From a recently received e-mail from Billy Valentine of the Facebook group Catholics in the GOP:

Pence Amendment to De-Fund Planned Parenthood failed, 187-247. We received 20 Dem votes, 3 more than we did last time the amendment was offered two years ago.

Yet, the vote clearly shows elections have consequences, and the need to work hard in 2010 so pro-lifers can take back Congress.

In the meantime, please continue to lobby Congress hard on the health-care bill.
