Phone: Maria Cantwell: 202-224-3441, Patty Murray 202-224-2621
To fax: Use ResistBot by texting “resist” to 50409. Then follow the instructions as they are texted back to you. You can use the text below to write your fax.
Hi, my name is [NAME] and I’m a constituent from [CITY, ZIP].
I’m calling to express my strong support for Planned Parenthood and urge [REP/SEN NAME] to oppose any version of the American Health Care Act that does not preserve its federal funding. There is already a ban on allocating federal dollars to abortion care, so defunding Planned Parenthood would instead take money away from essential healthcare services like mammographies, Pap smears, and annual checkups.
OPTIONAL: Add a personal story or reason why funding for Planned Parenthood is important to you. Thank you for your time and attention.
