The “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act of 2017” which passed in the House of Representatives this week has a companion bill, S. 184, currently with the Senate Committee on Finance. The bill has 37 or 38 co-sponsors, all Republican, and including a majority of the Republicans on the Committee. However, three Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee are not co-sponsors of the bills: Richard Burr (NC), Pat Toomey (PA) and Dean Heller (NV).

If you live in one of these states please, please call your Senator! (The rest of us should call ours too, but these three are going to be important to the thing getting out of committee and on to the Senate floor.)

For reference, link to the bill text for the House bill below. On my phone and don’t have a link to the Senate bill handy.
