Today, Pope Francis begins his historic visit to the United States, with plans to stop in Washington DC, New York City and Philadelphia.
With all of the excitement surrounding the visit of one of the world's foremost religious leaders, #PopeinUS has remained one of the top trends on Twitter this week.
As Pope Francis prepares to address the US Congress this Thursday, Ohio Right to Life is eager to drive the dialogue on Twitter to promote the dignity of human life and the de-funding of Planned Parenthood.
Will you join us for some Twitter activism tomorrow, Wednesday, from 12 pm to 1 pm? Follow Ohio Right to Life @ohiolife.
We want Pope Francis to move Congress to action--action to de-fund Planned Parenthood in the Continuing Resolution, the spending bill that Congress must pass by September 30.
All you need to do is tag Pope Francis in your Tweets using his handle (@Pontifex) and use two hashtags: #DontFundPP and #PopeinUs
Some Tweet samples you can feel free to steal include:
- “All life has inestimable value even the weakest and most vulnerable.” - @Pontifex We prayerfully ask Congress: #DontFundPP #PopeinUS
- “Let’s say ‘Yes’ to life and ‘No’ to death.” - @Pontifex We prayerfully ask Congress: #DontFundPP #PopeinUS
- “Let us respect and love human life, especially vulnerable life in a mother’s womb.” - @Pontifex We prayerfully ask Congress: #DontFundPP #PopeinUS
