for Texas denizens

I just received the following action alert. The Wholly Mammoth pisses me off, and not just for this:

Texas Representative Arlene Wohlgemuth just proposed a RIDER to the House Appropriations Bill which would prohibit any Planned Parenthood that is an abortion provider from receiving ANY state funding. This includes our family planning money as well as our breast and cervical cancer screening funds.

YOUR CALLS ARE IMPORTANT - EVERY STAFF MEMBER, EVERY BOARD MEMBER, EVERY BOARD OF ADVOCATES MEMBER NEEDS TO CALL EVERY MEMBER OF THE APPROPRIATIONS COMMITTEE - We could lose public funding to help women prevent unintended pregnancies!

ACTION:
Today, please call all members of the House Appropriations Committee (see below) asking them to oppose the Wohlgemuth rider to Article IX regarding funding for abortion related services.
