GOP Moves to Defund Planned Parenthood
Congressional Republicans are moving to pull millions in taxpayer funding from Planned Parenthood in the wake of investigative videos showing workers discussing the sale of baby organs.
Rep. Diane Black (R., Tenn.) introduced the Defund Planned Parenthood Act on Tuesday night just hours after a second undercover video was released showing a Planned Parenthood official pricing out baby organs. The bill would strip the nation’s largest abortionist of taxpayer dollars. [ Source ]
