Please immediately urge U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz to vote for H.R. 3762, the pro-life reconciliation bill to defund Planned Parenthood.

Your two-minute call or email is critical to the passage of this bill. This is expected to be a VERY close vote.

The U.S. Senate is expected to vote on the Planned Parenthood issue on Thursday, December 3, or on December 4, on passage of the entire bill. You can monitor the debate here.

H.R. 3762 would cut off nearly 90% of the federal funds that go to Planned Parenthood — about $400 million! This is a special kind of bill called a “reconciliation bill” that CANNOT BE FILIBUSTERED in the U.S. Senate. The U.S. House passed it on October 23.

At this time, Senator Cruz has not indicated he will support this bill.

U.S. Senator John Cornyn’s office has assured us that he is strongly in favor of H.R. 3762. There is no reason to contact his office at this time.

  • This bill uses the “reconciliation” process to curtail the largest sources of federal funding to Planned Parenthood, those being Medicaid and other mandatory-spending programs — nearly $400 million. The funding is re-directed to community health centers, which provide comprehensive health care for women but do not perform abortion on demand.
  • However, nationally Planned Parenthood receives more than $400 million in federal funds.
  • Planned Parenthood runs the largest chain of abortion facilities in the nation and in Texas — with five large abortion facilities operating in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio.
  • The Texas Women’s Health Program has more than 4,600 providers of women’s health services across the state compared to only about 35 Planned Parenthood sites in Texas.
  • Planned Parenthood fails to office comprehensive primary and preventative care to low-income women, which the vast majority of the Texas Women’s Health Program providers can offer.
