Dear Congressional Leaders,
Millennials tend to get tossed around in the press for being lazy, selfie-centered and mostly liberal, but that’s not the truth. We are an educated generation, with nearly two out of every three of us attending college. We are incredibly diverse, not only in race but also in political viewpoints. And we care about social justice, equality and our communities, which helps to explain why we are more passionately anti-abortion than generations before us. In fact, the Institute for Pro-Life Advancement found that 53% of Millennials believe that abortion should be illegal in all or most circumstances.
As a result of the elections last year, an entirely new government has an unprecedented opportunity to implement policies that reflect the viewpoints of a nation that is moving in a more positive direction on abortion, and that seek to provide true equality to women and protect them from businesses that betray their trust and endanger their health.
To this end, we ask you to:
1) Immediately stop funding the nation’s largest abortion vendor, Planned Parenthood, and
2) Redirect the over half a billion dollars they receive every year from taxpayers to healthcare facilities that do not provide abortions, yet deliver excellent care to women and their families.

We understand the very real struggle for women who are pregnant and don’t know how or if they can care for a child – we see this all the time on our campuses. But the sad truth is that Planned Parenthood only has one thing in mind: making money off of abortions. This is wrong and a great injustice, one we intend to correct in our lifetime.
As pro-life leaders on our campuses and in our communities, we talk to our peers every day about Planned Parenthood, and it doesn’t take much for them to see that the nation’s largest abortion giant should be defunded.
When we talk to our peers about the more than 320,000 abortions that Planned Parenthood does every year, coupled with the vast amount of resources they spend on elections (more than $30 million, almost all to Democrats, in the past cycle), students, even pro-choice ones, are very receptive to agreeing that Planned Parenthood should be defunded.
Contrary to Planned Parenthood’s claims, women will not lose healthcare or access to needed services. Federally Qualified Health Centers outnumber Planned Parenthoods over 20-to-1.
Continued funding for women’s healthcare, particularly for low-income women and families, is vital for our communities.
We want funds going to non-criminal healthcare facilities and we don’t want to fund the nation’s largest abortion vendor, especially one that has been referred for criminal prosecution on over a dozen counts by both the U.S. House and Senate.
The bottom line is that we don’t need Planned Parenthood.
The Pro-Life Generation
