FAITH in Flint is an initiative of the Diocese of Lansing to support the Catholic presence in Flint. The parishes, charities, and schools in Flint work to fight persistent poverty through education, feeding and sheltering the poor, and teaching people how to make a better life for themselves. Mostly, they bring hope and the message of Christ to all.

Legislation is expected to come before the U.S. House of Representatives this week that would eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood of America and its affiliates. Planned Parenthood receives over half a billion taxpayer dollars a year and performs over a third of all abortions around the United States. Recently, a number of undercover videos show officials from the organization willing to participate in the trafficking of fetal organs and tissue, as well as to alter the abortion procedure to obtain more "intact" parts. Taxpayer dollars should not be supporting an organization with these practices.
In particular, House Resolution 3134 places a moratorium on funding for Planned Parenthood for one year and is on the agenda for the House Rules Committee evening. A vote of the full House is expected shortly thereafter.
Take a few minutes now to let your U.S. Representatives know that H.R. 3134 and similar legislation such as H.R. 3301 should be adopted into law. Thank you in advance for your efforts on behalf of the unborn.
