And here’s exactly what to say:
“Vote NO on Sen. Rand Paul’s Amendment 940 in order to protect global health and poverty-fighting programs.”
If Sen. Paul’s amendment goes through, it means millions of kids won’t get life-saving vaccines. It means moms won’t be able to get medicine to make sure their babies are born HIV-free. Lives are at stake.
We heard something like this might be coming. And we talked to lots of people who work in the Senate. And they said the best way to stop something like this is to flood the Senate with phone calls. And we’re not doing it alone. Lots of our partners – CARE, Save the Children, World Vision – are asking their members to make calls right now, too.
Senator Rand Paul needs to know we mean business. We’re fighting this amendment with all we’ve got.
