Dear True-Believing Pro-Life Friend,

 

This is bigger than you or me. It is certainly bigger than him. Ever since President Obama won re-election over a year ago, the media and the secular Left have not stopped celebrating.

 

They believe they have delivered a decisive blow against those of us who believe in "outdated" notions like the importance of traditional families . . . or the humanity of unborn babies or the idea that our rights come from God, not government.

 

In their heart of hearts, they are rejoicing, thinking that I am finally gone, that you are finally going to stop fighting for your beliefs, and that the issues you and I care about can finally be ignored. But they are wrong. Every one of them is dead wrong.

 

Because the cause of life of protecting the God-given right to life is bigger than one person or one election. And right now, little boys and girls in the womb are facing a grave threat: President Obama's planned expansion of taxpayer-funded abortion in all 50 states.

 

That is why all throughout 2014, I will be working with the Susan B. Anthony List an aggressive grassroots pro-life group in Washington supporting a nationwide petition project to pressure Congress and END taxpayer support for abortionists.

 

Please take a moment right now to sign and return the enclosed PETITION FOR LIFE, urging your Representative to vote "YES" on upcoming legislation that will ban taxpayer funding of abortion.

 

Your signed PETITION is important, for two reasons:

 

FIRST, right now in Washington, DC, there is an effort by the DC establishment to convince candidates that they should abandon "social issues" if they want to win.

 

Well I'm sorry, but a seven-month old boy living in his mom's womb is not an "issue," he's a human being. And after five years of Obama's pro-abortion ugliness, these precious babies need some help.

 

On top of that, evidence shows the pro-life position is more popular than it's been in decades. So any politician telling you there needs to be a "truce" on "social issues" is flat-out wrong.

 

SECOND, there are a lot of politicians in Congress who won their elections by claiming to be "pro-life." However, they should not be blindly trusted to follow through on that promise.

 

In fact, the reason we are stuck with ObamaCare (which is a huge expansion of abortion "rights") is because there were a lot of pro-life Democrats who abandoned their campaign pledges and fell in line with President Obama's orders. We cannot allow this to happen.

 

If someone tells voters during a campaign that he is pro-life, he'd better stick to that in Washington.

 

And an important action that Congress can take would be to eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood and any other "health" organization that specializes in killing babies.

 

A lot of people are surprised to know it, but the federal government spends hundreds of millions of dollars on abortion every single year.

 

As they wrangle in Washington over ways to cut the deficit, this should be an easy one. And it should be our first demand.

 

I trust pro-life leaders in Congress like Michele Bachmann, Steve King, Chris Smith and others to make this issue a priority.

 

And I trust the folks at the Susan B. Anthony List to generate maximum grassroots pressure on Congress . . . but only if you do your part to help. So please sign and return your PETITION FOR LIFE today.

 

And when you do, please also include one important financial gift of $35, $50, $100, $250 or $500 to the Susan B. Anthony List to help them fund this nationwide petition project. We've even made this convenient for you because this is so important. Feel free to sign our online PETITION at www.SEA-List.org/Santorum20l4 and send your gift via credit card today. Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser has a plan to mail PETITIONS to three million Americans over the next 60 days.

 

But at $.47 each to print, mail, and process each PETITION, the total cost of this project is over $1.4 million. That's a lot of money for an organization like the Susan B. Anthony List. Unlike Planned Parenthood, they receive no federal funding. Nor do they get help from lavish Hollywood fundraisers.

 

So any financial gift you are able to contribute to this cause is important.

 

Once all the PETITIONS have been mailed out, signed, and received back at Susan B. Anthony List headquarters, staffers will deliver them directly to each Member of Congress.

 

Then, if they have the resources, the Susan B. Anthony List will launch an aggressive grassroots campaign targeting individual legislators and calling on them by name to stop funding abortion, using every tactic in the book:

 

Hard-hitting TV ads in key areas, driving home the message that Americans are forced to fund the murder of innocent babies.

 

An aggressive online advocacy program that makes it easy for internet users to learn more about the horrific practices of Planned Parenthood and take action.

 

An all-out media blitz including personal visits by SBA List leaders to the home states and districts of key lawmakers to make sure wavering politicians can't hide from this issue.

 

A comprehensive direct mail and tele-communications program to mobilize millions of pro-life Americans to contact their elected officials and demand they stop using taxpayer money to fund Planned Parenthood.

 

All of this will help us force a series of public, roll-call votes on our (popular) legislation to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood and other abortionists.

 

The good news is that even if we fall short of passing these bills, we'll have all the politicians on record, and anyone who votes "YES" on taxpayer funded abortion will have to answer for it in November.

 

Your signed PETITION will also help us protect existing pro-life laws, including the Hyde Amendment, which prevents taxpayer four dollars from financing abortion under Medicaid.

 

So please help, because again, if caring Americans like you just give up and let Barack Obama impose his will on our country, the results will be catastrophic.

 

During my time in Washington, I was able to lead several winning fights to pass new pro-life laws. Because of those successes, countless babies were born, instead of being killed in the womb.

 

We cannot abandon our cause after one setback! So please join with me today.

 

Your signed PETITION will help put pressure on your Representative to vote "YES" on legislation cutting off federal funding for abortion.

 

And, your signed PETITION will be an important symbol that you will not quit . . . you will not abandon innocent unborn children at the hour of their greatest need.

 

So please sign and return your PETITION along with one urgent and generous gift of $35, $50, $100, $250, or $500 to the Susan B. Anthony List.

 

You may also sign our PETITION online and make your voice heard immediately, today. Simply log on to www.SBA-List.org/Santorum20l4 to add your name to this effort donate your gift via credit card.

 

No matter how much you can afford to contribute, please act quickly - today, if possible. Thank you in advance.

 

Sincerely,

Rick Santorum

 

P.S. When you return your signed PETITION FOR LIFE, it's important that you also include a generous financial gift. If you're blessed with the resources to send $500 or $250, please do. But your contribution of $100, $50, $35 or any amount will be helpful to the Susan B. Anthony List. Every penny will be used to mobilize more Americans in the fight to cut off taxpayer funding from abortionists.

 

So please return your signed PETITION today along with your gift. Or if it's more convenient, sign our PETITION at www.SBA-List.org/Santorum20l4 online and make a sacrificial gift using their secure credit card donation form. Thank you and God bless you.

(Sample Petition)

PETITION FOR LIFE

To:

Senator David B. Vitter and Senator Mary L. Landrieu

Representative Vance McAllister

 

Whereas, American taxpayers are forced to subsidize organizations like Planned Parenthood, which promote, advocate for, and perform abortions;

 

Whereas, the vast majority of Americans agree that we should not be forced to pay for the taking of an innocent unborn life;

 

Whereas, the federal budget has run a deficit exceeding $1 trillion for each of the last four years. Politicians say we need to cut spending. If that is true, this is an opportunity to make a spending cut that the American people will approve of and that will save the lives of innocent children;

 

Whereas, I urge you to vote "YES" on all legislation and amendments that would eliminate or reduce federal funding for Planned Parenthood and any other organization foreign or domestic that performs abortions.

 

Respectfully, _______________________________________ Date: ______________
