The undersigned organizations are writing to ask that during conference negotiations on the FY 2008 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education spending bill (H.R. 3043) you fund the Title X family planning program at the House-passed level of $311 million, a $28 million increase over FY 2007 funding.

It’s been a long time since America’s pro-choice majority has dominated thescene. Too long. But we’re here today to change that. With this march, we begin a new era.

The undersigned organizations are writing to strongly object to the “Provider Conscience” regulation proposed on August 26, 2008 by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
