Senator Lugar key senate vote on Pence's defund Planned Parenthood Amendment

Indiana Right to Life just sent the following statement to their email list.

Breaking news… Senator Richard Lugar is currently noncommittal on whether he will support the Pence Amendment to keep all federal funding from going to Planned Parenthood Federation of America or its affiliates, for any purpose. The Amendment applies to all federal funds and would be effective through the end of this fiscal year.

Contact Senator Lugar immediately and urge him to support the Pence Amendment in any final appropriations bill.

This on the heels of Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock kicking off his campaign to challenge Lugar in next year’s U.S. Senate primary.
