My sister just recieved this from our congressman, thought y'alled like to see this:


Given our opposition to using tax dollars to fund abortions, I wanted to update you on recent efforts in Congress to address this important issue.

Over the past two years, thousands of Virginians have expressed to me their outrage over Democratic policies that use taxpayer money to fund abortions. I am adamantly opposed to these efforts and will continue to work to ensure that our tax dollars do not go towards funding abortions.

Last week, I brought the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act (H.R. 3), a bill I cosponsored, to the floor for a vote. I am pleased to report that H.R. 3 passed the House of Representatives with my support by a vote of 251-175 (Roll No. 292). This legislation establishes a permanent, government-wide prohibition on taxpayer subsidies for abortions and insurance coverage that includes abortions. In addition, H.R. 3 makes conscience protections for health care providers permanent and closes loopholes that give tax-preferred status to abortions. This commonsense measure is just one step towards protecting innocent life while also promoting the responsible use of taxpayer dollars. You may rest assured that I will continue to work with my colleagues in the House of Representatives to protect the sanctity of life.

Thank you for this opportunity to update you on my efforts in the 112th Congress. For your convenience, you may receive further information from me on issues important to the 7th District at http://cantor.house.gov/. Your thoughts and comments are always welcome.

With kind regards, I am



Eric Cantor
Member of Congress
