anniversary every year since is a witness to the truth concerning the greatest human rights violation of our time, abortion.

Jeanne Mancini, President of March for Life Education and Defense Fund, is available for interviews. For more information or to schedule an interview, please contact Ryan Hughes at or (703) 739-5920.
